Create Dashboards and Reports for Facebook Ads


It’s been a long journey since we applied to become an authorized Facebook Ads API developer part of their Preferrered Marketing Developers program (PMD). DashThis now hits a milestone by releasing its integration of  the Facebook Ads report stats API. That makes us one of the few reporting solution providers to offer such integration.

Many of our clients will enjoy that news as much as we do! In other words, you can now create Facebook Ads dashboards using the various metrics and dimensions provided by the Facebook Ads API.

We created the following standard KPIs available from the Indicators drop down menu:

  • Actions
  • Clicks
  • Click-Through Ratio (CTR)
  • Cost
  • Cost per 1000 People Reached
  • Impressions
  • Reach
  • Social Clicks
  • Top Campaigns (Clicks)

What are the metrics and dimensions available from the advanced editor?

Dimensions are:

  • Ad Group
  • Ad Placement

  • Ad Clicks
