The following tools can help you diagnose issues with placement setup and pacing once a campaign is live:

  • Change Log: Shows changes to key placement settings, such as the name, status, and maximum bid. Each entry includes the date and username of the person who made the change.
  • Ad Approvals: Shows whether ads were approved or rejected by the inventory providers. You can optionally change the status of any ad (for example, pause a rejected ad) or open the ad settings.
  • Non Bids: Shows why DSP didn’t bid on the placement.
