The term "pause" refers to a type of step that can be incorporated into your drip campaign.
The Pause step sets a wait time between steps. Pauses are used to prevent the mailings in a drip campaign from going out back to back or to manage the length of time between emails/ flag events, etc.
You have the option of selecting hours, days or weeks.
Simply drag the pause over to the desired space in your workflow and click the Pencil icon to set the amount of hours, days or weeks to pause.
NOTE: Mailings use the scheduled time of the FIRST mailing in the drip to determine send time for subsequent mailings. If you send your first mailing at 9 am, pause for a week, and send Mailing #2, Mailing #2 will also send at 9 am one week after Mailing #1.
