2. Use the Filters panel to narrow the interactions that you see at the bottom of the page.  You can filter by Date, Activity Type, Status, Owner, Tags (Applied to Activity), Outlet (Associated with Activity).

NOTES: Any filters that are applied in this area will reflect in your Export. The ‘Failed’ filter choice under Status will include emails in which the send failed.  While this is extremely rare, this filter will enable you to clearly identify emails that have not sent properly.

3. All interactions will show in this panel by default unless you apply filters. Many of the columns in this panel contain links that can be used to learn more about the Campaign, Media Contact,  or Media Outlet associated with the Activity or Interaction. By default, 5,000 Activities will show in this panel at a time.  If you need to see more than 5,000 Activities at a time in the panel, please contact Customer Care here.

To use the keyword search, enter a word, phrase enclosed in quotations, or a combination of words and phrases connected using simple Boolean Terms. Boolean Terms accepted by this field are OR, AND, and AND NOT all of which must be capitalised when used.
