manual: 

Spends need to be added to the spends section manually in the spreadsheet.

bulk: 

Spends added will be distributed evenly between the given dates. 

cpl: 

Spends for a given day will be calculated dynamically based on the number of leads that came on that day * cpl.

cpql: 

Spends for a given day will be calculated dynamically based on the number of qualified leads that came on that day * cpql. 

cpsv: 

Spends for a given day will be calculated dynamically based on the number of site visits that came on that day * cpsv.

Spends for a given day will be calculated dynamically based on the number of bookings that came on that day * cpb.

 

NOTE: When the campaign's date range is not specified, the system assumes the date range of the start and end date of the ongoing mandate.

 


5. Adding Manual Spends

  • Select the channel as per your requirement. Here in the example, we have chosen 'offline'.

  • Select ‘Source' and 'Sub Source' accordingly from the list.

  • Select ‘Project’ for tracking the Spends at the project level.

  • Select 'manual' under the Spends section, turn 'ON' the integration, and click 'Save Changes'.

 

Once the integration is active, you will be able to see the added manual key under your 'Spends' section to add expenses from your campaign on a daily basis similar to a spreadsheet.

 


6. How To Check Spends Mismatch?


Before reporting the 'Spends' mismatch to the support team, please verify the following prerequisites to confirm the issue: 


I. Mandate ‘Start Date’ & ‘End Date’ in the mandate settings should be correct.

Note: 

Start Date- The selected date should always be in the past of the current date.

End Date- The selected date should always be in the future of the current date.


II. After verifying the ‘Start Date’ & ‘End Date’ on the mandate settings, please check the same in the Marketing Panel (In reporting details under the configuration tab).



III. Ensure that all the linked ad accounts are correct in the ‘Reporting Details’ under configuration in the marketing panel.



IV. In the ‘Campaign’ tab of the marketing panel, please check that the associated campaign is created with the correct ‘Source’ & the ‘Sub Source’.


V. Check the key code (generated while creating campaigns in the marketing panel) added against the campaigns in the ad managers. 



VI. All the respective Child Ad Accounts (CID) must give access to the MCC ID of ANAROCK Digital.


Once all these are verified and still, a mismatch is occurring, then please reach out to our support team at support@anrock.com.
