Description: This article describes how to format and upload client and partner-level impression mappings data.
Formatting your file
You can upload the data in a flat CSV file. Ensure your file is cumulative, i.e., inclusive of all historical mappings.
Your file must be formatted correctly and according to our guidelines:
|How should I format my impression data mappings file?
|✓ Include all required columns
|✕ Use special characters in the field value, e.g., !,@,%
|✓ Ensure all columns have a header
|✕ Mix data formats in a column
|✓ Ensure headers and field values match those in the examples exactly, including case
|✓ Include only a header row and data within the file
To view an example file in the platform, go to Data > Impressions > Upload Impression Mappings File.
Complete the fields in your data file according to the table below:
