Campaigns offer a means of grouping and tracking content assets for important internal comms initiatives, allowing for comprehensive monitoring and measurement of their success. Audience insights are provided to improve present and future campaigns.

Use campaigns to promote company objectives, products and services to designated employees across your organization.

Campaign managers

Campaign managers can create and manage campaigns. App managers can assign new Campaign managers by heading to Manage > Application > Privileges.

Campaign managers will only be able to add currently published content to any given campaign. Draft or unpublished content cannot be added. If content is added to a campaign, then unpublished for any reason, it will be auto-removed from the campaign. 

Campaign listing

As the App manager or Campaign manager, to access campaigns, go to Manage > Campaigns. You’ll be taken to the campaigns listing page, which shows all campaigns and information on their:

  1. Target audience count
  2. Campaign content item count
  3. When a campaign was last updated
  4. What is the overall reach of the campaign

Listed campaigns can be filtered by Active or Inactive. If you’d like to delete or deactivate a campaign, click the ellipsis.

Create a campaign

To create a campaign:

  1. Click Add campaign.
  2. Enter a campaign name and about text. You have the option to attach files. 
    • The ‘About’ text should state the purpose of the campaign, including specific goals, timelines and other relevant information.
    • Attachments can include any reference files, plans, or best practices that Campaign managers can refer to. These attachments are only accessible within campaigns and do not appear in the Simpplr global search.
    • Campaign information and attachments can be accessed in the About tab of the campaign once created.

Campaign details

Once a campaign is created, or if it’s selected in the campaign listing page, you’ll be routed to its campaign details. From the campaign details, you can add content to the campaign, view relevant analytics in the Overview, Content, and Audiences tabs, or view its information and attachments in the About tab. 

Add content to a campaign

Campaign managers can add relevant pages, events and albums to inform users about the theme of the campaign by clicking Add in the top right of campaign details or Add content if the campaign is currently blank.

Content can also be added to a campaign from the content details screen by selecting a piece of content, clicking the ellipsis, and selecting Add to campaign. There is no limit to the amount of published content that can be added to a campaign.


Only published content can be added to the campaign. Content from unlisted sites isn't searchable and cannot be added to a campaign.

Campaign analytics dashboard

Note that content can be added to a campaign at anytime, and the analytics dashboard will retroactively pull in its data from the publication date. In other words, you'll see the lifetime analytics of the content in this dashboard, not just since the content was added to the campaign.

  • Can the campaign data be exported?

  • Hi Cheryl. At the moment, no, campaign data cannot be exported. However, this idea is with our Product team for future consideration.

  • Can we possibly target a campaign to a particular audience? if so, how?

  • Hi Sunayana. As of now, no, you can't target a campaign to a specified audience. The purpose of campaigns isn't distribution of content. It's for analyzing consumption metrics of specific content, regardless of where it's housed or how it's distributed. 

    If you want to target certain content to certain people, I would say create a site for those people and that content, send it via a Newsletter, or just link it all in an email and send it to your intended audience. That way, you have your campaign created, and then you send the applicable content to intended users. Similarly, if the intended audience is all part of the same site, make the content live in that site, then make it must read (if you have must read privileges). Then they have to confirm they've read it.

  • So this is more of a backend tool for admins/app managers to capture analytics generated from multiple pages that are relevant to a specific topic or initiative?

  • Hi Tina. Yes, this is more of a data-driven display tool than a distribution method.
