APSIS One provides you with reports for each activity you perform in the platform. In SMS reports you will find the essential information about how your SMS campaign was set up and how it performed. With this valuable information, it will be possible for you to analyse your marketing efforts and how effective your campaign has been.
Please allow up to 10 minutes for Profile data to be available in your SMS Report. After the SMS has been sent, Audience must process and store the data into Profiles before it becomes available.

Click on the tabs to the left of the Report to see the details of the performance of your SMS activity.
A maximum of 25 profiles will be shown on the list. Double-click them to jump straight into their Profile View, and to take a closer look at their latest response data, website interactions, attributes, etc.
If any Profiles were deleted or locked in your Audience after you sent this SMS activity, you will see a message pointing out how many were deleted. To see how many Profiles unsubscribed, see the Unsubscribed tab.
To see the full list, click Export on the top right. The Profiles will be downloaded in a CSV or XLSX file.
It may happen in your sendings that there is one or more SMS numbers that cause or have caused a bounce. For more information about bounces, head over here and see "bounce" and "bounceReason".
If a soft bounce happens, the sending will be retried every hour for up to 48 hours after the initial send time. No further action will be taken.
If a hard bounce happens 3 times, there will be no future attempt to message the recipient(s). If the third hard bounce happened in a previous sending, it will not be sent in the present sending. If the third hard bounce happens in the present sending, there will not be another attempt in future sendings. Consequently, hard bounces will affect the total count of your SMS messages.

In APSIS One, you can create Segments from the SMS Report of any of your activities.
For example, if you wanted to check-in with recipients who didn't engage with a specific SMS, you can try to send them an SMS reminder or reach out to them via Email.
The Segment would include the Profiles who opened your SMS, and it can be saved and used directly, or serve as a starting point for a new Segment. Afterwards, you can exclude the Segment in the Send to step of your reminder Email or SMS, and check-in with your recipients in another channel! Only those who didn't open your SMS would receive the reminder.
