Report on performance

Overview of the new Ad Manager reporting experience

We’ve designed an improved Ad Manager reporting experience, including several updates across the reporting user interface. Some elements were renamed, while others were moved to improve efficiency. 

The new Ad Manager reporting experience includes the following updates:

 


"Queries" are now called "Reports"

Type of change: Terminology

Queries will now be referred to as Reports across the Ad Manager user interface. The data contained in reports will be referred to as the report results. The Query Tool will now be referred to as Ad Manager reporting.

To find your reports, click Reporting and then Reports

To create a new report, click Reporting and then Reports and then New report.

 


"System queries" are now called "Templates"

Type of change: Terminology, UI location

System queries will now be referred to as Templates and you can find them in the Ad Manager sidebar.

To view the available templates, click Reporting and then Templates. Click Down arrow to expand each template and view the related report criteria.

To start a report from a template, click Reporting and then Templates. Click the name of the template to load a report using the template criteria. Optionally, you may make changes to the report criteria, if desired. Then, click Run to run the report using these settings or click Save to save it.

 


"Preferences" are now called "Presets"

Type of change: Terminology, UI location

Preferences will now be referred to as Presets and they’ve moved to the main Reports page. Use report presets to select the default settings that should be used for each report type. These presets only apply to reports started by you.

To view and select report presets, click Reporting and then Reports and then Presets.

 


The "Ad unit" dimension has been simplified

Type of change: Terminology, Functionality

The Ad unit dimension previously included the option to view top-level ad units or all ad units. These options have been separated into two different dimensions—"Ad unit (all levels)" and "Ad unit (top level)"—so you no longer need to select an option. Instead, select the ad unit dimension that meets your needs.

To use these dimensions, click Reporting and then Reports and then New report and select them from the list of available dimensions.

To run a hierarchical ad unit report, select the “hierarchical” table structure and use the “Ad units (all levels)” dimension.

 


An end date is now required to schedule a report

Type of change: Functionality

When you schedule a report, you will now be required to enter an end date before you can save.

To schedule a report, click Reporting and then Reports and then New report and select the report criteria, such as dimensions, metrics, and filters. Then, select the scheduling criteria, including the start and end dates and the recipients.


A new custom date range selector has been added

Type of change: Functionality

You can select the new "Custom" option to define a custom date range for a report. You can mix different units of measurement together to create the ideal date range.

To use the new custom date range, click Reporting and then Reports and then New report and select the report criteria. For Date range, select "Custom." Enter the start and end date values and select the units of measurement for each. The start date must occur before the end date.
