5. Commonly Asked Questions

The changes will reflect to future clients who will be added to the Journey, but won't affect the existing ones. You can restart the journey for your existing clients so they'd get the changes. 

First, terminate the journey by going to your contacts dashboard, mark the checkbox of your selected contact, Bulk Action>Journeys>Terminate Journey. 

Then reapply the trigger. Sign up on the Form using the same email address.
