Learn about how to search DFP and filter tables

Below are a few ways to quickly find what you're looking for:

Universal search

Use the universal search box in the upper right-hand corner of any DFP page to find orders, line items, and more. You can search for partial names, and DFP returns any item with your search entry anywhere in the name. Unlike names, when searching for IDs or inventory sizes, the exact ID or size needs to be used to return an item.

  • A search for the advertiser "ACME Wholesale Goods" displays a list of all associated orders and creatives.
  • A search for "olympic" displays the order "Summer Olympic Campaign" and the line item "Gymnastics: Olympics".
  • A search for "12345" will not return a line item with an ID of "123456".
  • A search for "728 x 90" will not return an ad unit associated with the 728x90 inventory size.

Once you've entered your search term, the first five results display directly under the search box. Click a result to go to that item or click Show all to see more results.

Filter table rows

Use filters to search for orders, line items, creatives, native styles, native ad formats, and companies that have certain characteristics. You can save filters for reuse.

Create a new filter

  1. At the top of any list of items, click Filters.
  2. Select Add filters.
  3. Click the criteria for your filter. For example, choose "Advertiser" or "Status."
    • Use the other menus next to the name to further refine how you want to filter by the selected criteria.
    • Click Add or Remove to add or remove criteria as you build the filter.
  4. Click Apply filters.

When you click Add to add multiple criteria, the criteria have an AND relationship. For example, if you filter line items for "Creative upload status is Missing creatives" and "Start time in the next 7 days," both conditions must be met for a line item to be displayed.
