Why does it say 1001 as the "Last Message" for some subscribers?

If you've added subscribers to your list before adding your first follow up message, our system automatically sets them to Broadcast Only status in order to avoid sending unintended or incomplete messages.

This is done by putting a very high value as the "Last Follow Up Received" for those subscribers.  Since this value indicates what message a subscriber received last and determines what they are to receive next, they'll never receive your Follow Up messages since it is so high.

If you change the "Last Follow Up Received" number for subscribers to "0", they'll receive the first message in your sequence a few hours later—followed by the remaining messages at the intervals you set.

The "Last Follow Up Received" setting is only applicable to the Follow Up Series feature. This setting has not impact on Broadcasts or Campaigns, so your audience will still be able to receive scheduled Broadcast messages as well as series of Campaign messages.

If your account was created after 02/03/2020, the Follow Up Series feature will not be present within your account as this feature has been deprecated. Creating an automated series of messages can be done with Campaigns.
