Frequently Asked Questions
|Why are there multiple opens in my recipient’s activity history?||Communications Enterprise reports back gross opens. This means that each time a recipient opens the message, this record is scored and tracked.|
|Why is there no tracking data updating to my Aptify?||Did you select tracking data? Log in to Real Magnet, and then:
1. Select Tools.
2. Select Aptify Management.
3. Select Manage Tracking.
4. Select the Tracking items to sync to Aptify.
|Why is this individual record missing tracking information?||Ensure that individual is assigned an Aptify Person ID. If the individual was uploaded outside of the Real Magnet Scheduler you must ensure that it also has its Aptify Person ID mapped to the Custom Member ID.
This is how the Aptify platform identifies that individual in its database. If an individual is missing this information, no tracking information will push back for that recipient to Aptify.
|What happens if the tracking data portion is canceled mid-stream?||Real Magnet logs the failure and re-attempts to send the data to Aptify.|
|Why can’t I see my view?||Is the view in the RealMagnet Folder? Is the view in the RealMagnet Folder a Person Entity?
If you have a custom created Person entity in Aptify, you'll need to make a modification to your stored procedure by an individual with database access to display that entity name or ID.
|Why am I getting the message: “This upload job has one or more groups to which you do not have access.”?||Do you have access to the group? If your account is Enterprise you will need to ensure that you have access to the group the Upload Job is connected to, or ensure that the group has not been archived.|
