Custom goals define the success events that an advertiser requires to meet its business objectives. Each package that uses the optimization goals “Highest ROAS - Custom Goal” or “Lowest CPA - Custom Goal” must include a custom goal that will help achieve the overall optimization goal. You can create custom goals as objectives in Advertising Cloud Search.
Each custom goal consists of one or more metrics, or transaction properties, and the relative weights of those transaction properties. The available transaction properties include all metrics tracked using the Advertising Cloud conversion pixel and through Adobe Analytics.
custom_event_[*event #*]_[*Analytics report suite ID*]. Example:
For example, suppose that three metrics (transaction properties) are relevant to a specific package in one of your campaigns: “PDF Download” valued at 20 USD, “Email Signup” valued at 30 USD, and “Order Confirmation” valued at 40 USD. If you want to give weight according to the one-time monetary value of the customer action, then the relative weights of the properties would be 1, 2, and 1.5.
