There are 2 common questions we get regarding Visitor Filters:

Q. How do I keep my activity from skewing the campaign reporting?

A. Filter yourself out. You can filter by IP address (find yours here) or by your domain (example: cloudontapsc.com). This way your frequent website visits and clicks won’t track and exaggerate your Campaign results. The only thing you need to keep in mind is the flip side of this coin, question 2 below.

Q. Why am I not receiving notifications when testing a form?

A. Take the filter off. If you had previously setup a visitor filter for your IP address or domain, your activity is being filtered. Whenever we hear someone isn’t receiving notifications for form testing, the first place to check is their Visitor Filters.

We call that a Maritza explanation- Short and Sweet.
