What are Report Widgets?
Use Report widgets to turn your raw campaign data into visually striking dashboards with customizable views.
For instance, to compare your metrics trending over time (i.e. clicks vs. impressions), use a Line Chart widget. Want to see how you’re allocating budget across each network? Use the Pie Chart widget to visualize your campaign spend data.
Each widget has customizable settings and filters, allowing you to silo in on the most important KPIs to you, your team, or your client.

Where are Report Widgets found?
They are in the right-hand side of any Report dashboard.
Report Widget types
Display your data in organized rows and columns. Tables are best used to keep track of information in terms of quantities and numbers, where usually there is an aggregated total sum or average of data.
Example: Use a table widget to find your best performing campaigns and quickly spot which campaign is converting the best.
Bar Chart (Bar Graph)
This chart presents grouped data with rectangular bars. Lengths of these bars are proportional to their corresponding values. One axis of the chart shows the specific categories being compared, and the other axis represents a value.
Example: Use a bar chart when trying group spend by week for each network
The Summary Metric Chart is a great way to display metrics with comparisons. With this chart, you can easily select a number of metrics and compare the data against previous periods. Visually see the deltas in change, including percentages.
Example: Comparing metrics (Spend, Clicks, CTR) week over week.
Line Chart (Trend Graph)
A Line Chart is a way to display information, as a series of data points, in a linear fashion. This chart is ideal to see the progress of any metric over time or any specific time period.
Example: Comparing the CTR of all networks by week
The Pie Chart is a great way to illustrate numerical proportion.
Example: Clicks by Network
A progress bar widget will show your progression towards any given metric goal. With this widget, you can see your current progress to-date, and the amount remaining to achieve your target goal.
Example: Spend to Monthly Target
Use the Ad Creative widget to show your creatives side-by-side with their performance data. Simply choose a Facebook, AdWords, Twitter, or LinkedIn ad from the drop-down, select a metric to sort by, and choose how many ads you'd like to see in the widget (max: 6) to add it to your dashboard.
*Note: Ad blockers must be disabled for ad displays to be visible.
(Stacked) Area Chart
A Stacked Area Chart shows the contribution of different categories to a total over time. It’s a great way to visualize part-to-whole analysis. Choose from three options: Stacked Area Chart, 100% Stacked Area Chart, or Cumulative Stacked Area Chart.
Example: Use it to see which networks contribute the most to the overall number of impressions.
