    Hi

    I'm using segments to update subscriber info and then send emails based on those.

    1) How quickly do segments update?
    (I.e. move subscribers between segments based on fields changing)

    2) If I have segment for 'STATUS=NEWLEAD' and segment for 'STATUS=LINKCLICKED' and I have autoresponders for each status.

    If a new lead, clicks on a link and the status field updates to 'LINKCLICKED' I assume it will be removed from the 'NEW LEAD' segment and moved to the 'LINKCLICKED' segment which has different autoresponders (and not get the 'NEW LEAD' sequence)?

    Just checking...before I roll this out on a few accounts.

    It's instant because nothing actually gets moved anywhere :D

    Thanks! So it can easily move people between segments. easier way than having lots of lists!
