Use The Random Filter Node In Workflows

The Random filter node filters a workflow by sending configurable percentages of contacts down different paths.

About this task

Random Filter Node
Warning: The percentages you enter for each outgoing connection must add up to 100%. If they do not, an error will be shown when you attempt to save the workflow.

To use the Random filter node:


  1. Create a new workflow or edit an existing workflow.
    To create a new workflow, go to Automation > Workflows and click Create New Workflow.
    Note: If you created a new workflow, make sure you name it by clicking the pencil icon above the Node Palette.
  2. Drag the Random filter node on to the workflow canvas.
  3. Click on one of the five percentages in bold above each outgoing connection.
  4. Enter a numerical value between 0 and 100 representing a percentage.
  5. Click Done.
  6. Repeat steps three, four, and five for each outgoing connection you want to use.

    You do not have to use all five outgoing connections. For example, if you only want to use two outgoing connections, enter 50% for two of the outgoing connections, and enter 0% for the remaining three.

What to do next

An outgoing connection does not need to connect to another node. Contacts who reach an outgoing connection not connected to another node will not continue moving through the workflow.
