Heeey lemlister!

If you have a failed step for a specific lead in your multichannel sequence, then lemlist will skip this fail step and go to the next available step.

Let's say your LinkedIn invite failed for a particular lead, then lemlist will skip any other LinkedIn step of your sequence for this lead and will directly send the next step that is not using the same channel, e.g. email, call.

☝️ When lemlist skips failed step(s) the next available step is launched without delay

☝️ If no other channel is found after the failed step, the campaign stops

☝️ You can see your skipped steps in your "Activity" and "Stats" reports

Let me give you a few examples to clear that up!


Step 1: LinkedIn visit (2-day delay)

Step 2 : LinkedIn message (1-day delay)

Step 3 : email (3-day delay)

Step 4 : email

If Step 1 fails, then Step 2 will be skipped and the sequence will jump to Step 3 without delay, meaning Step 3 will be send the next day.


Step 1: email (2-day delay)

Step 2: email (1-day delay)

Step 3: email (1-day delay)

Step 4: LinkedIn visit (2-day delay)

Step 5: LinkedIn message (3-day delay)

Step 6: email (2-day delay)

Step 7: manual task

If the 1st email fails or bounces for a lead, then Step 2 and Step 3 will be skipped, and the sequence will jump to Step 4.

Once the sequence gets to step 6, it will be detected as a skipped channel and the sequence will jump to Step 7.


Step 1 : email (2-day delay)

Step 2 : email (1-day delay)

Step 3 : email

If the 1st email fails or bounces for a lead the campaign will stop as there is no other channels available.

Enjoy ❤️
