    Ciao. I have about 1,500 emails from past customers that I would like to use with the Follow Up process.

    First, I have an email that uses the {subscription_confirm_url} field to update the contacts Status from ‘Not Confirmed’ to ‘Confirmed’. Then once the past customer is confirmed, I would like the Follow Up process to start.

    Is there a way to do this? Or maybe a different confirmation process I should use?

    Ah, I think I figured it out. On the Subscribers setup page, I need to set ‘Follow Up’ to Yes.

    Addio 🙂

    I’m trying to do the same thing but my subscribers doesn’t have a “setup” tab. Version 3.6.4
    just has…

    Search
    New subscriber
    Massive changes
    Statistics
    Import
    Export

    For the subscribers menu. Am I missing something?

    Click Edit for a subscriber and scroll down. Follow Up setting is near the bottom.

    I was looking for “massive changes” 🙂 Adding all confirmed subscribers, to the Follow up series.

    Ah. You’ll have to dig into your php admin to run some sql on your database. This is a little dangerous, so if you are not familiar with sql, it’s a good time to learn . First thing to learn is how to backup and restore from a backup. 🙂

    For example: UPDATE xxx_newsletter SET followup= 1 where created > ‘2014-10-04’

    xxx = the table prefix assigned to your install of wordpress.

    …and the where statement can be used if you want to limit the update to only some users. But you could just set everyone to followup = 1 (Yes), then back in the wordpress screen, filter subscribers by ‘Unconfirmed’ and then bulk send the confirmation email.

    good sql learning resource: http://www.w3schools.com/default.asp

    …among other things web techy

    Good luck
