Budget spend remaining column

Displays the amount of monthly budget that has not yet been spent in a monthly-spend bid strategy.

The value is calculated as:

  • Budget spend remaining = Monthly budget - spend from the beginning of the month to the earliest date in the report's date range
As the date is based on the earlier date in the selected date range, we recommend you select a one-day date range (e.g., June 1 - June 1).

For example:

  1. You set a target spend of $3000 for June, a month with 30 days.

  2. In the UI, you set the date range to June 10 - June 10.

  3. Between June 1 and June 10 (the earliest date in the date range), DS spent $1000 on the bid strategy.

  4. DS substracts $1000 (the spend from the beginning of the month to the earliest date in the report's date range) from $3000 (the monthly budget). Budget spend remaining is $2000 (calculated as $3000 - $1000).
