What Is Impression Tracking by Job Report

The Impression Tracking by Job report shows the performance of an Impression Region for a single send (or job). The report shows the number of times the content area was sent as part of a job (i.e., number of impressions) and the link performance for links found within the impression region. This report also contains the overview tracking summary for the send. Only emails that use dynamic content or AMPscript can be tracked using these reports. 


You must be set up as an administrator to run this report.
