Insight metrics

Reports in Insight are built using a combination of attributes and metrics. Attributes are characteristics of your Oracle Eloqua data while metrics are qualitative measures of the attributes. The attribute provides context to the metric in the report. For example, City is an attribute and Total Clickthroughs is a metric. When combined in a report, City is a row and Total Clickthroughs a column. Thus you can learn about the clickthroughs by city. Attributes and metrics that can be combined are provided in a subject area.

Insight metrics are organized under the following types:

Campaign activities

Metric name Metric definition Available from these subject areas
Total Outbound Activities

The total outbound activities. (Outbound Positive activities + Outbound Negative activities) Outbound Positive activities include emails sent. Outbound Negative activities include email bouncebacks.

Tip: You can use the Activity Type attributes for a break down of positive and negative activities.

  • Account Activity
Total Outbound Activities The amount of outbound activity. Outbound activities include emails sent, emails delivered, and surveys sent. This counts all of the activity including multiple activities by the same campaign member.

An outbound activity can be generated by a contact that was initially targeted by the campaign or by a contact that performed an outbound activity (for example, via a forwarded email).
  • Campaign Analysis
  • Campaign Revenue Analysis
  • Campaign Activity by Activity Date
  • Campaign Activity by Asset
Unique Outbound Activities

The number of contacts with at least one outbound activity.

  • Campaign Analysis
  • Campaign Revenue Analysis
  • Campaign Activity by Activity Date
Total Inbound Activities

The amount of inbound activity. (Inbound Positive activities + Inbound Negative activities) Inbound Positive activities include email opens and clickthroughs, form submissions, web page views, and external activities. Inbound Negative activities include email unsubscribes.

Tip: You can use the Activity Type attributes for a break down of positive and negative activities.

  • Account Activity
Total Inbound Activities

The amount of inbound activity. Inbound activities include email opens, clickthroughs, form submissions, and so on. This counts all of the activity including multiple activities by the same campaign member.

An inbound activity can be generated by a contact that was initially targeted by the campaign or by a contact that performed an inbound activity (for example, via a forwarded email).

  • Campaign Analysis
  • Campaign Revenue Analysis
  • Campaign Activity by Activity Date
  • Campaign Activity by Asset
Unique Inbound Activities

The number of contacts that performed at least one inbound activity.

  • Campaign Analysis
  • Campaign Revenue Analysis
  • Campaign Activity by Activity Date
Total Responses The total response activity for the campaign. Your organization defines what a response is and the priority of the response using response rules.

Although a campaign member might respond in many ways to a campaign (for example, clicking through an email or submitting a form), Oracle Eloqua records only the response deemed by your organization as the highest priority response. For example, a form submit at your organization might be considered a higher priority response than an email click-through. So, even if a contact performed both of these responses, Oracle Eloqua records the form submit as a response to the campaign.

Responses are captured for a campaign only after the campaign's reporting start date.

New Leads The total new leads generated by the campaign. A lead is generated if a contact is newly acquired and responds to the campaign. Contacts are considered leads only once, so contacts are considered new leads only the first time they respond to a campaign. For subsequent responses, the contact is considered an existing lead. Your organization defines what a response is and the priority of the response using response rules.
