You can now see the seed addresses

Clicking the button brings up a pop up again showing the seeds.  

In here though you can do four things…

  1. Add new seeds unique to this campaign.
  2. Delete a seed that has been added uniquely to this campaign.
  3. Disable some default seeds if for some reason your system defaults are not appropriate.
  4. Enable some default seeds if after disabling them you want to re-include again.

When the campaign is initiated it will also send to whomever is in the seed list.

PLEASE NOTE: The seed functionality will not send for resends,campaign series, or other triggered sends.

Can you manually input an email address. When i search contacts the email address i want to use is not appearing?

At present, it needs to be a contact or contacts that exist in the system. You can create a new contact before adding them as a seed address. I will suggest to the Development team that we create a way to add the address manually on this screen.
