How do I edit an automation in a scheduled broadcast?

If you've scheduled a broadcast that has open or click automation and you have tags that you'd no longer like to use, you'll need to remove them.

In this article we will go over how to edit automation in your scheduled broadcast that applies a tag whenever someone clicks a link in the message. That tag can be used to trigger a campaign, or for future segmentation of your list.

Note: broadcast automations are not accessible on the AWeber Free plan. Upgrade your account to unlock this feature and many more by clicking here, or by contacting our Customer Solutions team.
