Setting up a placement to automatically receive performance data from DCM

Wouldn't it be nice to show up to work in the morning and see up-to-date Doubleclick Campaign Manager (DCM) performance metrics in your Bionic dashboard? Good news: Bionic has a nice integration with DCM that makes this possible. Follow the steps below to set this up.

Step 1: Activate the Doubleclick Campaign Manager (DCM) Adapter

If you don't already have the Doubleclick Campaign Manager (DCM) Adapter set up for your account, you'll first need to activate Doubleclick Campaign Manager (DCM) adapter.

Step 2: Get your Doubleclick Campaign Manager (DCM) Placement ID

In order to map your DCM Placement to your Bionic placement, you first need to get your DCM Placement ID.  Here's how you do that:

  1. Sign in to your Doubleclick Campaign Manager (DCM) account.
  2. Click on the Campaigns tab and click on the Name of the Campaign.
  3. On the Campaign page click the Export button in the upper right corner. This will export the DCM campaign into an excel file.
  4. From the DCM excel file copy the Placement ID. 

Step 3: Link your Bionic Placement to your Doubleclick Campaign Manager (DCM)

The final step is to link your Bionic placement to your DCM  placement.  There are two ways to do that: for a single placement or at the campaign level to link several Bionic Placements to several DCM placements.

 

Link multiple placements at once

  1. Sign in to Bionic at https://app.bionic-ads.com/
  2. Click the campaign into which you wish to load the data.
  3. On the media plan, click on the Performance tab.
  4. Click on the “Data Sources” tab.Data_Source_button.png
  5. Click on the ‘Chart’ button. 
  6. Click on “Add Data Source(s) to see the  list of data sources.
  7. Select Doubleclick Campaign Manager from the list of available data sources.
  8. Next select the placements you want to link to your DCM Placements.
  9. Enter your DCM Placement ID in the Placement ID (Optional) field.

 

Once linked, you will start automatically receiving data the following day (tomorrow morning). If you have any problems, don't hesitate to contact our customer support group. We're always happy to help you.
