Console Help Center

This page provides a comprehensive overview of GroundTruth's Console reporting app, designed to offer clients transparency into their campaign performance.

What is Console?

Console is a reporting app that provides clients, particularly those without Ads Manager access, with a clear view of their campaign performance. Ad agencies can also leverage Console to give their clients an easy way to monitor campaigns.

Logging In and Viewing Campaigns

Upon logging in, you'll see the main screen displaying all campaigns associated with your account. Similar to the Ads Manager tenant dashboard, you'll find details like:

  • Campaign name
  • Account name
  • Campaign status
  • Days remaining
  • Start and end dates

A search bar lets you quickly locate specific campaigns.

Understanding Campaign Performance

Selecting a specific campaign will reveal various performance details:

Campaign Performance: This section provides high-level metrics like impressions, clicks, visits, click-through rate (CTR), visitation rate (VR), campaign completion, and pacing.

Live Ads: This section offers an hourly breakdown of where impressions are served, with a 6-hour latency. This means you'll see impressions by zip code as they were 6 hours prior.

Note:

  • Visits and VR data can take up to 3 weeks to finalize after the campaign ends.
  • Data reflects a 2-week lookback window with a 1-week lag.
