Email Summary

See the engagement of your campaigns and triggered sends over time with Email Summary. Located in the Analytics menu under Email, this report offers a consolidated view of all your sends within your Sailthru configuration.

The Report

View aggregate data for your email sends. Locate the Email Summary report in the my.sailthru Analytics menu, under Email.

The report is broken up into three main sections, numbered in the following image.

  1. Headline Metrics
  2. Configuration Options
  3. Charts

Note: Reporting is about 3-6 hours lagged from real-time. As data comes in, it is updated continuously.

Headline Metrics

This section includes numerical and percentage data for your email sends over a specified time. By default, you will see the Open rate, Click Through Rate (CTR), Pageviews, Optout rate, Unsubscribes, and Email revenue for a one month period. To change the Headline Metrics, see Email Summary Settings.

Configuration Options

Change settings and filter your report data for a granular view of your messaging performance.

Email Summary Settings

Change your report settings from the Analytics Settings modal. Select the gear icon next to the date picker to open the modal. From this screen, select:

  1. Metric window days: Set a lookahead time window for your metrics.
  2. Headline metrics: Determine which metrics are displayed in the headline bar. Your selection provides a default rate or absolute value display in the charting below the headline bar.

View by Date

Use the date picker to select your custom date range. Select a single date or view data over time.

Message Filtering

So you can keep your email summary view organized, all filters are behind the filter icon . Click the icon to open filter options and select the type of message you wish to view.

Filter by Campaign

If you select Campaigns, more filter options are available.

Selecting either Lists or Labels shows the search options.

  

Either type the list or label name into the search box or scroll through your available lists or labels using the dropdown menu. Select one or multiple lists or labels to compare performance on a specific date or over time.

Filter by Triggered Message

Selecting Triggered Messages from the filter options gives the option to filter by label or by Lifecycle Optimizer flow.

Selecting Labels or LO Flows opens further filtering options.

.

Type the label or flow name in the Select box or use the drop-down menu to scroll through the available labels or flows. Select a single label or flow to see the performance over time, or select more to compare performance.

Table View

View message metrics as charts or in a table view. When you select the filter icon and set the filtered message type to Campaigns or Triggered, more configuration options are available.

Select Table to switch to table view:

Within the table, you can click on any of the column titles to sort by that column.

If you keep the filter options open, you can filter the table by list as you can the charts:

 

List Removals

If this feature and metric is enabled on your account, you will see a column in the Campaigns table view for List Removals. A List Removal occurs when a user unsubscribes from a specific list associated to a Campaign send by clicking the email service’s unsubscribe link. The email service then sends this information to Sailthru in a feedback loop, which Sailthru then parses where a customer manages multiple brands in one Sailthru instance.

Email Summary Metrics

Name Description
Emails sent Count of the number of emails sent for the corresponding Campaign or Triggered send in the time period selected.
Opens Defined as the count of emails opened, where a beacon event was captured by Sailthru systems. Excludes inferred opens, which are counted when Sailthru does not detect a beacon event but captures a click event after the email send.
Open rate Defined as explicit opens divided by emails sent for a given campaign/triggered send during the date range selected.
Clicks Defined as the count of clicks per user for corresponding Campaign or Triggered sends that fall within the date range specified.

Delivery rate Defined as the count of emails sent minus bounces, divided by emails sent. Bounces include hardbounces and softbounces.
Pageviews Defined as the number of pageviews generated by clickthroughs from a  Campaign or Triggered send. The Sailthru Javascript library generally needs to be implemented for this metric to render a non-zero value.
