A: Adjusted unique reports are not available in SAS. Unfortunately this data cannot be replicated through Raw Data Feed (RDF) because Adjusted Unique reports are based on known cookie logic (“users” that SAS identified before the start of the campaign).
However, this should not be a blocker for upgrade, In fact, although, this report used to be very insightful a few years ago (in the desktop world ), it is no longer as relevant today. This is especially true for campaigns running on mobile; the portion of the data that this statistically relevant for calculation is often too small. Considering that SAS released new developments to be TCF-compliant last month and TCF v2 will be released in April, this is becoming even less relevant for all campaigns running in the EU.
A: This report can be replicated by the client using Raw Data Feed (RDF); the how-to guide should be released in the near future. In the meantime, please reach out to the custom development team for more information.
A: This report is one of the most complex reports to replicate in the system. If this is a blocker for upgrading to SAS, please submit a product request in Zendesk.
A: To ensure that Media Costs are calculated correctly in your SAS reports, you must include the relevant delivery metric, such as Billing Impressions for CPM cost model, Clicks for CPC cost model, or Video Fully Played for CPCV.
A: There could be several reasons why you see zero media costs in your report:
You generated a report with daily breakdown and media costs were calculated up to a specific date, and then stopped.
The most common reason for this is that Ignore over-delivery in media cost calculations was selected on the placement/package level, and the number of events based on the selected media cost model (such as impressions for CPM, clicks for CPC, or conversions for CPA) exceeded the number of units/cost specified.
To restart media costs calculations, clear this check box for all or specific placements or increase the number of units for those placements.
You generated a report and media costs were never calculated.
The most common reasons include:
Some of the dimensions required for media cost calculations were not specified (Units or Cost Model or both).
The site for which the media costs were not calculated uses Server Side Insertion (SSAI). Since December 2019, impressions served on those sites are found under Default Tracked Ads or Billing Impressions.
