How to create automated, white label reports for DoubleClick for Publisher

doubleclick-publishers-dashboards-1

DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) is very popular among large publishers such as media groups. However, it can get complicated to make reports and dashboards for your clients from their platform.

They have a reporting API, but it’s not as simple to use as Google Analytics for instance. In fact, it’s a complex job to integrate DFP’s reporting API into a third party reporting software like DashThis.

So no reporting API integration is possible. That brings us to plan B which is to use DashThis’s CSV file uploader feature.

Then, create a CSV file template for this report as explained here.

Step 3: Make the process automatic
