Full Story

Search lets you identify employees based on their data(Country, Role, Business Unit) within the Poppulo system. Metric Search lets you identify People based on reporting related data such as opens, clicks and survey results helping to make your search results more contextualised. Metric Search results can be tagged and used when sending your communications. Saved Searches are preferred when sending regularly to groups of People, as Metric Search results(e.g. People who did not open an Email) are rarely used more than once, we recommend using Tags to group Metric Search results.

For instance, if you want to communicate with the employees who did not open your most recent Email, you can use Metric Search to locate them. Then, Tags People in the search results and send to the Tag. Use the instructions below to run a Metric Search.
