Overview

Adjust Automate reduces work for marketers by automating day-to-day tasks and centralizing all of your data from different ad campaigns, countries, and networks into one dashboard. From here, you can analyze the KPIs you care about quickly and easily.

With powerful SAN reporting functionality, you can view and optimize attributes from Facebook, Google Ads (UAC), Snapchat, Twitter and Apple Search Ads. This lets you monitor campaign performance in an entirely customizable way. On top of this, you can also access advanced reporting for all of your Adjust-tracked partners. 

To access Automate, use the link in the Adjust dashboard menu.

Report automation

Automate shows aggregate data from all of your Adjust-tracked apps’ Statistics data (Deliverables and Cohorts) and from your Networks. With our Report Automation solution, you can set conditions and filters to a highly granular level to quickly cut through all of that data to just see what matters. Then, save the view to easily reuse for other campaigns with a single click.   

Default report settings have 3 parameter groups: Dimensions, Attributes, and Metrics (including KPIs). The timezone for all reports is UTC by default. 

Parameter groupDescription
DimensionsDimensions define your campaign structure, and the scope of your report.

MetricsChoose the most relevant metrics for your analysis. All Deliverables, all in-app events, and Adjust’s most popular Cohort metrics can be selected, as well as Automate’s own custom KPIs.

Currently, all metrics only handle click-based attribution.
