7 Performance History Graphs

Time series graphs broken down by day. The graphs show the performance of your campaigns, their goals, or format types during their runtimes, based on the selected performance metrics. You can hover over the graphs to see the numbers for each day. Time periods where no data is recorded are not displayed.

For the campaigns, goals, or format types where no metrics are available, the Performance History displays the following message: No data to show.

8 Performance Metrics By default, impressions are selected and displayed in all the graphs as soon as you filter on campaigns. You can customise the performance metrics you want to see for each of the campaign, goal, or format type time series graphs. The following metrics are available:
  • Impressions
  • Ad Started
  • Ad 25% Completion
  • Ad 50% Completion
  • Ad 75% Completion
  • Ad Completed
  • Click-throughs
9 Performance History Graphs Filter Tabs For each campaign, you can select whether you want to display the campaign (default), goal, or format type time series graph.
  • When you reload the page, all data is lost.
  • When you filter on specific campaigns and configure the metrics summary breakdowns (part 3), selected metrics (part 6), and graph filters (part 9) as desired, these are stored in the URL and history. This means that when you choose to filter on different campaigns, with or without reloading the page, the same breakdowns, metrics, and filters are applied to those campaigns by default.
