Creating a New Report

Introduction

Once your campaign has been launched, you can generate reports to analyze your marketing efforts. These reports can include information about how your ads are performing as well as about your audience.

Using the reporting module, you can create a fully customized report based on the metrics and dimensions that you choose. You can also merge the SundaySky report data with your business data to analyze the impact of the video on your business KPIs.

Reports can be generated ad hoc on an as-needed basis or be scheduled to run automatically at regular intervals.


Report Format

All reports are generated in CSV format. The CSV file that is created is sent to email recipients (zipped) or to a server address. Depending on your needs, the CSV file can be analyzed manually by an individual or be automatically ingested into a database.

The column headers and values in the CSV file are all enclosed by quotes, in order to avoid any potential issues relating to commas.
