Gmelius unlimited tracking is free and available to all users. In exchange, we add our signature “Powered by Gmelius” to your emails. To remove our branding and keep your communications more professional, you can upgrade to a paid plan, which will offer all the activity stream features described below.

What are the Activity stream features?

Gmelius is the only software to offer both a per-conversation activity stream and a detailed activity report for Premium and Business users. Gmelius’ activity stream features give you the chance to know when an email is first opened, how long it took until it was, how many times the recipient returned to it and location and device details.

Per-conversation activity stream

Every time you open a tracked conversation, you’ll directly know when your messages have been opened and get all the information you need to maximize your reach. You just need to take a look at the right side of a tracked email to see a detailed list of all the tracked activity: Who, How long ago, Where, From which device.

Per-conversation activity stream

Detailed activity report

Inside their Gmelius Dashboard, paid users will also be able to find a detailed activity report. The report compiles a recap of the number of tracked emails, their opening ratio and the time from send to first open average. All these info are then collected and visually displayed in a graph with set time-frames and the option to select a custom date range.

Activity stream

Below the graph lays a thorough listing of all events triggered by tracked emails. This list gives you details of every email opens with the name of the recipient, the subject of the email, when the open took place and where.

This list is also fully searchable by the name of the recipient or the subject of the email.
