Help OFF

M1 (Help On) = On E1 (Help On) MOVE this audience member from Help OFF to Help ON
M2 (Help Off) = On E2 (Help Off) MOVE this audience member from Help ON to Help OFF

Example Content:

Note that because you can modify the email footers to be group-specific, the Help ON footer might remind the audience that they have Help On and hence encourage them to turn it off.

And remember that a trigger can be linked to several piece of content or actions. So, you might have a standard reply to everyone and then a delayed email to only those in the Help ON group.
