Are tests run via the app saved in my Litmus account?

Which email clients can I test via the app?
The client configuration within the app mirrors the selection in your main Litmus account. This can be changed at any time by navigating to the ‘client configuration’ menu either from the Litmus app in Eloqua, or Litmus itself. To access client configuration from Eloqua, Open the app options by clicking on the drop-down arrow in the top-left of the Limtus Eloqua app and select 'Client Selection'.

Who gets access to the app when it is installed?
The app and authorization of Litmus are provided on a ‘per user’ basis. This means that all team members will need to add the app to their own instance of Eloqua, and then use their Litmus credentials to sign in to the app in order to run tests.
What information is passed between Litmus and Eloqua?
When connecting the app you grant permission for Litmus to access your Eloqua account systematically. However, Litmus only uses the connection to get the content of the email you are currently trying to test against when you enable tests via the app. Specifically, Litmus gets the HTML and subject line of the email being worked on. No other information that is stored anywhere within your Eloqua account is sent to Litmus.
In addition, no information is passed from Litmus account to Eloqua other than the results of the email content test that has been requested.
Can the Litmus Email Previews app be used with Eloqua’s Design Editor?
Due to limitations of Eloqua’s API not providing a full email, previews created in Eloqua’s Design Editor (i.e. WYSIWYG, drag-and-drop) will exclude the headers and footer, only rendering the email body. Advanced CSS styling is not supported.
