Sequence Testing

It would be great to be able to test a sequence immediately (see the emails and task notifications) instead of having to wait for it process through the timing.

I'm facing the same problem! Testing the sequence should be a great new feature. It's not efficient to wait delays...

I can't believe there is not an option to test a sequence. Doesn't make any sense. I am going to run my client's sequencing through Woodpecker. This just won't work, unfortunately.

Yes, please! I really need to be able to do this too. Testing out a sequence in real-time, when clients have very long sales cycles is not an option. I've got a client who has a gap of 2-4 months between some emails in their sequences!


The functionality we have in workflows to be able to test the entire process without the delays would be great.

Need this.

This would be super beneficial!! Users need to be able to test sequences before enabling them to ensure that they are going to operate as expected!!

Yes, this is a must! You need to be able to test emails in sequences just like we can on the marketing side.

This is standard in any CRM system.

It shows a lack of understanding who Hupspots' customers are by not having a "testing" feature!

Yes please!


I agree!  An "easy button" to "send test email now" for each email in the Sequence would be greatly beneficial to review content, layout, etc. prior to sending to customers/prospects.  I had to go through a manual work-around in order to see what I was actually sending out.  Thanks for having a suggestion box for user feedback!  Smiley Happy


Hm. I just got done creating a sequence and was looking for a test button. Not there?!? I'm not gonna send this sequence to prospects without testing it. So all the work for nothing. I can't believe this feature is not there. It's a bit like delivering a car without seat-belts. I'm gonna have a little cry now.

I feel your pain MG Robin. 


It's crazy not to have an email-sequence test functionality. What gives?


This is huge issue...especially to be able to format things correctly 


SalesLoft gives you a mobile preview window so you know how it will look on a mobile device where most emails get opened from.
