Start automation as soon as someone clicks on button


I want to send out an email campaign and start an automation when somebody clicks on a button in that campaign. I know this is possible with the wait function and then check if someone has clicked, but I want to do this as soon as someone clicks on it.

Is there a way to do this? With Goals perhaps?
Does someone have a visual example, like a screenshot of such a setup?


What’s wrong with using Wait (until specific conditions are met i.e. clicked on link xyz which is your button link) ? It does exactly what you want i.e. as soon as someone clicks on it.

There can be some long delays on this, for reasons I don’t understand. Several minutes… How does the “polling” happen, i.e. how often does AC poll a contact to see if a tag exists or not?
