How to pause sequences during the weekend?Last Updated: June 17, 2019
Pausing an Active Sequence
With Gmelius Sequences, you can pause the flow during the weekends to ensure your messages are delivered at the most relevant times during the work week.
What does pausing a sequence do?
Pausing a sequence temporarily over the weekend stops the sequence from sending further emails and completing actions during the weekend and keeps your recipients exactly where they are in the sequence cycle. When automatically unpaused on Monday, your recipients will be reactivated in the sequence cycle, picking up where they left off.
For example, say it's Friday, 10 am and your next stage is scheduled to send in exactly 24 hours. You've selected the pause the sequence option during the weekends, the next stage will be sent on Monday at 10 am sharp instead of Saturday at 10 am.
