How to clone a Marketo program with Knak
Build your email just as you normally would and then select Publish > Sync
On the popup select 'Create New Program' under Sync to a New Program.
Next pick the program you want to clone.
Give your program a name, description and select the location you want to clone the program into.
You can either sync immediately or there is an option to Save & Sync Later. If you choose to sync it later, reopen the email and click on the Info tab and look for the Sync button on the right hand side.
On the final screen review your details and confirm you want to begin the sync.
That's it. Your program will be cloned and your email synced into the new program. Easy!
How to schedule and deploy an email campaign from within Knak
As an addition to the above functionality you can schedule and deploy an email from within Knak.
To enable this in your account contact your Knak customer success manager.
Once this feature is active repeat the above steps to bring up the program details popup. You will now see a new section in which you can schedule your campaign.
Check off 'Schedule Email' and select the date, time and timezone to send the email campaign.
Important! To schedule Default programs, there needs to be a smart campaign that triggers the email to send. Email programs can use the default smart list as long as there is at least 1 lead.
When you clone a program any smart campaigns are deactivated in the new program.
We will activate all smart campaigns when we schedule the program via Knak launch.
If you don't want to schedule the email, you can do it later by clicking on 'Resync'.
Resyncing will also allow you to:
Change the scheduled date.
Remove the scheduled program date.
Update the email if there have been changes.
Important! The email will require a subject line. If the email does not have a subject line, it will not be able to be scheduled and used in a campaign.
Clicking on 'Sync' will clone the program, sync your email to it and schedule your campaign all in one step.
