I am new to Journey Builder.
I have created a sendable DE (Subscriber DE) and 2 emails. The DE has following fields:
SUBSCRIBERKEY, EMAILADDRESS and STAGE.
STAGE field is set to
1 for all subscribers and will be updated during the journey.
What I wanted to implement with Journey Builder is:
- In Week1 send Email1 to all contacts with STAGE = 1
- After sending Email1, update some subscribers in DE and set STAGE = 2
- In Week 2 send Email 2 to all contacts with STAGE = 2
In Contact Builder:
- I have created an
Attribute Group(Subscriber Attributes) and
- Linked Contact ID with SUBSCRIBERKEY in Subscriber DE. The subscriber's SUBSCRIBERKEYs match with those in Subscribers in SFMC.
I created a Journey and select Subscriber DE as Audience, then added
Subscriber Attributes > Subscriber DE > STAGEinto
Filter Criteria: STAGE equal to 1.
After first Email I added decision split and used the same field in Filter Criteria: STAGE equal to 2.
I then saved and tested the journey but never seen any contacts evaluated and accepted into the journey.
I read a previous post and found someone said population should be added. I navigated to the data extension but found it strange that all the data extensions are available except Subscriber DE.
Please discuss how can I make this work completely as per the steps I have performed already.
