How to Utilize Pre-Built Dashboards

The Ad Management team has built dashboards for you in the Platform. See what you can do with these reports.

Each publisher account in the Ad Management platform will have access to a few high level reports & dashboards. Those reports are:

  • UTM Campaign

  • Demand Partner
  • Demand Channel
  • Browser
  • Country

Keep in mind that these pre-built reports only allow you to see one dimension at a time. Embedded reports show performance over time based on the dimensions above.

Acquisition Data

All of these data points fall under the "Acquisition" dropdown option in the platform. These data points and dashboards utilize UTM tracking parameters that are set by the publisher.

UTM Campaign

This dashboard can be used to monitor performance of your ads based on the UTM Campaign that you're using. 

  • Examples: facebook-ads, back-to-school-promo, email-newsletter

UTM Content

This dashboard can be used to view UTM Content performance to see performance after users click on a certain item. 

  • Examples: navigation-menu, subscribe-button

UTM Medium

Publishers can utilize this dashboard to see performance based on what type of traffic the reader originated from. 

  • Examples: cpc, social, referral, display

UTM Source

This dashboard can be utilized for publisher reporting efforts on where the traffic comes from. This parameter is similar to UTM Medium, but is a bit more granular.
