Lifecycle Optimizer Metrics

For each flow, Lifecycle Optimizer tracks and displays the number of times users have entered the flow, reached each step, and entered each branch after a check. Lifecycle Optimizer displays performance metrics for each Send action in the flow for Email, SMS, and Push/In-App messaging.

Journey Insights

View flow metrics within each step for a specified time period. All data on the flow list is presented in real time at page-load time and are calculated from the beginning of the flow. 

Display Flow Metrics

  1. Open an active Lifecycle Optimizer flow.
  2. From the left side of the Flow Builder, select the metrics icon .
  3. Use the date picker to select start and end dates.

  4. The metrics display at each step. When a step contains more than one number, you can hide or display them as needed.

Flow Metrics

Metrics overlay each step of the flow. For active flows the number of users who have reached the step will update in realtime. 

Note: Metrics are specific to the step. If you use the same template twice, each use of the template will display unique metrics. Changing a step’s template in an active flow will not reset the step’s metrics.

Metrics FAQ

  • If you deactivate a flow, its metrics will remain viewable. If you reactivate an inactive flow that previously ran and had users, the metrics will aggregate.
  • Opted out users deduct from the sends count, but the step count continues to increment
  • Setting a flow to inactive, adding a step, and reactivating it will persist metrics from the first activation. This can cause a high metric disparity between steps with the “original” version and the new version activated.
  • Journey Insights take into account the flow entry date, so displayed metrics are bound by your selected date range. 
  • The User Search function does not use the date entered for Journey Insights. It shows the latest path the selected user took.
