Coming soon

  • Updates to Demand Channel reporting dimension
    Beginning in January 2020, the Demand Channel reporting dimension will be updated. Exchange Bidding will be renamed Open Bidding, both retroactively and moving forward for consistency within the product. Additionally, for publishers involved in the beta for Network Bidding, this reporting dimension will also be renamed Open Bidding. If this causes changes to your reporting process, we encourage you to plan accordingly before this change occurs next year.

  • Bids data in Ad Manager Data Transfer (Beta)
    In January 2020, Ad Manager 360 publishers will be able to access information about each of their auctions through Ad Manager Data Transfer. The NetworkBackfillBids file will include details about every Open Bidding and Authorized Buyers bid for your inventory, whether the bid won the auction or not. The NetworkBackfillBids sample file will also be updated. Learn more
