Sending multiple stages in a sequence as a thread
When sending a sequence with multiple stages you can choose to send each stage as an independent email or as a reply.
To send as a new, independent email click the slider button to No next to Send email “As a reply” in the top right corner of your second (or subsequent) stage email. This means the email will show up as a brand new email in your recipient’s inbox.
To send as a reply, click the slider button to Yes next to Send email “As a reply” in the top right corner of your second (or subsequent) stage email.
When you send sequence stages as a reply, emails will appear as an email thread in your recipient’s inbox. This will also add “Re:” to the subject line.
When your recipient replies to the email, their response will appear above the body of both/all of the emails sent in the sequence. Gmail will trim this content when recipients compose their reply, but it can be expanded by clicking the three dots at the bottom of the compose window.
