Group-by options

Group by options are available on the Web-to-App and Activity dashboards, but not the Conversion Paths dashboard.

Dashboard data is grouped by, for example, media source, device, or country. When a group is selected, a column of data is added to the results table. The order in which groups are chosen affects how the data is shown. 

  • Default group: Media source/Campaign
  • In the drop-down, select 1 or more of the options.

 Example

Scenario: The same targeting campaign is run in both Net_A and Net_B.

Goal: Look at which media source is more successful.

How? Group by media source, then look at a campaign that is directed towards the same target audience.

Dashboard principles

Data freshness

PBA dashboards and reports are updated daily per the UTC time zone.

  • Daily processing includes events received during the previous day. 
  • In the case of Web-to-App, PBA can identify additional related events during the first 7 days after an install causing a change in the media source identified as being ultimately responsible for driving the install.
