What are the various options for the columns of my Import Wizard?

What is “Use for Mapping?”
  • This is the field that you and your team will use to connect data from your files to Tap Dashboards.
  • Typically this is something like an Advertiser Name, Client Name, Company Name, or Campaign Name. Think of this as the most granular thing that might represent one of your dashboards.
  • If you have questions about how to approach this field, reach out to your Account Manager for guidance

 


What is “Use for Date Range?”
  • This will indicate to the system what field is needed for the Date Range. This is an important field because it controls how data is impacted by the on screen date range picker.
  • If you have questions about how to approach this field, reach out to your Account Manager for guidance

 


What make a field “Unique”?
  • Look at your data. What makes each row different from the row above it? Typically this is an ID type field like a Campaign ID or an Ad ID but could also be a Keyword. Alternatively select up to three fields which when combined will always provide different combinations in rows.
  • If you have questions about how to approach this field, reach out to your Account Manager for guidance

 


Can you explain “Is Metric?”
  • This is a field that is used to indicate if a value is a performance metric, like Impressions or Clicks. Most of the time, you’ll want to click this.
  • The case where you would not use this designation is for say a budget or an impressions targeted value, an attribute on a campaign, something that doesn’t change from day to day.

 


What are the “Operation” drop downs?
  • The “Operation” drop downs will allow you to define how the system will handle the fields that you defined as a metric. You can either “Sum” or add values together for a field or you can “Average” values together.
