Big data report - interaction metrics


Interactions are also called actions or events. They all refer to the same concept.

This article lists the available interaction metrics in big data reports with explanations. Video interactions are described here.


To access the Metrics section of big data reports:

  • go to Reports > Creation of a report
  • select appropriate columns (Note: the interaction metrics are not compatible with Targeting related columns; for instance, you cannot get interaction metrics when you selected "Country", "State", "OS", "Keyword" etc. columns)
  • go to the Metrics section
  • open the section Interactions

Standard events

Standard events are predefined by Smart AdServer. They are identical in all of Smart AdServer's networks.
