Campaign reporting refresh

With our new and improved campaign reports, it’s now simpler to view campaign results, understand key email metrics and translate them into actionable insights for future campaigns.

You may notice some changes to your email metrics as a result of Apple Mail Privacy Protection, so we’ve increased the visibility of metrics that aren’t impacted, such as click rate and delivery rate.

Apple Mail Privacy Protection

Apple recently launched Mail Privacy Protection, which impacts how open rates are measured for Apple device users. This means open rates and click-to-open rates (CTOR) may become less reliable.

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

We’ve made some improvements in Campaign Monitor to help you navigate these changes.

To give you the most reliable measure of email engagement, we’ve replaced CTOR with click rate on the Campaign and Overview pages in the Clicked column. You can still pop open a view of your CTOR from the Clicked column.

MPP has just been released, so we’re still testing and studying the impacts. We will have further updates for you once we have more information.

New Overview Page

We’ve improved the overview page to make it easier to view, create and manage campaigns, lists and automations. The new page gives you a bird’s-eye view of all your email activity, which is especially helpful when you have multiple team members working on different campaigns.

The new improvements include:

  • A modern layout: there’s now less scrolling required to see all your important info. Plus new thumbnails so you can easily identify and differentiate your campaigns
  • Shortcuts: hover over a sent or draft campaign to quickly preview or copy. Hover over a scheduled campaign to cancel send. Now you don’t need to spend time flicking between pages to make these edits
  • New ‘create’ button: create a new campaign, list or automation straight from this page to save you time
  • Recent lists: we’ve added a summary of recent lists on this page to make it easy to jump straight into editing your subscribers 

Here’s what one of our customers had to say about the new page:

The changes are fabulous and it’s so much easier to access recently uploaded lists. The thumbnails make it visually easier to identify and find campaigns.

Bulk delete lists

Select multiple lists at once and delete them in bulk, rather than having to remove them one-by-one. Just hover over a list and tick the checkbox for the lists you want to delete.

This is a big timer saver that will help minimise list quantity. We recommend maintaining a small number of lists with useful segments rather than a large number of lists, as this is the best way to track subscriber engagement over time and compare results between different subscriber groups.
