Snapchat Ads Data Studio template

How to use Cervinodata's Snapchat Ads data studio template

Google Data Studio is a powerful way to report on key summary data from all sorts of sources. Many online marketing agencies and online marketers use Data Studio for reporting or dashboard purposes. Data Studio offers multiple ways to connect data to a report, this is done through a Data Studio connector. Data Studio connectors can connect Native Google service data to a report, but it there is a growing community of third party connectors that allow you to connect for instance Snapchat Ads data to Data Studio. Cervinodata offers Data Studio connectors for the main advertising platforms. The Cervinodata connectors come with specific features that will save you time and frustration when reporting on data.

What's in the Snapchat Ads Data Studio template?

This article shows you what's inside the template, how exactly Cervinodata's Data Studio template for multiple Snapchat Ads accounts works and how easy it is to add or remove an account.

Dropdowns for easy filtering

The Snapchat Ads template has multiple dropdowns for easy filtering. The templates can be adjusted to your needs, or you can use the data set that is underneath the template and build your own report from scratch. The dropdowns are simply the frequently asked features when we build a Data Studio dashboard, and they show the unique features Cervinodata has to offer.

Multiple organisations

Cervinodata allows you to filter data by Organisation. In the case of multiple Snapchat Ads accounts it allows you to group a couple of ad accounts to one organisation (Brand A), and a couple of others to another organisation (Brand B) and still be able to report on all the ad accounts, without having to change blending settings.

This makes it very easy to add or remove an account. Or group the accounts of multiple clients together.

Multiple accounts

Easily report on one or multiple accounts without complexity. If you have multiple accounts in your report you can easily deselect any or all but one, and all graphs and tables will be filtered. If you want to report on all your accounts in a topline report, you can also use our Ad data agency overview (See here to find out more).

In Cervinodata, connect another account to the Organisation and it will automatically be added.

Historic data

In the template, we have chosen to show the results in the graphs by months, but for more details, it's possible to drill down the graphs to show the results (by ad account) by day. In the Data Studio connector, the data is available per day. For Free plans, this data history is limited to 182 days, for all paid plans, more historic data is available.

Report on up to two years of historic data per day.
(requires paid plan).

Each Cervinodata connector comes with data per campaign included. This means you can use the Cervinodata Snapchat Ads Data Studio connector for reporting on all of your Snapchat Ads by account(s) or by campaign(s). Our "Advanced" connectors include the campaign grouping feature (more on campaign grouping here).

What metrics are available in the Snapchat Ads template?

But inside the data set of this template, a whole lot of Snapchat Ads metrics are available. See the screenshots on the right to get a detailed view.
