|Summary||0019765: Percentage calculation in statitics overview differ|
I send a campaign to a total of 501 addresses. After two days I have 188 views for that message.
On the dashboard it tells me 188 views (37%), but in my statistic overview it says 188 views (43,22 %).
Seems that the module here is calculating (for the whole output in the statistics section) with different values:
Here it sorts out the bounces (66) -> (501 - 66) = 435 and uses the value 435 as "total" for the calculation of the percentage.
That is a bit confusing... is it a wanted behavior of the system?

Hello blu-IT your question is fixed?
I am not sure - this issue is now almost 2 years old. I have not recieved any update on this.
I will try with an recent phpList version an report.
I checked this issue again with phpList V. 3.8.8 and the output is still confusing:
On the Dashboard I can see the statistics for the last sent message:
Sent to 141 recipients and viewed by 72 recipients (53,33%) and 6 bounced (4,26%).
This information is identical when I go to Statistics -> Statistics overview.
BUT when I go to Statistics -> Show opened messages, the percentage is calculated differently:
The system tells me now that 72 of 141 recipients is 51,06 % - what indeed is the CORRECT calculation.
This means that the output claculation on the Dashboard and Statistics overview is WRONG:
The original problem of the Last Campaign widget being different to the Statistics Overview was fixed https://github.com/phpList/phplist-ui-bootlist/pull/115 . The solution was to use the approach in Statistics Overview ( total sent - bounces) because the Statistics Overview page has been in place for much longer than the Last Campaign widget.
