Campaign is marked as completed too early

Woodpecker campaigns are displayed as Completed if there are no more emails in the sending queue. 

However, sometimes you may notice that your campaign is marked as Completed even if some emails haven't been sent yet.
In this case, have look at To Check tab.  

If there are any prospects marked as To Check, a red dot appears next to the column's name:

Let's say that you run a campaign for 500 prospects. After a few days since it has started, you check the statistics - you find out that 200 emails were delivered, 4 email addresses were marked as invalid and 1 as bounced. Together it makes only 205 emails, however, the App shows that the campaign is completed. So why Woodpecker hasn't sent the rest of the emails?

To find it out, open To Check column → category Missing snippet.

Category Missing snippet includes prospects whose custom fields – snippets are missing. Woodpecker cannot send emails to them because there is no data to be merged with the snippet used in the copy. However, those addresses are not considered as queued emails – that's why the campaign's status says it is Completed although not all of the emails have gone out. 

In the example shown above, a column with Snippet 3 is marked in red because this particular snippet was added to the copy, but the corresponding fields are empty in the database.

As soon as you fill the missing fields and click 'Send', Woodpecker will mark those prospects as 'Queued' and the sending process will be resumed. 

Alternatively, you can remove the snippet from the email copy and bulk change your prospects' status. Learn how to update statuses in bulk » Please mind that bulk change isn't available in the tab 'To Check' yet.
