April 12, 2022 Attribution TikTok

Change to TikTok View-through Attribution

In September 2021, TikTok started requiring MMPs to mask their view-through-attribution user-level data. You now have gained some of that visibility back with TikTok’s latest update. TikTok’s VTA user-level data will still be masked, but instead of reporting as "unattributed", network and campaign granularities will be reported as “TikTok Restricted”.

Review TikTok’s attribution integration.

More Options for Re-engagement and Postback Windows

Control your re-engagement inactivity window on the app level with expanded support for 0-48 hours and up to 90 days. Make granular optimizations and limit your inactivity window by the hour to increase your re-engagement numbers, or expand your inactivity window up to 3 months to ensure you’re not re-engaging too early. Learn more about re-engagement.

Now you can set postback windows for in-app events that differ from your install attribution window to ensure your postback windows are optimized for better conversion rates and CPEs. Each in-app event window can be updated to reference one of three different touchpoint options: “Click Time”, “Install Time”, or opt for “None” if you’d prefer Singular to send all postbacks to your partner (attributed and non-attributed postbacks). Learn more about postback configurations.

Mixed Models

There are three new conversion models available that allow you to mix two model types together, viz. Conversion Events & Revenue, Engagement & Revenue, and Funnel & Revenue models.

Revenue is a valuable indicator but getting revenue signals within a 24-72hr period can be too inconsistent to solely depend on. Now you can incorporate other vital signals to better predict your SKAN campaign performance and user LTV.
