We have been tracking MQL's using change in prospect stage, but amended this method due to Marketo's data archive process. So I wanted to pose this question to the community: How are you tracking MQL's? What's the best way?

Our old method:
Analytics Report - Track leads created in all time, grouped by created date. Smart list includes only leads whose Prospect Stage was changed to MQL from a value other than MQL in the past month.

The above data is archived (for the most part) after 90 days so we lose a lot of historical data.

New method:
I created a new field called "Most Recent MQL Date." When a lead goes through the Create MQL lead routing campaign, this field is set to {{}}

Analytics report - Track leads created in all time, grouped by Most Recent MQL date.

This has only been running a few months, so historical data is lost.

Curious if anyone is running an alternative tracking method!
