Known Limitations and Issues

By default, for historical reasons, data pulled from this data connector appears under the Source "Double Click".

If you've enabled Google Marketing Platform, the data will appear under the source "Google Marketing Platform (DV360)".

If you need it to appear under another name, contact the Singular support team.

Note: The fields available might differ between Double Click and GMP.

Basic Setup

To set up the Google Campaign Manager 360 data connector:

  1. In your Singular account, go to Settings > Data Connectors page and click New Data Connector.
  2. Type in "Double Click DBM / DVI360".
  3. Click Sign in with Google and authenticate with the relevant Google account.
  4. Provide your Partner ID. You can find your partner ID in the DV360 dashboard under Partner Settings / Basic Details

For help, see the Data Connectors FAQ.

Getting Floodlight Activities (Conversion Events)

Singular can pull any "floodlight activities" that you need from DV360 and display their stats in your singular reports. 

To get floodlight activity data:

  1. Add a new event (see How do I add conversion events?). 
  2. In the Double Click DBM / DV360 dropdown, you will see a list of the floodlight activities available from DV360. You can map each activity into a separate Singular event or combine multiple floodlight activities into a single event.

    The next day, when Singular pulls daily data for your account, it will pull these activities' stats as well.

  3. After Singular has populated the new conversion event(s) with some floodlight activity data, when you run a report in the Reports page, choose the conversion event(s) from the Events dropdown.
