Can someone provide a best practice when using a stream to exclude internal employees (Seed List) from not appearing in your reports so that your open and click through rates are not skewwed by them.
Others' approaches will vary but I prefer to use a segmentation.
Another advantage of segs here is that if you *really* want to stop click tracking for internal users you can use Velocity scripts to conditionally output non-tracked links for that subset.
Of course not sending to these folks at all is best (except for one QA address, say).
thank you very much, I haven't created a velocity script yet but will take a run at it! Thanks for the advice.
The Velocity "comment token" pattern could be used here, too: http://blog.teknkl.com/just-in-time-content-suppression-with-a-comment-token/
(You'd check segment membership directly instead of checking individual fields as in that post.)
When developing a landing page, email campaign, etc. you may want to have a testing "stage" where you do all internal testing, etc. Once complete, clone the resource and start fresh.
