In Automation Campaigns you can create and send personalised, cross-channel marketing experiences.
For example, you can create a reactivation campaign flow to target customers who last purchased a specific product 6 months ago.
You do this by setting up a campaign in the Automation Campaign Builder that is segmented by product, with different wait times based on the product order gaps. Then you can send a personalised email with product-related content, and build a list of contacts to re-target via Facebook as a follow-up action.
- Automation Campaigns: Conditions and Actions - for setting up your automation flow
- Edit an existing Automation Campaign - to edit your current campaigns
- Save and Publish an Automation Campaign - for detail on testing mode, previewing and publishing your campaign.
Go to: Campaigns > Automation Campaigns
The Automation Campaigns dashboard displays:
You can see your active campaigns in the top panel and your published campaigns in the lower panel.
- Active automation campaign are currently sending, i.e. the flows and templates are live and emails are being generated to contacts in those flow.
- Published campaigns are completed and available for use in testing, or ready to be set to Active.
Note: If you archive a campaign, you cannot retrieve it again easily without contacting Ometria’s support team. The retrieval process can take a while, so we recommend that if you accidentally archive a campaign that you recreate the flow as the quickest solution.
Select EDIT to view the campaign and make changes.
Alternatively, select CREATE NEW CAMPAIGN to start a new campaign.
Select Clone to create a duplicate copy of the selected campaign (automatically titled 'Copy of etc').
Cloned campaigns automatically display under Published Campaigns on this screen.
MANAGE TEMPLATES opens the Templates screen for automation campaigns.

The Automation Campaign builder allows you to create specific and comprehensive flows for your automated marketing activities.
Each flow path is based on each contact’s profile.
From this screen you can define the conditions under which a contact will enter a campaign, as well as:
- what emails to send them
- what tags to assign to them
- the conditions under which they will exit the flow.
See Automation Campaigns: Conditions and Actions for more information.

Edit Campaign Settings
In the ‘Edit Campaign Settings’ pop-up you can define some of your key email settings for this campaign, including the ‘from’ email address and name.
You can also add your tracking parameters (UTM parameters) and set mutual exclusivity (i.e. excluding contacts already active in other automation campaign flows), if desired.
Note: These fields are optional and specific to the automation flow you are working on. If you leave any of these fields blank, the default data in Email Settings will apply.
Ensure that contacts active in other automation campaigns are excluded from this one.
Select as many as you require from your live campaigns.
