In this article, we will explain how to delay moving or copying subscribers using a link with AW Pro Tools.

AW Pro Tools is an application that provides a variety of tools that can be beneficial to your campaigns and AWeber account. "Smart Link" technology built into AW Pro Tools gives you ability to create links that can move or copy subscribers to another list in your AWeber account.

Please Note

AW Pro Tools advises you to test your links before sending out your message to ensure they are working as intended. Send a test message to yourself to an email address already subscribed to the list.

AW Pro Tools always advises turning off the AWeber click tracking for your message. This is because the click tracking can ruin the personalization set in the Smart Link and prevent it from working correctly.
