Hi,

 

I have an automated welcome series drip that I'd like to be triggered by new signups to an existing list. However, I want to make sure to activate the series without sending the drip to everyone already on the list. If I set the trigger to be joining the list, will it send to everyone who's on the list already or will it only send to new signups?

Hello @NikkiaJ ,

 

If you set the trigger to any apply to list additions, it won't trigger for those already existing in the list at the time of activating. If you're doing a drip series, then the emails will send out to all new additions to that list - whether manually added by you, or added via signup form.
