How to Setup Automated Report in Google Analytics?

Purpose: Sometimes there is some confusion about last click attribution i.e. who to allocate the sale to from the advertiser's end. The data in this report will be tracked on the basis of the utms used in the tracking link on DCMnetwork. 

This report helps identifying "the source who is allocated the sale", and so we update our conversion report according to your data.

Quick Guide:

 

Setting Up The Report:

  1. Report Content > Dimensions: ad_content + Date + Order ID
  2. Metrics: Transactions, sale amount, sessions
  3. Filters: source = dcmn
