Grouping campaigns together using tags

Overview

Adding a tag, or tags, to your campaigns allows you to filter your campaigns in reports and listings.

For example, tagging appropriate campaigns with 'Newsletters' will enable you to filter by that tag and gain a clear view of how just your newsletters are performing in your account reports.

You can also add more than one tag to campaigns in order to be able to filter by multiple tags in account reports (for instance, tagging with 'Newsletters' and 'Quarterly newsletters').

Plus you can filter by an individual tag in your campaign listings and email reports.

Setting up a tag and filtering

  1. Select Campaigns from the navigation bar
  2. Select either the Unsent or Sent tab, as appropriate
  3. Using the checkboxes in the first column, select the campaign(s) you wish to group

    If you wish to create another campaign tag, select Select another tag. This will take you to the Add a tag screen again and you can repeat the previous process.

    Any existing campaign tags already assigned to your selected campaigns will be listed in the 'Manage tags' panel, stating the number of campaigns each tag is already assigned to.

    Tags can be removed from campaigns by selecting the red cross.

    If you select multiple campaigns before selectingManage campaign tags, the Manage tags panel gives you the option to Add to all (it looks like a blue cross). This attaches any attached tags from your selection to every campaign in your selection.

    Select Apply to confirm the assignment or removal of a tag or tags.

  10. To filter the view of your campaigns, select the Date range: in the top right of your screen and select Filter by tag:. Use the drop-down menu to select the group you wish to view, then select Apply. The Campaign's list filters based upon your selection.
