it's often easier and faster to clone a program in use than to clone the generic template because of customized filters, tokens, etc. However if I clone a program that contains a static list, then all the list members are also cloned in my new program. I have then 2 choices : either I delete the list (but that means cleasing all filters that contain the list name) or I can empty the list. I almost always do the later.
But I'm encountering 2 issues:
- I sometime forgot to check if list contains members and to remove them so this can screw my reporting if I don't notice this fast enough
- if I have a report on "was added to list", the members that have been cloned are still counted (even if I have removed them from the list)
So my question is: how do you proceed? Are you experiencing the same issue? Do you have a work-around?
thanks Dan. I have now voted for idea. So I guess there is no ideal work-around...
We now have a template library of pre-built programs that our teams must clone from (which, of course, has no leads within any of the static lists).
