Setting up an account verification reminder in Threads is super easy, yet powerful. Here’s an example of how the SendGrid Labs team used Threads to set up a reminder for Loader.io
Alternatively you can connect your web app to Threads using our Segment integration.
Paste this snippet on the page containing your sign up form or the sign up confirmation page. Replace “12345678” with the user’s userid (you can use the email address if you don’t give users userids), and “firstname.lastname@example.org” with the user’s email address.
Paste this snippet on the page your users will land on when verifying their email address (again using the real userid and email address).
Step 3 – Workflow Condition:
In this use case we only need 1 condition – ‘Sign Up’.
Step 4 – Workflow Action:
Now that we have our condition defined, we simply need to create a single action of ‘Send an email’. For Loader.io, we selected our email template ‘Not Verified Signup +3’ and set it to trigger after 3 days. We also created a cancellation condition for event ‘Verified Account’. This means, if the triggered user verifies his/her account prior 3 days, the triggered email will not send.
That’s it! You can either save this workflow as a draft or activate it.
For Loader.io, we took our workflow a few steps further. We set it up to trigger 2 workflows, one after 3 days and then a followup after 7 days. We could also add a 3rd to trigger immediately after sign up.
We also set up our workflow with a custom measurement goal – “Verified Account”. With a custom measurement goal we can easily track how many of our customers verified their accounts from one of our triggered emails.
