MailChimp's campaign and Automation reports analyze clicks, opens, subscribers' social activity, e-commerce data, and more.
In this article, you'll learn where to find your campaign and automation reports and about our reporting features.
Find, View, and Access Campaign and Automation Reports
To view a report for an individual campaign or automation, follow the steps below.
- Navigate to the Reports page.
- Select the Campaigns or Automation tab at the top of the page, depending on what type of report you're looking for.
- Click the View Report button for the campaign or automation.
You can also view a campaign or automation report by navigating to the Campaigns or Automation page and selecting the View Report button for the sent campaign or automation.
Depending on the size of the list, open statistics can take between 15-30 minutes to update, while click and abuse stats should update in real time. Bounces are checked every minute, but can take longer to update when there is heavy traffic on MailChimp servers.
Campaign statistics are collected for as long as the list the campaign was sent to remains in the account.
The report Overview provides an at-a-glance look at how well a campaign performed: who received the campaign, when they opened it, what links they clicked, how many successful deliveries were made, and other information.
The Activity menu lets you drill down further into campaign results. Select one of the Activity menu options to view or export a segment of recipients that interacted with your campaign in a specific way such as opened or did not open, click performance, bounced, and others.
Activity can also be used to send targeted campaigns to specific portions of your list using MailChimp's powerful segmenting options.
The Links tab gives you a better idea of how well each tracked URL performed in the campaign. You'll find a list of the tracked URLs from your campaign and the number of total and unique clicks for each one. If you're viewing the report for a Regular, RSS, Automation, or A/B Testing Campaign, we also populate a click map to give you a visual representation of how each link performed.
The Social tab reveals who liked your campaign on Facebook, a list of the top influencers and referrers for the campaign, and a map of clicks from across the globe. Before we can add Facebook stats to your campaign reports, you need to integrate your account with Facebook.
- E-commerce reports
The E-Commerce tab provides a breakdown of each subscriber's purchases, so you can quickly identify which customers make a purchase and what they buy after they open your campaign. If your campaign includes products from multiple connected stores, you can filter the purchase data by each store.
The Conversations tab shows replies to your campaign when conversation tracking is enabled. Conversation tracking offers more flexibility than a standard reply-to email address, and allows other account users to receive email notifications when a subscriber replies to your campaign.
The Analytics360 tab displays Analytics 360 data when applicable, and integration statistics from services like Eventbrite or SurveyMonkey. We also show a breakdown of the top email domains for your subscribers under the Email domain performance chart.
- Inbox Preview,
These results are available from the report Overview if you've used those features for your campaign. Just click the headings to see the results for those in your campaign report.

My Campaign Results Aren't Right
If you find that your campaign results don't appear to be correct, here are some things to keep in mind.
- Open and click tracking must be turned on for those stats to populate.
- Emails can sometimes take a while to send and be received by all the ISPs and incoming servers.
- Campaign designs and subject lines should be created and written to encourage opens. For an open to be tracked, the recipient needs to enable image viewing in their own email account or click a tracked link in the campaign.
- Is the majority or are all of your recipients in your list at the same domain? It's possible the domain admin may be quarantining the message in their incoming spam filter.
My Campaign Results Seem Skewed
If the unsubscribes seem incorrect for this campaign, below are a few things to check for.
- Do you have any abuse complaints? When someone reports your email as spam, they are automatically unsubscribed and would count toward your opt-out or unsub total.
- They may have used the link on the unsubscribe confirmation email to sign back up. In this case, we would not note them as an unsubscribe on that particular campaign.
- The unsubscribe link may not have worked for that particular recipient due to some setting in their email program, in which case they'd be taken to the unsubscribe form, which would only show that unsubscribe when viewing the unsubscribes for the list.
