How does the Amount filter work?

Set this filter to define the number of subscribers affected by an action. Example: send a gift certificate to 10 subscribers only.

This is a single number, so for example, if you type 100 this means that the first hundred subscribers who meet your condition will be affected by the action.

Note that the positive (green) connector lets through only the specified number of subscribers. So whenever you attach an action to the positive connection on Amount, we trigger this action for the selected number of subscribers. The remaining subscribers are the subject of an action attached to the negative (red) connector.

See how this works on an example:

gr-automation-filter-amount-negative_positive

The filter selects only the 100 subscribers who get to this point of the workflow. When they are included in the filtered amount they receive a message (“See ya at the venue. You’ve won the conference ticket”). The remaining subscribers, starting from 101, are moved to another campaign.
