This article shows how to add or update a seed list within a campaign scenario. You can modify seed lists when creating or editing a campaign.
Where to find the seed lists?
- To edit a campaign, find it in the list and click on the pencil icon.
- Or, within a campaign, click on the "Tools" button and select "Edit".
- Go to the "Campaign scenario" tab. If editing is disabled, click "Continue editing".
- Now, open the action to edit its settings.
The seed list panel
In the action, go to "Population".
Enter seed email addresses in the field indicated.
Always make sure that the addresses you enter exist in the database!
Remember your seed list
To save your seed list, check the "Remember this list" option. Splio will use the addresses you entered as the default seed list for future campaigns. If you want to modify this seed list, you just need to change the addresses and click again on "Remember this list".
Seed list behavior
Contacts from a seed list are processed within a scenario as regular recipients (e.g., they can be randomly selected for control group or receive one branch of an A/B test) with one exception: they will receive mail even if in blacklist or in the exclusion list for the campaign.
Contacts that are present in the seed list but are not included in the population of the campaign (list, filter, group...) will NOT be counted in the overall stats. Example: if you are in the seed list but not in the filter of the campaign and open an email, you will not be counted as an opener.
