When you are ready with testing the program, you can choose from the following options:
- Activating the program. To do so, click Activate. After activating the program, it will use its original settings and test contacts will immediately exit the program.
When you freeze the test, consider the following:
- In the Automation Center: New contacts cannot enter the program and they are not queued. Contacts already in the program are queued at their next node.
- In Interactions: New contacts cannot enter the program and events that would otherwise trigger the program will not be queued. Contacts already in the program will be discarded. Contacts at Wait nodes will continue their journey based on the nodes’ settings if you reactivate the program. Otherwise, contacts at Wait nodes will be discarded if the wait period expires while the program is Frozen.
- Aborting the program. To do so, click Abort. You might want to abort the program after testing when you decide that you do not want to activate it, and you would rather delete it. You can only delete aborted Automation Center programs.
