I found a tip on here to add a delay of 999 weeks at the end of a visual automation so I can leave it active and go back later to add another step to the automation (see screenshot). My question is whether this is necessary...could I just add another step to the sequence and everyone moves through it? Next, if it is, how I go about adding something later? I'm currently taking pre-orders for a course that's releasing on the 21st. I have a pre-order sequence and then on the 21st, everyone will get pulled to the regular purchase sequence. I put in the 999 week delay to keep them active so that in the future when I release something these people might be interested in buying, I can add another sequence selling them the new thing. But where do I add that new sequence? I'm assuming they will show as "# subscribers waiting here" but I'm not sure how to get them to move on when I'm ready. I marked on my screenshot my two best guesses of how I do it, but I'd love an official answer rather than having to experiment and see what happens! Thanks!

Hi Robin, looking at your screenshot you can leave the 999 weeks under the sequence. But if you plan to add more emails within the sequence make sure you have this sequence settings, so that the subscriber will not be marked as completed under the sequence and will still receive the new emails added:
