A/B Test Sends

A/B Test Sends contain the reporting metrics for AB Test Sends.  An A/B Test Send report is generated as soon as the email begins sending.  The metrics will update as the email sends and during the retry process.

When first accessing A/B Test Sends, you will initially see the reporting manager.  The reporting manager provides the reporting metric for the winning subject line test.  To access the reporting metrics for all tests, click on the name of the mailing.


The Summary tab provides the basic reporting metrics for test sends, the winning subject line send, and an aggregate total.  The test sends are identified by a letter and the winning send is identified by a star. To access the Email Ticket report for the individual sends, please click on the name of the email.
