What is the End Node?

The End node in automations is a crucial element that marks the completion of an automation. It plays a key role in tracking the number of contacts that have fully completed the automation process.

Why Use the End Node?

  • The End node helps to ensure that the Contact finishes the current Automation. It might be helpful if you send this Contact to another Automation and want to stop the execution of the existing one for this Contact. Why? When a Contact is sent to another Automation, it doesn't leave the original Automation, it just changes the status and is copied to another one.

  • Signifies Completion: The End node indicates that the automation has been fully executed for the contacts that reach this node. This is essential for accurately monitoring the progress and effectiveness of your automation.

How to Add an End Node:

  1. Navigating to the End of Your Automation:

    • When you are at the final stage of setting up your automation, click on the plus button to add a new node.

  2. Selecting the End Node:

    • In the window that appears on the right, scroll down until you find the 'End Node'.

    • Click on the 'End Node', and then select 'Create' to add it to your automation.


  • If you create an End node before other nodes, they will be deleted and the Contacts that were on those nodes will acquire the status 'failed'. So it's better to create the End nodes from the very beginning.

  • Each Automation is hardcoded to have at least one End-node, so the last End node in the Automation can't be deleted.
