When browsing this library, you can refine your search by selecting common questions that apply to your use case.

These questions are bucketed into three categories:

  • Message Performance
    To hone in on how marketing messages perform in Klaviyo
  • Channel Performance
    To focus on how specific channels (i.e., email or SMS) perform in Klaviyo
  • Business Performance
    To view how specific business metrics and products perform

Click into any of these categories to expand a list of questions to choose from. Then, click the checkbox next to any of the questions that apply to you and your use case for generating a report. This will refine your view so that only reports matching these questions will appear in your search.

When you see a report that suits your needs, click into that report. You can then either run that report as is or customize it to better fit your specific needs. To do so, add any relevant metrics, groupings, and filters.

After configuring your report, click Create Report. This will process and bring you to your report below. From here, you can click Export, to export and locally save your results.

Note for reports with large amounts of data, your report may take a bit longer to compile and run. Thus, you may not see the results right away after clicking Create Report. Instead, you will see an empty table of results below with the initial message from us that we’re working on "Generating Your Results.” When it is complete, you will see a robust summary of your report. Your new report and its results are automatically saved so that you can return to your report via the Analytics tab at any time.

For more information on what each report type entails and how to customize them, head to About Custom Reports in Klaviyo.
