Added by Sequence VRS Manually Added

Once they receive an invitation to connect from you, they will be automatically added to the blocklist and classify them by Added by Sequence. This is how Kennected works in order to avoid reaching out to the same prospect twice. 

Manually Added are all profiles that you added following the previous steps.
