4. Trend Analysis & Comparison chart


We have two different types of graphs on the DSP Manager:

a. Trend - This graph shows the profile trend of all the performance metrics of the account for the particular marketplace. Sellers can see their daily/weekly/monthly trends for the selected date range on the page.



Trend Analysis Chart


b. Compare - This is a Performance comparison chart based on the date period(YoY, and PoP). Sellers can compare the performance of any of their Orders based on the two selected date ranges so that they can analyze their performance in one date range vs. performance during another date range. Also, sellers can download the graph data into a CSV file.



Comparison Chart


Note: The comparison chart shows the previous and current time frame trends with separate lines and the legends (in different colors) on the chart explain what each line stands for.

  • There are separate tabs at the top-left corner of the graph where sellers have the options to choose if they want to see a trend chart or a comparison graph for daily/weekly/monthly time frame for the selected date range on the page.

  • This chart shows the PoP/YoY comparison chart. The comparison intervals work in conjunction with Weekly/Daily/Monthly options on the right.

  • Sellers will also be able to see their previous and current data like year over year, month over month, week over week, last X days with the week before, etc. on the comparison chart on the Hero cards at the top of DSP Manager.


5. DSP Manager Table

Description: We build the DSP Manager table so that one can see all their DSP data in one place, which can help them effectively optimize their campaigns. We have added various columns to the table by default and a few of them are also added on the ‘Orders’ tab that users can select to display on the table if they want to see them. Also, sellers can download all these data into a CSV file.

OTHER ENHANCEMENTS


11. Performance enhancements for Dashboard, ProductVu, PPC Manager, and Financial

reports.

Description: The queries on Dashboard, ProductVu, PPC Manager, and Financial Reports have been optimized for better performance of page loads. These pages load much faster than they used to take earlier, especially on large accounts.


12. Rebuilt the ‘Campaign Pattern Bulk’ component on the PPC Manager

Description: We rebuilt this whole component and introduced a few new features here along with fixing some bugs on the existing features and functionalities of campaign bulk upload.


Campaign Bulk Upload


This will allow you to create, edit/modify or delete associations between your campaigns. The "Download" option will download a list of your existing campaign patterns. Sellers can then use this template to create new, modify existing, or delete campaign patterns in bulk by using the "Upload" option.


When making changes to the Campaign fields, the first line that modifies the campaign will be used, and the later changes to the campaign will be ignored. Please note that Campaign Patterns will be fully rebuilt from the information provided on the file that you upload, including all links between campaigns and transfer rules.


To prevent unexpected behavior, only upload campaign patterns you would like to create, modify, or delete. The following table explains what each field does and how to use it.
