Campaign Integration Mode

The Campaign Integration Mode setting allows you to configure what happens in Cinch when you create a campaign and schedule it to your email channel.
Create Template Only - By default, CampaignPilot will create an email template in your Cinch software when you schedule a campaign to the email channel. You will still need to manually schedule and send your email message in the Cinch software when in this mode.
Schedule Broadcast Mode - If toggled to this mode, CampaignPilot will create an email template in your Cinch software and additionally schedule a broadcast to your default customer segment. Cinch will automatically message your customers once your campaign is published.
Careful!! In Schedule Broadcast mode you will automatically message your Cinch customers once the CampaignPilot campaign is published.
