If you pause your campaign entirely - no follow up emails will be sent out. If you still want to send out the follow-ups, but pause just the first email, we recommend deactivating the first email for all your sequences. To do this go to your desired campaign, click on sequences - make your to open all of the sequences if you have more than one active, then uncheck the checkbox by the side of the first email in the sequence and then don't forget to save. Now you won't contact any new candidates but still continue to send follow ups to the ones you've already reached out to.
If you need any further assistance drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
