Ontraport Systems
Last updated on: June 27, 2023

Ontraport Systems is a tool you can use to create, maintain and organize the marketing and business assets in your account.

Think of the systems as folders in your account where you can store all of your related assets so you can stay organized, make quick edits and get an overview of your system’s performance.

Enable/disable Ontraport Systems

Ontraport Systems are an optional organizational tool for your account, and if you’d like to disable this feature your account will continue to function normally.

  2. Toggle on/off Systems.

Once you pick your system, you’ll need to complete all of the steps below before it’s installed in your account.

    • You can always click the back arrow to go back a step.
  4. When you complete all the steps in the Setup Wizard, click Finish on the “Publish your system” step to install your assets.
  5. Once your system assets are installed, click View system to go to your system’s notes to learn more about your system, how it works and any next steps you may be interested in.
    • To come back to this page, click Notes from inside your system.

When you create a new system, you’ll start on your asset overview page. From there you will see at least five tabs (if you have custom objects set up in your account you’ll also see those here), and each tab has sections to add your system’s assets.

Here’s what you can add in each section:


  • Email
  • Automations
  • Tasks
  • Forms
  • SMS
  • Postcards (if enabled)
  • Sequences (if enabled)
  • Rules (if enabled)
