Cakemail Premium accounts have access to looping automation. You can change your plan type by clicking Upgrade Plan in your user profile submenu.
A loop allows you to repeat an action several times. You can use this for various purposes, such as sending an unopened email three times to the same customer or sending it until it is opened. Additionally, it could send reminders about upcoming events or any other communication that requires repeated delivery. Lastly, looping can also be combined with different conditions and actions to reiterate them. We'll show you how to automate this with our app, which can be used according to your needs.
