One-Time Campaign

One-Time Campaign

One-time campaigns are one-time messages sent to a specified target audience, on the date and time selected.

Common use cases include:

  • One-time promotions
  • Events and announcements
  • Special offers
  • News and updates

One-time campaigns can include follow-up messages based on actions taken by the target audience. For example you can re-engage those who did not open your Email, SMS, or Push message by sending them a follow-up message on the same or different channel.

dEngage "Channel Sends" have been replaced with "Campaign". All single sends previously created in your account can be accessed from Campaign > One-Time Campaigns.

This field is where you will enter the name you want to give your campaign.

The campaign name is not shared with your target audience. It is only displayed for people using the platform and in campaign reports. 



Tag is a label you attach to your campaign to identify or categorize it. Multiple tags can be added to a single campaign.

Tagging is flexible and can be implemented in the way that best suit your needs

Please view the Campaign Node page for additional information.


Any recipient who enters this node will wait for the stated minute, hour or day before moving to the next node.  

Engagement SplitThis node should be used after a "send node”. It splits the target audience by their engagement (delivery, open, click) for the previous "send". You can combine this node with different nodes to split recipients into different paths based on their engagement or lack of engagement. f
