Hi Zeph, what’s the trigger on the flow? Would you be able to send a screenshot of the first part of the flow?


Also, welcome to Klaviyo! :)  Curious, did you switch from another provider?

im quite happy with klaviyo thus far! thanks for the welcome. i just did 2 tutorials about setting it up and making a list. it seems pretty intuitive. i have done a little bit of mailchimp years ago but in no way do i have experience in email systems and marketing and flows. 


so i set up my first list of contacts and want to send a soft launch email to them. i got one email done and want to send it out immediately. then work on the rest of the flow to go out in a few days. i havent set up a trigger yet and didnt get any insight as to how to setup a trigger on the tutorial. i get what a trigger does… sets the flow in motion and “send” the emails. but i dont know where or how to get that to happen.

Hey @zeph,

Welcome to Klaviyo! 

Since it sounds like you are setting up a list triggered flow; also known as a welcome series flow within Klaviyo, I would recommend taking a look at the Guide to Creating a List-Triggered Flow and Creating an Email Welcome Series articles if you havn’t already on how to set up this flow and its list trigger. 

I would also suggest taking a quick read through of the Community post that @Julie Hayes on this topic:

Because this is also a new flow, I would also recommend taking a look at some other articles that may prove helpful to you:
