Options for deleting a prospect from a campaign

Mind you, in case a prospect received at least one email in that campaign, you won't be able to remove it from the campaign. However, you will be able to delete that prospect from the main list of Prospects. Learn how and check how it works.

How it works

  • Prospects will be completely removed from the campaign if they didn't receive any emails from it.

  • If a prospect receives at least one email before removal, their conversation will be still visible in the campaign, and they will be included in its statistics.

  • If a prospect receives at least one email and is assigned an ACTIVE or NONRESPONSIVE status, Woodpecker will change that status to REMOVED.

  • If a prospect receives at least one email and responds to it (status RESPONDED), sends an autoreply (AUTOREPLIED), unsubscribes, or opts out (OPT-OUT), their status won't change after removal.

  • Deleting prospects from the campaign will not change their current status in the Prospects database.

How does Inbox behave when you receive a reply from a deleted prospect?

If contact is removed from the campaign and you chose an option in Settings → Email Accounts, Woodpecker will download only emails connected with a prospect or a campaign.

If contact is removed from the main list of prospects and you chose an option in Settings → Email Accounts, Woodpecker will download only emails connected with a campaign and will not recognize new emails not connected with a campaign.


In case your prospect clicks the "Unsubscribe" link, their status will be changed to OPT-OUT and tag #UNSUBSCRIBED will be added. Use the same status when someone asks you to be removed from your contact list.
