With Bionic, you can manage the performance of your marketing that involves the libsyn ad server. In order for Bionic to make all of it's calculations, it needs the raw performance data from libsyn. It's a simple process to transfer data from libsyn to Bionic.

To upload performance data from Libsyn you will first need to down load your data from Libsyn. The report from Libsyn should include these fields:

  • Date
  • Total_Downloads

Down load and save the file as a CSV.
