CSV Breakdown

Column

Type of Information

Additional Instructions

A

Operation

Any rows where you're making a change must have Update included as the value in this column. If the field is left blank, Perpetua will ignore the changes made in the file when uploading into your account.

B

Goal Title

What your goal is named in Perpetua.

C

Goal Type

  • The type of goal this is in Perpetua.

  • The value will state Single Campaign or Multi-Campaign.

D

Segment

The segment that this campaign is a part of.

E

Campaign Name

The name of the campaign as it appears in Perpetua.

F

Campaign ID

Auto-populated with your campaign ID.

G

Active

  • Reflects the user-inputted state for the campaign.

  • If the campaign is active, it will say Enabled, but if it's paused, it will say Paused.

  • Change the status accordingly depending on whether you want to pause or enable a campaign.

  • 🚨Note: Please reference the "Supported Actions" section above for a breakdown of the capabilities and limitations of this column🚨

H

Status

  • Reflects what the overall Perpetua status of the campaign is, taking into account the goal, segment, and campaign statuses. If any of those three are paused, the campaign will also be paused and the Status column will reflect this.

  • An example of when the Active and Status columns can be different is if the user hasn't manually paused the campaign but has paused the goal. This means the Active column would read Enabled, since the user has kept it this way, but the Status would be Paused since the goal as a whole is paused.

I

Budget Allocation Limit

  • Sets a percentage limit for the amount of budget a campaign can consume from the associated Segment budget.

    • 🚨Note: If a campaign's Budget Allocation Limit is set to 60%, this does not mean it will use 60% of the budget. It means that the campaign can use up to 60% of its associated Segment budget.🚨

  • Accepted values can range from 1-100.

  • 🚨Note: please reference the "Things to be aware of" section above for a breakdown of the capabilities and limitations of this column🚨

J

Budget Utilization

Results the percent of the current budget that the campaign has consumed, based on spend data from the selected date range.

K

Budget

Results the current budget of the campaign. This value is set by the ad engine.

L-U

Performance Metrics

  • Contain performance metrics for your campaigns like attributed sales, spend, ACoS, CVR, and more.

  • The timeframe of the data is controlled by the Performance Date Range field prior to downloading the CSV.
