Multichannel Analytics

You have the ability to see how your internal Multichannel posts are performing and resonating with your audience using analytics. You can access analytics for individual posts as well as overall analytics.

You need "Access Multichannel Studio" permissions to view the analytics. The Multichannel analytics data is updated at least every few hours.

View individual post analytics

You can see analytics for a specific post by opening a post's mini preview in the Calendar tab. The mini preview displays data on an individual post's reach and read confirmation. To view more detailed analytics for the post, select a box in the mini preview to open the post detail dashboard.

The metrics that Haiilo measures and shows for the selected post in the individual post analytics are detailed below.

    • The Reach metric is defined as the number of users from the post's selected audience who saw it. One view per user is counted; if a user sees the post 5 times, it is counted as 1 reach.

A post's reach, visits, and visitors can exceed 100%. This can happen when there are new user subscriptions to a page or target audience after the post is published or if a user in moderator mode who was not part of the initial target audience views a post. In these cases, the reach, visits, and visitors data increases, resulting in a percentage that exceeds 100%.

View overall analytics

You can see the overall analytics for your internal posts from Studio > Analytics. By default, the timeframe is set to Last 7 days and the content type to Internal posts (Multichannel posts).

You can use a predetermined timeframe or select a week, month, or year. The timeframe counts from the previous day backward and doesn't consider the current day.

Under the tiles, you can see a list of the posts published during the selected period and analytics for them. Select any row to open the individual post analytics for a post.
