Share report results

You can share results generated from a report with your team, whether the report is scheduled or not. To find reports you've run, click Reporting and then Reports.

Open the report to share, then complete the following steps.

Share a scheduled report

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. After scheduling your report, enter the email addresses or names of people you want to share the report results with. The list populates with your Ad Manager network's users and contacts as you type.

    For each user with whom you share results, you can decide whether to send them the report as a link, an attachment, or both a link and attachment. Only send a link to users who have access to your Ad Manager network. For contacts, you can only send the report as an attachment. Scheduled reports that are larger than 10.49MB are sent in a .zip file.

    Share reports with people outside of your Ad Manager network
    You can share reports with people who are not registered users or contacts in Ad Manager. Enter their email address, then click the address when it displays in the drop-down.

    People not registered as a user or contact in your Ad Manager network won't have access to the Ad Manager user interface.

  3. Click Save and give the report a meaningful name. This report will run and be shared according to schedule you've defined.

Share one-time report results

  1. Sign in to Google Ad Manager.
  2. Create and run your report.
  3. Click Share and configure recipients after your report results have loaded.

Sharing a report using the Google Drive file format

When you share, schedule, or export a report using the Google Drive file format, the report is uploaded as a new file to your Google Drive and attached to a notification email. You need to grant Ad Manager access to your Google Drive account to allow it to upload the file.

You can remove Ad Manager’s access to your Google Drive at any time.

If you granted Ad Manager access to your Google Drive before May 12, 2020, you will need to grant permission again to continue using the Google Drive file format.
