Is there a way to know when the statistics for a campaign were last updated?

You can get the date it was sent, but not the date/time the last statisical update was done.

 

Aside from read the full detail of each event, and find the lastest date/time that way

but that's a lot of bandwidth - it would be great if it was in the details of the campaign summary

 

helpful information to know when a campaign has reached it's end of life for tracking purposes.

Re: Is there a way to know when the statistics for a campaign were last updated?

Hello,

 

The most effective way to do this would be to store the summary data (total unique events) that are part of the campaign data in your database. Then you can make a call to the email campaign endpoint using the updateSummary parameter to force a refresh on the tracking summary data. If the totals have changed, you will know that you need to refresh tracking data, and also which specific category has changed. This would allow you to selectively pull clicks or opens depending on which one has changed.

 

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know!
