How do I edit an automation in a scheduled broadcast?

Broadcasts are a great way to provide subscribers with time-sensitive updates. Using Automations you can apply a tag to your subscribers when they click a link. That will trigger a message, or series of messages, to be sent when someone clicks a link in your broadcast. This is also a great way to provide your subscribers with specific information through segmentation.
