Interactive reports open beta coming Q3 2024
We're excited to announce Interactive reports, a new reporting tool that makes it easier for you to get the information you need. With Interactive reports you can:

  • Create a report and view the results on the same page in Ad Manager.
  • Select metrics and dimensions using a type-to-select search bar, or view all available in a dedicated window.
  • Analyze data in Ad Manager using pagination, data comparisons (including percentage change), flags, and filtering/sorting.

The Interactive reports (beta) will begin rolling out to all Ad Manager publishers in the coming weeks. When the feature is enabled for your network, you'll be able to follow the steps to Create an interactive report.

"Video optimization" report metrics deprecation
The "Video optimization" report metrics are deprecated. They were removed from the Ad Manager interface in July 2023, and will be removed from the external API in August 2024. See Video Solutions reports to learn about supported video reporting options.
