How can I determine which variant (message_id) a user received from my Messages?

To see which variant your users received of your message, you’ll need to look at the Variant property.

Which Message ID corresponds to what variant is not exposed in the UI, but you can get it by:

  1. Open Message Analytics for the message in question.
  2. Open the developer console (Google Chrome on Mac: option + command + j, Windows / Linux: Ctrl+Shift+j).
  3. Click on Network, then reload the page.
  4. Click on the segmentation? XHR, then on Preview.
  5. Here, you’ll see the returned values for the data-set used to populate the time-series graph and the respective Message ID value that corresponds to each variant value:

Note: The lowest Message ID value will always correspond to the original variant.

Now, you can look at the Message ID on messages to individual users or filter by Message ID in other Mixpanel reports (like Segmentation or Funnels) to understand behavior based off of specific variants.
