Edit an activated automated email

Can you please update the program to be able to add/edit an automation series? As a new creator I am constantly changing things and need to upgrade my welcome series as I learn new things. Having to make a new one every single time is becoming overwhelming in the process.

Hi @ArikkaH thank you for sharing this feedback with us! We have opened up your idea so other users can weigh in on this as well.

Status changed to: Acknowledged

We are updating the status of this request to support our new community idea statuses and add better insight into your feedback. We can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on this feature request but should indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and are continuing to collect requests on this idea.


This is a must!  And it is also a very common feature amongst other providers.  Dynamic emails containing current and relevant information sell better than stale ones.


Quick point of clarification in case this request isn't clear - the content of emails in an active series can be edited.


Once the automated campaign is activated, you can no longer re-order or add steps to the automation. You can also not change the trigger type or duration.


Once the automated trigger for the automated campaign is set to disabled, contacts will no longer be added to the series and the ability to edit the emails also no longer works. 


There seems to be two separate changes being requested here. It seems like some want to change the automated triggers, and some are losing the ability to edit emails from a disabled trigger. I'm going to move some of these comments for editing the duration trigger into their an existing thread on that so that we can track and make appropriate updates to these issues separately. Thanks!
