The Overview on the 'Reports' drop-down displays a range of key metrics, including Opened by and Clicked by your communication.
Opened by versus Clicked by
Opened by represents the total number of people who have opened the communication in their email browser or device at least once since it was sent.
Clicked by represents the total number of people who have clicked on an item within the email at least once (clicks from both the email and the microsite are measured).
The numbers, in the red boxes below, denotes the number of individuals that have opened or clicked at least once. Clicking the number itself will display the email address of each employee to complete that action.
Note: You may see "Opened by (estimated)" in your Mailing Results. This is calculated by adding an estimate to the Opens for those who read the email but did not download any images or click any links. (For example, some email clients will have images blocked.)
What exactly qualifies as an Open?
We calculate open rates in one of two ways:
- Real Open
If images are blocked and the reader clicks the tracking image on the top of the email (to Load or Download Images).
If the images are automatically unblocked on the email and the reader opens it then this also sends a message to our server telling us it's a 'Real Open'.
- Inferred Open
|Real opens + Inferred opens = Who Opened|
Both 'Real' and 'Inferred Opens' contribute to the total 'Who Opened' figure.
What’s the difference between ‘Total Clicks’ and ‘Who Clicked’?
Who Clicked is the total number of individuals that clicked on the specific link or article at least once.
Total Clicks is the total number of times that a specific link or article has been clicked by any of the People that received your communication.
