There are times when you may want to verify that NS8 is receiving and parsing your campaign data appropriately. This testing can be easily performed using a sample UTM text string:
Add this text string to the end of a webpage in the domain where you have NS8 installed.
For example, if you have NS8 installed on www.wudly.com, enter www.wudly.com/?utm_source=NS8&utm_medium=testing&utm_campaign=NS8ProtectTest into your browser.
When you log into NS8, you will see your visit on any relevant screens with the following fields populated:
The Campaign Activity page will show your visits to the website with the appropriate testing data. To filter these tests from your data when doing analysis, set a filter like "Medium 'not equal to' testing" or "Campaign 'not equal to' NS8ProtectTest." You can substitute the parameters in the test string above with other values as needed.
