When you first open the Campaign or Email Dashboard in Insight, the metrics for your aggregate activities is displayed. These are very useful benchmarks, but what if you want to drill down in the reporting? You can! You might have noticed the drop-down menus at the bottom of the dashboard here:



In this article, we’ll show you how to configure and use these selectors to segment your dashboards.

Once selected, all of the reports in that dashboard will only show results for those Campaigns flagged with that Field. Very cool!
