The message activity report allows you to view analytics for messages the broadcast (full list or filtered sends) email messages. Only the messages on the list you are currently viewing will appear in the report. Viewable data includes activity such as opens, reads, and clicks.

💡 The Message Activity Report displays metrics for message sent during the specified date range. Learn more about specifying the range in the filtering section below.

The Message Activity report can be found under Analytics > Message Analytics Message Activity.

Filtering Options

When navigating the Message Activity Report you can update the scope of data by filtering by date, merchant, or using the comparison tool. Click Update after you select your settings to update the dashboard.

Date Range

Use the pre-built date range from the dropdown or use calendar icon to select a specific date range. The pre-built date ranges will dynamically update the data when you return to the dashboard.

📌 Pre-built dynamic ranges are useful when scheduling exports.

Comparison Tool

The comparison tool allows you to compare revenue and other metrics from two separate date ranges. By default the comparison is set to none, or you can select from two additional options.

  • None: Displays the data from the currently selected date range

  • Previous Period: Compares the currently selected number of days to the same number of days directly before the current period. E.g.: Last 7 days compared to days 8-14.

  • Previous Year: Compares the currently selected date range to the same date range the previous year

⚠️ Only Listrak email data will appear on the Message Activity Dashboard. If Listrak was not active during the comparison timeframe the data will be compared to zero.

📌 Use the comparison tools to help comp holiday year-over-year.
