About conversion tracking for TrueView line items

It's important to note that conversions in TrueView campaigns are counted differently than other types of line items in Display & Video 360.

TrueView line items

Unlike other types of line items which require you to select a Floodlight activity to use for conversion counting, TrueView line items automatically use any of the TrueView-enabled Floodlight activities that exist for your advertiser to count conversions. For information on enabling your Floodlight activities to count TrueView conversions, see Set up conversion tracking for TrueView inventory.
