Can I also use campaign messages in the Campaigns module in an automation?

No, this is not possible. The Campaigns module and the Automations module are two separate modules that work in different ways.

What you can do to work efficiently is to duplicate a campaign message, so that it returns to the overview of the Messages module and can be used for an Automation. You do this as follows:

  1. Go to the Messages module
  2. Click the Campaign Messages tab
  3. Open the drop-down menu for the campaign message you want to use
  4. Click Duplicate
  5. The message appears in the overview of your messages
  6. Change the name in the overview, so that it is clear to yourself which message it concerns. A message name must always be unique.
  7. Change the status to Final. Only messages with the status Final can be selected in an automation. Think of it as a piece of safety. This way you don't accidentally use a test message in your automatic campaign.
