Categories help organize your email analytics by enabling you to tag emails by type.
Just as you can view the statistics on all your activity under the ’Statistics’ tab, you can go a step further and view the statistics on a particular category.
The events that can be associated with category include:
- Emails sent
- Spam Reports
The actual statistics included vary depending upon the set of enabled Apps. Emails sent, bounces and spam reports will always get tracked. Unsubscribes, Clicks, and Opens require that the associated App is enabled.
You can use SendGrid’s SMTPAPI to add these categories to your email. The following should be added to the email’s header:
1 2 3
In this example, SendGrid would associate statistics for the email containing that header with the category Example Category.
You can assign multiple categories per message, up to 10:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
