Relocated conditions and delay settings
Previously you accessed the delay and tag conditions for a message from the menu in a journey’s Manage screen. Now you will click for each.
New condition type
In addition to setting tag conditions for a message, now you can also create a condition based on whether or not a channel is associated with a Named UserA customer-provided identifier used for mapping multiple devices and channels to a specific individual. . You can target either Authenticated channels (the channel is associated with a named user) or Anonymous channels. The channel condition is available for the first message in a journey only.
