What is a blueprint?
The program blueprints provide a "template framework" for many of the industry-standard automated campaigns that our users want to build. They provide a starting point to get you going and offer guidelines and tips in various notes, touchpoint, and decision description fields. Blueprints provide flexibility and that can be adjusted or used as-is. Simply apply your data source, entrance criteria, and configure your content―then in minutes, it’s ready to activate!
