Journey settings


While creating a journey, select an app from your Pushwoosh account – the journey will be applied to users of that app only.
Please keep in mind that you won't be able to change the app applied to the journey later.

Conversion Goals

Conversion Goals let you measure the effectiveness of your Customer Journey. A Goal is a target event indicating that the customer reaches the marketing objective you set. To define the journey's goals, press the Conversion Goals button on the top of the page.
Then, choose the event you consider the indicator of the journey's success.
To specify the event's attributes, press the Add condition button. Choose an attribute, operator, and value(s).
To cancel remaining messages once a user reaches a Conversion Goal, check the End journey after this event checkbox. Messages that haven't been sent to the moment the goal is reached won't be sent to the customer who reached the goal.
When several goals are set, a user who reaches any of them ends the journey at that point.
Press Apply to save the goal setup.
When the journey is active, press the Conversion Goals button to see the stats:
For each point users can reach the goal at, the count of goals reached is displayed in the point's statistics shown by hovering the journey point over.

Silent Hours

To prevent users from getting messages at an inappropriate time, set the Silent Hours when no notifications and emails are sent to journey travelers.
Press the Silent Hours button at the top of the page and set the do-not-disturb period in 24-hour format. Here, you can specify for what messaging channels the Silent Hours will be applied.
That period will repeat at the same time every day in the subscriber's device timezone. During Silent Hours, if a user goes to a messaging journey element, they will wait until the silent hours end and then receive the scheduled message.

Frequency Capping

As some events that start journeys can repeat from time to time (even several times a day) and audience segments are updated regularly, you might consider not overwhelming users with messages sent through the journeys. Here, Frequency Capping comes in handy – define how many times a particular person can enter the journey within a specified period.
Let’s say a user has added a product to their cart, thus starting the journey. If no capping is applied, that same user will enter the journey once again if adds some other product after exiting the journey. To prevent users from entering the one and the same active journey too often, set the Frequency Capping rules.
Set Frequency Capping to let users go through the journey once:
  • a day (since the moment they enter),
  • a week (seven days after the start events happens),
  • a month (30 days from entering the journey),
  • in a three month period,
  • or even once in all the time the journey is active.
Frequency Capping periods are counted off from the moment a user entered the journey.
In the example below, a user gets in the journey when they add some product to their shopping cart and won't re-enter if triggers the same event within a day from entering.

Clone journeys

Any journey can be cloned, including all the elements and settings. Cloning journeys might be helpful, for instance, when you prepare a sample journey and re-use it later, customizing its parts as needed for a specific goal or case.
To create a copy, press the Clone option in the action menu next to the journey's name in the list.

Launch journeys

Once everything's set up, press the Launch campaign button at the top right of the journey canvas to let users enter the journey and go through. From that moment, the journey starts tracking users' behaviors and sending messages to them.

Edit journeys

Some elements of the activated journeys can be edited later. Updating journey points' content, you can test the effectiveness of your communications, edit accidental errors, or adjust your customer journeys to some special events, changing conditions, and updated needs.
To edit a journey element, double-click it on the canvas and press Edit Settings in the stats window opened. Then, edit the content and press Save.
Saved changes come in effect within five minutes.
Users who have reached the edited point to the moment you save the updates won't be affected by the changes.
The following settings and elements cannot be edited after journey activation:
  • Silent Hours
  • Frequency Capping
  • Entry settings
  • Settings and elements on which the journey flow depends: A/B splitters, Push Open splitters of Push elements, etc.
