You can view your eBlasts in Draft, For Approval, Scheduled, and those Sent in your calendar. You can also use the legend at the bottom left of the app to filter your calendar view for specific eBlasts.

Step 4 - Check Reports

Reports allow you to view statistics about your eBlast campaigns. Reports can be viewed at both the Org and Sub-org level. To view Reports at the Org level select the Org only and click on Reports in the left sidebar of the app. Here you can see the eBlasts for all of your properties for a specific date range, and you can adjust the date range in the top left of the app.
