Reports

  • The Bulletin Activity Report contains robust data on what happens with your bulletins after they've been sent. Because this powerful analytics tool is now available to all accounts, the Bulletin History Report has been retired. All sent bulletins and activity around those bulletins can be found in the details tab of the Bulletin Analytics Report. (1008)
  • In the PDF export of the Account Performance Report, formatting changes were added to allow for text wrapping. The text that describes "New Subscriptions" in the Topic Activity section has bee updated to reflect "Net Change in Subscriptions". (4386)
  • In the Key Metrics section of the Account Performance Report, the text that describes "New Subscribers" and "New Subscriptions" was updated to reflect "Net Change in Subscribers" and "Net Change in Subscriptions". (4378)
