1. Select the Email Campaigns tab and click the Sent option in the Campaigns menu:

2. Choose the Campaign you'd like to view and choose the Performance tab to track the performance of your campaign:

How to track the contact activity

You can also track performance based on each contact on your list. Just click the Contact Activity tab:

Here you can see which contacts opened, clicked on, or marked your email as spam. Likewise, you can see which specific recipients unsubscribed or bounced.
