How to Start a Campaign
There are multiple ways of starting campaigns on prospects.
Depending on the volume and schedule, it's possible to start campaigns manually on one prospect or by bulk.
Prospects manually added to campaigns will start the campaign immediately.
Scheduling the start of campaigns is also possible and is the recommended set up for big lists. Setting up schedules will set a campaign to automatically take prospects from bucket/s and add them to the campaign at the specified time.
Listed below are the 5 ways to start Campaigns:
Starting a Prospect on a Campaign (One Prospect at a time)
You can view a prospect on the Prospect page (by clicking the prospect's icon) -> Click the 3 dots -> use the action start campaign.
Note: Adding a prospect to a campaign will start their journey immediately. That means the prospect will receive an email right away if the first step of the campaign is an email step.
Starting Campaigns on Multiple Prospects
Starting Campaigns through ZapierWith Zapier, it's possible to automatically create prospects in QuickMail and add them to the campaign using the "Create or Update Prospect" action.

Automatically Starting Campaigns on Inbound Prospects
Prospects can also be automatically from inbound emails. That means QuickMail will automatically create a new prospect when an email is detected in your inbox and the email sender is not on your list yet.
To enable the feature, go to Settings -> Inboxes -> click your inbox -> enable "Inbound Prospect Creation":
You can then choose which campaign you want to add the prospect to as soon as the prospect is created.
Note: QuickMail checks the inbox once every hour for replies.
