Random Control Group

Hello,

I currently learning Pardot Engagement Studio and I am looking to automate a Monthly Newsletter.

- Can you show me how to set up a random control group (10% ideally) for each of the lists that I have in my automation? This is for analysis purposes.
- Also, I would want to set up a different scheduled time of the send for each of the email steps corresponding to the region of the users/members.

Please let me know how to these in Pardot.

Thanks

Dax

I love the idea of control groups. 
You can use tags for example or segment the lists themselves

Hi Dax, how did you go around it?

Hi Ines. 

Thanks for the reply. No action on this yet. As far as I know, Pardot does not have the capability to do a regional send from a single automation setup that is to send globally. It's looking like that Email Studio or the larger Marketing Studio might have this. With regards to control groups, I can go via splitting the list. However, the lists will be static. So for me to have the most up-to-date (suppressions, opt-outs applied), I will need to split the list (control & target) minutes or within an hour before sending out the email. This is okay for single send but for automated ones that you might want a 10% control every time it email sends, it will not do.
