Comparative Reports

Today, we’ll focus on Comparative Reports, a feature that allows you to aggregate and compare your campaign results, create advanced segments within your reports, and schedule recurring reports to share with your colleagues or clients.

Creating a Comparative Report

You can create and share your Comparative Report in 4 easy steps:
  1. Choose a list and campaigns. To get started, you’ll select a list and choose the Regular or RSS campaigns you want to compare. You can also filter campaigns by folder, keyword, timeframe, or send date. Keep in mind that Automation emails and multivariate campaigns are not available in Comparative Reports.

  2. Generate your baseline. After selecting your campaigns, we’ll generate the baseline performance of your campaign. The baseline is calculated using the aggregated performance data across all the campaigns you’ve selected.

  3. Dig deeper with segments. Add advanced segments to your Comparative Report to see how specific portions of your subscriber base engage with your campaigns over time.

  4. Share your report with Snapshots. Once your Comparative Report has been created, finalize it and generate a Snapshot. A Snapshot is a static overview of your report that can be automatically scheduled, shared, or exported. Each time you run a report, we'll present a Snapshot of campaign performance data up until that point.
