Campaign builder - element statues explained

Goals, sequences, and sequence tools have statuses. By default, all campaign elements start in a Draft status. In order to publish these elements so that your contacts can be added and for the processes to run, the elements must be placed into a Ready status, and then published.  This article will go over how to accomplish this.
