What is the best practice to exit successful leads from an engagement program (EP)? I haven't been able to find an answer to this question anywhere - not in the docs or the forums.

 

For example, let's say my success criterion is an opportunity created. I have a smart list within the EP that watches out for that and then changes the lead's program status to "Success"/"Engaged"/etc. How do I then "exit" this lead from the EP altogether, in other words, let Marketo know it's all good on this lead, no need to go further? I know removing the lead is bad because stats will be lost. So should I:

  1. Pause lead in program
  2. Put lead into an empty stream within the same EP
  3. 1 AND 2
  4. Neither 1 nor 2, but another best practice solution?

 

Thank you!
