The Touchpoint Settings section of your Marketo Measure app allows you to set rules that will suppress or remove touchpoints from your Marketo Measure data and related systems. These rules can help you to isolate certain sets of data that do not need to be represented in your Buyer touchpoint data or that you don’t want to receive attribution credit without disturbing your tracking and data collection.
Touchpoint Removal means Marketo Measure will purge (i.e. remove) any Touchpoints from your CRM that fit the rule criteria. The data can be reported on within the Marketo Measure ROI Dashboard (Discover), but not appear in the CRM. Commonly used to alleviate stress on your data storage limits within your CRM
Touchpoint Suppression is similar to Touchpoint Removal, but the data CANNOT be reported on within the ROI Dashboard. Any touchpoints that are suppressed will not be accessible in the CRM or Discover. Suppression will ensure that your CRM data and your Discover data will match. Commonly used to fine tune and further specify which touchpoint data you want to receive attribution credit.
In your Marketo Measure app, the Touchpoint Settings section will be broken out into four key sections. Each section suppresses or removes a different set of data. Use the key below to ensure your rules are suppressing or removing the desired touchpoints.
