Templates (previously called "system queries") contain pre-selected criteria to help you get started on a new report. Use templates to construct reports for your network over a given time period. Reports can be generated on either a one-time, daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Click Reporting and then TemplatesPreviously: Click Reports and then Queries and then System queries.
  3. Click the report template you'd like to use from the list of available templates. A new report will be started using the pre-selected report criteria contained in the template, such as report type, metrics, and dimensions.

Customize report criteria

  • Date range
    Select a date range other than the pre-selected date range. If you want to schedule a weekly report, select "Last week". If you want to schedule a monthly report, select "Last month".
    Limit the date range of your reports
    A broad date range selection, such as the dynamic date range of Last 3 years, may unfavorably impact your report performance. We strongly recommend that you choose a specific date range whenever possible.
  • Report editors
    Enter the Ad Manager username or email address of people who will be allowed to edit the report.
  • Dimensions and metrics
    Select or deselect from the list of dimensions and metrics. If you're scheduling a weekly report, ensure you've selected "Week" and if you're scheduling a monthly report, ensure you've selected "Month and year".

Run and share your report

You can save or share your templates, like any other report. When you save a template, you're creating a new saved report, not editing the existing template. The report will be listed on the "Reports" page. Select how often you want to run the report, the file type of the report, and optionally with whom you'd like to share the report.
