|27 October 2021||Custom Reports||You can now create and manage Amazon S3 and different types of FTP delivery locations, called report destinations, for your custom reports.

Your existing reports are still sent to the specified email recipients. To configure delivery to a different report destination, create a new report with the new destination.
|See “About Report Destinations,” “Create a Report Destination,” “Report Destination Settings,” and “Custom Report Settings.”|

|Ads||(Users with permission to include Clearcast clock numbers in their ads) DSP no longer shows an error if you use a clock number that’s attached to another ad. Note: The best practice is to use a unique clock number for each video ad. Otherwise, the publisher won’t approve all of the ads.||—|
|Deal IDs||The Deal ID settings and other places in the user interface reflect new branding for Magnite SSP:
||See “SSP Partners.”|
|Freewheel programmatic guaranteed deals||You can now submit ads and check the status of ads for Freewheel programmatic guaranteed deals from the Ads view.

|30 September 2021||Brand Safety||(22 September release) DoubleVerify brand safety pre-bid products were updated to Brand Suitability Tiers, which allow advertisers to choose between three risk levels (low, medium, and high) for specific segments without avoiding all instances of a certain topic. Historically, segments did not include any tolerance levels.
To align with the new DoubleVerify segment structure, DSP migrated your existing brand safety segments to their new, recommended medium-level segment. You can optionally adjust the segment tier to low or high.
Note: A small list of segments don’t have tiers but have new names, such as “Nuisance/Spyware/Malware,Warez” > Incentivized/Malware/Clutter.”

|Programmatic guaranteed deals||(8 September release) You can now edit the Max Bid for the default placement for a programmatic guaranteed (PG) deal. However, because PG deals always have a fixed CPM, only international clients should edit the Max Bid to take into account currency exchange fees.||—|
|(8 September release) Users with the “FreeWheel Programmatic Guaranteed” permission can now submit an ad to the FreeWheel Programmatic Creative API from the Ads view or the Placements view. You still can submit an ad from the Deals view.||—|
