How can I manually test marketing automation effectiveness?

I recentely start to create or adapt existing marketing automation and I find them great(it remind me my time at uni when I was automating stuff with Matlab but that's another "life").

 

Unfortunately for what I see so far, there is a lack of:

 

- possibility to run them manually

- testing those automation if they do actually do what suppose to "automate"

 

Any experience on this 2 points?

Hi, yeah testing can be difficult for marketing automation. You might be able to test, but it depends on the trigger you are using...what is an example you want to test?
