Suppression lists for workflows

A suppression list can now be added to any type of workflow

  • Every time a workflow campaign sends, subscribers in the suppression list are excluded from the deployment
  • CRM activity workflows
    Suppression lists for CRM workflows can be configured to dynamically import subscribers from the CRM. Each time the workflow runs, subscribers are imported from the CRM into the suppression list based on the criteria defined in the CRM and will be excluded from any additional campaigns in the workflow.
