Jenny was thrilled that you found an idea that enabled her to set up the additional campaigns and journeys that Steve dreamed up, while also letting her leverage some smart controls for how many messages each individual received.

Her predecessor set up some basic frequency caps around how many general push notifications and emails a user could get on a given day, but Jenny’s research inspired her to take things one step further.
