Program List View and Create New Program

IMPORTANT - Impacted Due to 6.32 April/May Release - Doc Update is in progress...

Due to the latest major release this month, this article has been impacted. Steps, images, and playable GIFs in this article will soon be updated to reflect the latest changes.

Navigating to Journey Orchestrator > Program displays a list of existing Programs. Users can learn basic information regarding the Program from this view, filter the list for specific programs, and create and delete programs. They can also view publishing schedules for Programs and Outreaches, alongside refresh schedules for Program sources, in the calendar view.

List View

Within the list view, Programs can be categorized in five status: 

  • Draft: The program is still being configured and is not published at this time.
  • Scheduled: The program is scheduled to publish at a future date and time. The schedule can be removed by changing the program to a Draft status. For more information on scheduling Programs to publish, refer Configure Model and Emails for Programs.
  • Active: The program is published and is currently running. When a Program is Active, Admins can not edit beyond the following actions:
    • Generate a query to pull in participants
    • Modify the schedule for when the query runs
    • Configure Uniqueness Criteria
    • Remove Participants
    • Modify Email Templates (edits will be reflected for participants going forward)
    • Modify any CTA steps (edits will be reflected for participants going forward)


For more information on these available configurations, refer Adding Participants to a Program.

  • Pause: The program was published and Active, but the run was Paused. While further configurations are not possible at this time, the program can be set back to the Active status. The participants’ activity status can be captured for a period of 60 days after the program is paused. You can resume the program with the updated statuses of all participants’ activities before the pause period. Moreover, you can also resume the program from it’s original state before pausing the program.
  • Stop: The program was published and Active, but was Stopped and is no longer running. No new participants will be added, and all participants are moved to the status "knocked-off". Further configurations are not possible, and the program can not be started again. For more information on how to publish Programs and change their status, refer Configure Model and Emails for Programs.
    Note: Programs that belong to a relationship will be stopped, and the relationship ID will be marked as null at the Program and participant level, if the associated relationship is deleted using the Relationship delete operation. For more information on this operation, refer Data Operation.

You can filter the Program List View by clicking on the status name in the list key. The list view will then only display programs that match the selected status.


Click on the three dots of a program to see additional options.


Information: indicates the Model Type (NPS®, CSAT, Generic Survey, etc.) as well as the date it was created.

Edit: Allows the user to configure the program's participants as well as the model of the email campaign.

Clone: Allows users to create a copy of the program with the same configurations. The clone will have the same sources, but you still need to sync participants and publish the program to make it active. The application does not allow you to edit the cloned program until the cloning is completed, and you can view the cloning programs on the Draft tab. The In-progress status of program cloning is indicated with a new icon.


Activity Feed: Allows users to view an activity feed for each participant. The activity feed appears as a flow diagram and displays each step of the participant journey in the Program. This includes when the participant was sent an email, how long the participant waited between each step, view the participant responses to a survey, and when the participant was dropped from the AO journey and also the failure reason. For more information regarding the Activity Feed feature, refer Program: Participant Activity Feed.

Analytics: This navigates to the pre-built analytic reports for that specific Program. For more information, refer Program Analytics.

Delete: Deletes the Program.
