Learn how DFP notifies you about important events

DFP alerts provide notification of important events from the DFP user interface. Click the bell icon (DFP alert icon) in the top-right screen of the user interface to open a window where DFP lists important events. When the bell is active, you'll see a number signifying how many important, unread events there are (DFP alert icon (active)).

Among other events, DFP alerts you when line items:

To mark an alert as read, click the small "x" on the alert, which appears when you float over a given alert.

The "needs creatives" alert may take a few hours to clear once you've added creatives to the line item.
  DFP sales management
  • As a publisher with DFP sales management enabled, DFP alerts you to other important events related to your sales. Some of these events include:
    • Proposals that are awaiting your approval
    • Proposals that you submitted and were successfully approved for a step during the review process
    • Proposals that you submitted but were rejected during the approval process
    • When inventory is released and a proposal retracted
    • Proposals that were archived
  • In addition, DFP provides alerts when corresponding orders or line items are updated as a result of changes to their originating proposals or proposal line items. Inspect "Change history" with details from this alert to identify precisely what updates were made.
  • DFP also notifies you if there are reconciliation updates or changes to orders with which you're associated.
