Canceling and Resuming Journeys

Why manually cancel journeys?

QuickMail, by default, will stop follow-ups when a reply is detected.

However, you can set a campaign to continue journeys on reply.
If a prospect contacts you to be removed from a campaign that is set to continue journeys on reply,
you can manually cancel the said prospect's journey to stop further follow-ups from sending.

Journeys are also manually canceled when you have made contact with your prospects outside QuickMail,
such as over the phone or on social media platforms.

When to resume journeys?

Journeys can be resumed immediately or at a specific date and time.

1. Resuming journeys immediately

After clicking Resume, a Confirm resuming journeys window will pop up.

To resume journeys immediately, click Resume immediately and click Resume.


Why resume journeys immediately?

If the campaign has been completed and you want to add more steps to it, you can resume journeys immediately after adding more steps to the campaign.
This will allow the prospects to continue their journeys to the added steps.

Journeys can also be resumed immediately to skip a wait step. 
If you want a journey to bypass the wait step that it is on, you can resume the journey immediately and the journey will skip the wait step.

Journeys that ran into an error can also be resumed immediately once the error is fixed.
This is so that the journeys will continue.

2. Resuming journeys on a specific date and time

You can also resume journeys on a specific date and time.

From the Confirming resume journeys window, just select Pick another time.
You can then type the specific date and time, or pick from the calendar.

After setting up the date and time, click Resume.

Why resume journeys at a specific date and time?

When a journey is marked as out-of-office, the wait step will be extended to another 14 days on top of the Wait step.

Journeys marked as out-of-office are usually resumed at a specific date and time,
if the prospect will be back earlier or later than the extended wait step.

For example, if a prospect is on maternity leave and will be back in the office after a month,
you can resume the prospect's journey a day before or on the day the prospect will be back.
