In-app message reporting

This reference article covers in-app message reporting and analytics including campaign details, message performance, and historical performance.

Campaign Analytics

Once you’ve launched your campaign, you can return to the details page for that campaign to view key metrics. Navigate to the Campaigns page and select your campaign to open the details page. For in-app messages sent in Canvas, refer to Canvas Analytics.

From the Campaign Analytics tab, you can view your reports in a series of panels. You may see more or less than those listed in the sections below, but each has its own useful purpose.

Campaign Details

The Campaign Details panel shows a high-level overview of the entire performance for your in-app message.

Review this panel to see overall metrics such as how many messages have been sent to how many recipients, the primary conversion rate, and the total revenue generated by this message. You can also review your general settings from this page: Delivery Settings, Audience Settings, and Conversion Settings.

In Canvas, you’ll see in-app message performance mapped onto the Canvas you’ve created. You can use the control panel at the top of the page to clear other messaging types (channels) and only view the in-app messages in your Canvas.

Message Performance

The Message Performance panel outlines how well your message has performed across various dimensions. The metrics in this panel vary depending on your chosen messaging channel, and whether or not you are running a multivariate test. You can click on the Preview icon to view your message for each variant or channel.
