We understand that it’s very difficult to test Chimpegration with dummy data, here are some suggestions for how you could try out the functionality without touching your live data.
- Create a list of staff and export their records into an Audience with a tag (note, you cannot add fake email addresses to Mailchimp)
- Send a test email to that group, have some links to click, have some unsubscribe etc.
- Work through your processes for all sent, opened, clicked, unsubscribed, bounced. You may wish to try more than one option. Try out some scheduled or realtime actions.
- Check the results, check again.
It is also recommended that you create processes in adherence to this User Guide and make logical decisions when setting up your processes. Failure to do so might result in you getting unexpected results.
