In this article, we will explain how to test an Automation workflow to make sure it works well.
Good to know
- To learn how to create an Automation workflow, read Creating a custom Automation workflow and Using an Automation workflow template.
- For workflows that contain track events, such as the Abandoned Cart workflow, we recommend testing the workflow with a real test scenario by acting like your contacts would (add a product to your cart, click a specific button, etc.).
After creating a workflow, we recommend you test it to make sure it works as intended. Brevo offers a Test your workflow function when creating or editing a workflow:
Test your Automation workflow
💡 Good to knowFor the test to work correctly, activate your workflow before testing it.
To test a workflow:
- Click the Test your workflow icon.
- Enter the email address you want to use for the test.
- If your workflow contains an Add a delay step and you want to skip it, select Skip 'Wait For' steps.
- Click DONE.
For steps such as Wait until and If/Else conditions, make sure to manually trigger the event with your test email, for example:
- If you specify to "wait until the contact open the email", make sure to open the test email you received to trigger the next step of the workflow.
- If you select an "if/else condition with a contact attribute", e.g. if the contact is a woman, make sure to create and fill in the attribute on your account beforehand.
Check the results of the test
To check the results of the test, go to Automation > Logs > Workflow logs. All tests appear under a log message that contains the word (test).
