If you don't use the country breakdown, single-targeted campaigns will display country values, but a multi-targeted campaign will be "N/A" unless we can estimate it based on attribution data. Estimated data may not be identical to TikTok. See "How is cost calculated per country?"

To set up the TikTok for Business data connector:
In your Singular account, go to Settings > Data Connectors.
Click Add New Connector and start typing "TikTok". Select "TikTok Ads" from the list that appears.
In the configuration window that opens, click Sign In with TikTok and log into your TikTok For Business account.
The TikTok platform asks if you want to grant Singular permissions to access TikTok data. Check the Agree to the Platform Service Agreement checkbox and click Confirm.
- After you grant the permissions, the configuration window in Singular indicates that you are connected. You can close the window.
TikTok now appears in the list of data connectors. The data connector status is "Pending" while Singular performs the first data pull. Once the first data pull is completed, the status will change to "Active".
After the data connector has successfully pulled data into Singular, you can start running reports that include TikTok data. For more information see the Reports FAQ, Singular API Reference, or Singular Data Destinations FAQ.
Additional Metrics (Conversion Events)
Singular pulls metrics from the TikTok for Business metrics list. By default, regular events are pulled from the "in-app events metrics" section and SKAdNetwork events from the "Supported SKAN Metrics" section of the list. In addition to these, you can pull any metric by creating a conversion event in Singular.
To create a conversion event:
- In Singular, go to Settings > Events. If you have both Custom Events and Conversion Events tabs, select Conversion Events.
- Click New Event.
In the TikTok Ads dropdown, select the desired metric.
The next day, when Singular pulls daily data for your account, it will pull completions as well.
- After the new event is populated with some data, run a report in the Reports page, and choose the conversion event you created from Events dropdown.
