Trigger Action Settings

Overview

Triggered Actions are a type of Rule within the Loyalty platform. Triggered Actions are used to monitor changes to a Loyalty Member, and to execute a specific action when a specific condition is satisfied.

The Triggered Action Settings screen is used to create and manage Trigger Groups. Triggered Actions are typically organized into these Trigger Groups, which are used to control which Triggered Actions are executed. The platform supports two different types, or "strategies," of Trigger Groups:

Note: Triggered Actions that execute within one Group have no impact on Actions in another Group.

Access

To access the Triggered Actions Settings screen, select Rules from the Main Navigation Menu, then select Settings > Triggered Action Settings from the Sub-Category menu.
