If I manually add contacts to a list that is part of an automation, will the automation trigger? I have a form that I created with CC for the automation but I have some people who are coming to me through a Facebook form where I have been able to download a CSV of leads. I uploaded them to that contact list and want to know if that is enough to trigger the automation

Hello @KymberlieB4 ,

 

As long as the automation path / series is set as a list-join (not welcome) trigger type, then any contacts being newly added to the list - whether through a sign up form submission, file import, or you using the Actions > Add to List function in your account - will trigger the automation.
