The sequence reports page is a great resource with valuable statistics. 

In this article, we’ll go over the meanings of all the numbers provided on this page.

First things first: go to Sequences under the Send tab in the navigation and click the sequence whose stats you want to get. Then, click into the Reports page at the top of the screen here:

Now we’re ready to dive in!

Overview

You’ll notice that the Reports page is divided into two main sections: the sidebar, and the per-email stats on the main body of the page:

We’ll go over each section in more detail below. The main distinction to understand is that the stats in the sidebar are more global, whereas the per-email stats are specific to those individual emails only.

The sidebar

Unconfirmed

This is the total number of subscribers who are unconfirmed in this sequence. This means that you have double opt-in enabled on your email form, and these subscribers have not clicked the confirmation button in the incentive email that was sent to them to confirm their subscription.

Subscribers

This is the total number of subscribers who are active in your sequence.

Completed

If a subscriber gets added to a sequence via a visual automation, they will receive the "Completed" status once they finish the sequence. Once subscribers are marked as "Completed" for a sequence, they will not receive any further emails from that sequence.

NOTE: The "Completed" status is applicable to only subscribers who had been added via a visual automation. If the subscriber had been added to the sequence either manually or via an automation rule, then they will still be considered "active" on the sequence even after reaching the end. 

As a result, subscribers added to a sequence either manually or via an automation rule will continue to receive any additional emails added to the end of the sequence. This is so long as any new emails being added come after the last email they received within the sequence, and not before that point.

Subscribers added to a sequence via a visual automation will not receive any additional emails added to the end of the sequence unless you hold them in an evergreen sequence.

Removed

The number of subscribers that were taken out of this sequence, either because they were pulled out by an automation or because of a bulk action.

Unsubscribers

This is the total number of subscribers who have been removed from this sequence, for one of the following reasons:

  • They unsubscribed from your list via an email in the sequence

  • The unsubscribed from your list via another email sent from your ConvertKit account (such as a broadcast, or an email in a different sequence)

  • They were deleted or otherwise removed from your ConvertKit account

You can click on any of the the above 4 categories on the sidebar of the Reports page to view the list of the specific subscribers who fall under each. You are also able to download a CSV file containing the active subscribers and/or unsubscribers from this sequence using the links provided.

Open rate

The average open rate percentage for all emails in this sequence.

Click rate

The average click rate percentage for all emails in this sequence.

Emails overview

Open rate

The open rate percentage for this specific email.

Click rate

The click rate percentage for this specific email.

Sends

The number of subscribers this email has been sent to.

Unsubscribers

The number of subscribers who have unsubscribed from your list via this particular email.

NOTE: If you add up the total unsubscribers in this column, it may be less than the total number of unsubscribers displayed on the sidebar. This is to be expected, because the total number of unsubscribers in the sidebar includes those who have been removed via emails outside of this sequence, while the total number of unsubscribers in the per-email stats do not.

View individual subscriber actions

You can take things one step further by clicking on any email in the Reports page, and you’ll be taken to a page where you can access even more stats:

From that page you can click on the links on the right sidebar (Recipients, Opens, Clicks and Unsubscribes) to see exactly which subscribers took action to fall under each of those categories.

For Clicks, you also have the option to identify which subscribers clicked on each link.

Just click the number of subscribers (as shown below), and you’ll be able to see which subscribers clicked on the corresponding link:
