DV360-hosted creatives in Campaign Manager
Display & Video 360 is built to improve collaboration between creative, brand, media, and data teams. When you manage your creatives in Display & Video 360 you can view reports on these creatives in both Display & Video 360 and in Campaign Manager.
- Automatic reporting in Campaign Manager. If you manage your reporting in Campaign Manager, you don't need to add Campaign Manager tracking ads to creatives, because uploading a creative to Display & Video 360 automatically creates a creative, ad, and placement in your DV360 Advertiser in your Campaign Manager account (Native site creative types are the only exception).
- Creative teams can directly upload and manage creatives in their own workspace while you continue serving creatives hosted by third-party ad servers and Campaign Manager. When you use Display & Video 360 with Campaign Manager, Display & Video 360 creatives will be served by Campaign Manager as part of a placement. After you add creatives to an advertiser in Display & Video 360, you can select specific creatives for each line item.
- Take advantage of Display & Video 360-only formats. Quickly build creatives using high-performing Display & Video 360 formats, such as Native formats, Flipbook (beta), Parallax (beta), and more.
To avoid potential conflicts with your existing Campaign Manager advertisers, when you host creatives in Display & Video 360, a DV360 Advertiser is automatically created in Campaign Manager. You can use this advertiser to get reports about your Display & Video 360 campaigns directly in Campaign Manager.
To avoid reporting issues, you should not add your own Campaign Manager tracking ads to these creatives. This should speed up your campaign management workflow and reduce potential errors in wrapping creatives.

Some native ad formats in Display & Video 360 require a different workflow than other formats, because the publisher is responsible for rendering a native ad. Note the following differences:
|Native Creative Type||Tracking Differences|
|If your Display & Video 360 advertiser is linked to a Campaign Manager advertiser, you must assign a Campaign Manager tracking ad to your creative under “Serving properties”. If your Display & Video 360 advertiser isn't linked to Campaign Manager, the proper impression and click tracking is automatically added for you.|
|Native video||Campaign Manager tracking ads aren't supported. For Campaign Manager-linked advertisers, you can create reports in Campaign Manager using your DV360 Advertiser ID.|
About impression counting in Display & Video 360 versus Campaign Manager
Impressions are counted differently in your DV360 advertiser than they are in a reservation campaign in Campaign Manager:
- In your DV360 advertiser, impressions are counted when the bid is won.
- In a reservation campaign in Campaign Manager, impressions are counted when the creative serves.
Why can’t I use Campaign Manager tracking ads with my Display & Video 360 creatives?
Campaign Manager tracking ads are used to report on clicks and impressions for content that's not served by Campaign Manager.
Display & Video 360 creatives are served through Campaign Manager, which is why you don't need to use tracking ads. When you host a creative in Display & Video 360, it will automatically show up in Campaign Manager’s DV360 Advertiser, which is one of the benefits of using Campaign Manager and Display & Video 360 together.
