Adding Follow-ups and Adjusting Sending Options
Once you’ve created an Outbound Campaign, you can manage and edit your follow-up messages. Follow-up messages will reach the candidate when the candidate does not respond to the First Message or the previous follow-up.
Adding Follow-up Messages
When creating a Campaign, 3 follow-up messages will be automatically created. They will automatically be sent out depending on the number of days set between messages, by default the follow-ups will send out 3 days from the previous message.
When a Candidate responds (which includes email bounces or automated out-of-office responses), the follow-ups will stop automatically and the Candidate Status will change to "Responded". Check out Handling Candidate Replies for more details on Candidate responses.
Adding Additional Follow-ups
Step 1. In your Campaign page, select the "Templates" tab,
Step 2. Scroll down to the bottom of the "Follow-ups" section, and select "Add new follow-up email".
Step 1. Go to the follow-up you would like to delete.
Step 2. Select the trash can icon on the top-right corner of the follow-up.
Adjusting the Sendable Days or Number of Days of a Follow-up

Step 2. Scroll down and find your selected Follow-up.
Step 3. Select the "Advanced Options" drop-down menu.
Step 4. Adjust the number in the "Send day(s) after the first message" section.
Step 5. Adjust the days of the week the follow-up can be sent in the "Only send on these days of the week" section.
