Multiple Triggers and UX Updates for Journeys

Set up multiple triggers to initiate Journeys in Airship.


The message series component of a journey is now labeled Sequence. See the announcement.

In addition to the new ability to initiate a JourneyA series of messages that is initiated by a trigger. Airship sends messages in the series based on your timing settings, and you can also set conditions that determine its audience and continuation. Sequences can be connected to each other and to other messaging components to create continuous user experiences in a Journey. based on more than one trigger, we made improvements to make it easier to create and edit in the Journey MapA visualization of messaging components that can be connected to create a continuous user experience. You can also create and edit from the map. .

Getting to the journey map is now a single click in the dashboard header.

  • Previously: Clicking Journeys in the dashboard header opened the Overview page.

  • Now: Clicking Journeys in the dashboard header loads the journey map.

We also removed the Overview and Explore & Learn pages. You can perform the same actions in the map as you did from Overview, and you can also do so from Messages OverviewA view of all your project’s messages, with options for editing their settings, content, status, and more. .

Status indicators in map cards

  • Previously: Journey status was not clearly indicated in the map.

  • Now: The map cards for journeys show obvious states:

    • Draft — The card is greyed-out, labeled Draft in grey, and does not display statistics.

    • Started — The card is not greyed-out, is labeled Active in green, and displays statistics.

    • Paused — The card is not greyed-out, is labeled Paused in orange, and displays statistics.

Default reporting time frame

  • Previously: For statistics displayed in the map, the default time frame was All Time.

  • Now: For statistics displayed in the map, the default time frame is Last 7 Days.

It’s easier to see performance changes with a smaller time frame selected, and we want to ensure that you are able to notice improvements or issues early. All Time can still be selected from the time frame menu.
