Configuring Drip Campaigns

In Propertybase version 1.474 we've added Drip Campaign functionality to all Contact record pages. This article will walk through the process of configuring Drip Campaigns to work in Propertybase accounts upgrading to 1.474 or later.

How do I know if I've configured Drip Campaigns?

  • Click the app launcher and select Drip Campaigns in the list of applications.
  • If you see the "Email Automation Is Inactive" message, you do not have drip campaigns configured.

Next we need to register a Force.com domain. Once you've decided what you want that to be - move to the next step.

  • Click the app launcher in the top left of the page.
  • Select Settings.
  • Click New in the top right corner of the screen.

Restart Email Scheduler

Next we need to restart the Email Scheduler.

  • Click the app launcher in the top left of the page and select Control Center.
  • Click Email Scheduler.

Configure Contact Page Layout

Once you have completed the first two steps, we need to add necessary buttons to the contact record page.

If you see the Automated Email Opt Out checkbox on the contact details page, you can skip this step.
