For the test to work correctly, activate your workflow before testing it.

For steps such as Wait until and If/Else conditions, make sure to manually trigger the event with your test email, for example:

  • If you specify to "wait until the contact open the email", make sure to open the test email you received to trigger the next step of the workflow.
  • If you select an "if/else condition with a contact attribute", e.g. if the contact is a woman, make sure to create and fill in the attribute on your account beforehand.
