View an Email report

To view a report for an email campaign:

  1. Go to Analytics > Channel analytics > Reports: Email.
  2. Select the campaign you want to view the report for.

Headline tiles

At the top of the email report, there are four headline tiles which show the most relevant information in your report to give you an instant overview of your campaign's performance.

Where more information is available for a headline, a link to the full report appears when you hover over the tile.

The headline tiles show:

  • Most common email address domain.
  • Most common email client.
  • Click-to-open rate and a comparison to previous campaigns.
    The click-to-open rate is calculated as the total number of unique clicks divided by the total number of unique opens, given as a percentage. For example, imagine you sent your campaign to 100 contacts. Ten recipients opened it, and five of the ten openers clicked links. Therefore, your CTOR for that campaign is 5/10 x 100 = 50%.
  • Revenue
    The revenue generated by the campaign within the chosen date range. For campaigns with direct revenue, this is the figure that is displayed. If we have only attributed assisted revenue to the campaign, then this is the figure that is displayed.
    Assisted revenue is only available if you are using Advanced revenue attribution.

    Revenue report

    The View full report link from the revenue tile opens the Campaign revenue report. This report only displays revenue directly attributed to a campaign. It does not display assisted revenue. So, if the headline tile shows only assisted revenue, the Campaign revenue report will not display any data.
To learn how revenue attribution works, check out the article Revenue attribution.

Active email campaign banner

If contacts are still engaging and interacting with your campaign, we let you know by displaying a banner under the headline tiles.

We remove this message when the campaign becomes inactive - that's when no new opens or clicks have occurred for two days. If we detect any future activity, we display the message again, and the two-day inactivity limit restarts.

Non-human activity campaign banner

To learn more, check out the article Filter non-human activity from your email campaign reports.

Email campaign details

Under the heading Campaign details you can see general information about your campaign. Quickly check details such as the subject line, the address books you sent your campaign to, and the last date you sent your campaign.

  • ReMails
    If your campaign is a ReMail, the address books in the Sent to field will be preceded by Non-openers re-mailed for campaign.
  • Deleted address books
    If you sent your campaign to an address book that has since been deleted, that address book in the Sent to field will have a line through it and you won’t be able to select it.
  • Dynamic content
    An orange bolt icon means your campaign includes dynamic content. Hover over this bolt to see the dynamic content.

Delivery report

Under the heading Delivery report you can see statistics about the people receiving your campaign. The Delivered metric refers to the number of inboxes that a campaign reached.

To find out why we couldn't deliver a campaign, select Soft bounced, Hard bounced, or Skipped to view the full report for that metric.

Engagement

The Engagement section includes data about campaign opens.

Opens map

The heat map in the Opens map section shows you the areas of the world where your email campaign was last opened.

Location attribution in the opens map

Locations plotted on the map are based on IP address. Therefore, a skewed location can occur if:

  • a contact is connected to the server through a VPN; the IP of the VPN server will be used in place of the user's physical location.
  • a dynamic IP address is assigned by the contact's ISP; two different IP addresses can be generated for the same contact over time, for example, an IP assigned to a device in London today may show as Edinburgh tomorrow.
  • a spam filter and/or security software has clicked links and/or downloaded images in your campaign to ensure content quality, thus recording the IP of the filter or software instead of the contact's IP.
  • images that are automatically displayed within a campaign are cached and served by a proxy server.

Interaction

Under the heading Interaction, you can see data about campaign clicks.

Hover over a tile to display a link to the full report for that metric, where there is one.

Top links and clicks

The Top links and clicks section shows more information about the most popular links in your campaign. The Clicks metric includes the number of links clicked more than once by the same recipient.

Click reporting data is only available for tracked links. Data for non-trackable links does not display.

Non-trackable links include system links like View in browser or Unsubscribe, mailto links, and phone number links. The reason for this is that these links do not redirect a user through your sending domain, which is the mechanism used to track interaction.

Split tests

If your campaign was a split test, the Split test results section includes details about the winning split test and the losing split test.

To learn more about split tests, check out the article Split test an email campaign.

  2. Choose a new date.

To change the send time for the ReMail:

  1. Select Send on.
  2. Edit the time.
  3. Select the checkmark.
