I need to make a list using the data from a previous email campaign.


Recommended Posts

1) Open Workflow, select trigger "Campaign Emails opened"   

2) select previous Campaign name you used,

The difficulty from here is that the Add to  and Delete from list  does not work in 7.0 & 7.1  so you might want to

3) add a  edit a tag  stage - add - #mailopened  which will then be sortable in gridview on that tag name,  once selected,  you can then do a mass action

4) more...   new list from selected

Hi Attila,

Following up with "Add to  and Delete from list  does not work in 7.0 & 7.1 " I have fixed the auto fill for those workflow actions and will release it next update. Are you having any other issues with those workflow actions or was it just the auto fill that was broken?

Hi PMC,

 

Do you want to create the list from a Campaign that is about to run or one that already ran. They will be different methods although I dont think you can do the latter without working directly on the MySQL database.

 

If your campaign is still to run, then Attilas suggestion is the way.

  • Create a workflow with the 'Campaing email opened' trigger.
  • I would use a Ad Tag and rather to create a dynamic list.

As the emails are opened, the workflow will tag the contact and your list will grow dynamically. Apart from that, as Attila mentioned the static list function doesn't work so using the tag method is the only way.

 

However, if you want to make a list of contacts that opened from a old campaign, I dont think there is any straight forward way to do this.

Hi Eugene,

Thank you for your response.

Unfortunately, I did want to do it with a campaign that's already sent.

At least I know for the future, though.

Thanks again, and best wishes. :)
