How do I edit an Automation in my Campaign?

As you work to build out your campaigns, you may need to edit an Automation so that it performs differently in the future. You'll have this option within the settings panel on the right-hand side of the screen. In this article we'll go over how to edit an existing automation within your campaign.

If you are using AWeber’s sales tracking in your list, and have the analytics JavaScript installed, automations will not trigger for that URL.

Note: When you edit an automation within your campaign, it will only affect new subscribers. Any subscriber who has progressed past that automation will not be affected by the change.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. First, select the campaign you would like to edit from the Campaigns section of the Messages tab.
