Ad Performance Metrics in Custom Reporting

If you have a connected Facebook, Google or LinkedIn ad account, you will now be able to see ad performance metrics in custom reporting. The power of custom reports coupled with your ad performance metrics data means you can now create reports that show year over year spend. You can also drill into specific campaigns and add them to a dashboard, or drill down to the ad level and compare spend across ads in a single report! The possibilities are endless.

By allowing this data into custom reporting, you can now fully utilise the power of custom reporting to take your ads reporting to the next level. The new metrics that will now be surfaced in custom reporting are:
