This article will guide store owners to figure out the reason behind the sudden drop in sent emails from automation via Omnisend and provide the solution to this problem. This problem seems to occur frequently where Omnisend stops responding to Rush events and we’re here to help you fix it.
Rush Growth plan
The problem starts when the drop looks something like this:
The drop in the image above means event discard. In simple terms, Omnisend refuses to use Rush events. Rush is constantly monitoring its services, so when something like this happens, the customer support team at Rush will contact you. Currently, there is no other way to verify if Omnisend is refusing Rush events clearly on the Omninsed UI.
Omnisend API applies a strict property type policy on their data. So, if a property is auto-matched incorrectly to a different type, the events will be discarded when the property later is matched correctly. The highlighted property in the image below should be marked string not integer.
After the problem is fixed, it looks like this:
The example is checking this field specifically, but it can be other fields as well.

Delete all Rush events by clicking on the Delete button located at the top right corner of the UI.
