In email settings you can set tracking level, add tags, choose message encoding and more. Mailing notes are not visible to contacts who receive the email.
You can choose one of four tracking levels, depending on what information you want to collect:
- To track everything down to the unique email address (including opens, clicks, forwards, and subscribes), select Unique.
- To collect grand totals on the tracking metrics, select Aggregate.
- To track only the opened mailings, select Opens Only.
- To track only information on bounces, select No Tracking.
Sent email are tracked when images in an email are downloaded and viewed. Campaign uses a 1x1 pixel that is placed in emails to determine whether it was opened. If images aren't viewed by the recipient, because they either block all images or receive a text-only email, then the tracking pixel isn't triggered and the email isn't tracked.
The third-party tracking pixel doesn't affect any reports when retrieved. Tracking behaves the same way as the tracking pixel.
Warning: Inserting a tracking pixel into the email may not work correctly with minified code.
