Is it possible to measure open rates and/or click-throughs from a particular scheduled reminder email?
Civimail has well developed functionality for open rates and clickthroughs etc, but we have a use case that calls for people to receive an email from a scheduled reminder at the time when they sign up to a group (the email will be sent as a result of an activity generated when they sign up to the group.)
The people are signing up on paper, so there's no problem with spam nor need for double opt-in. Our volunteers are then going to enter people into a webform and at that point the system will send them an email.
We'd like to measure open rates and/or click-throughs from that email.
Is there any cunning trick to make this possible?
If not we can of course adapt our procedures to send mailshots from CiviMail to people every 4 or 6 hours... but that manual process is an additional complexity.
We can also pull these people into MailChimp and do it from there, but we'd lose quite a bit of data possibilities if we did it that way.
Hence my question.
Thanks for your help.
