Facebook Ads Manager¶
Facebook Ads Manager is your starting point for running ads on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger or Audience Network. It’s an all-in-one tool for creating ads, managing when and where they’ll run, and tracking how well your campaigns are performing.
Connecting to Facebook Ads¶
Mammoth allows you to connect your Facebook account to get your Ads data into Mammoth.
Select API & Databases from the add menu and click on Facebook Ads Manager.
Click on a new connection and log in into your Facebook account.
Select the account and click on “Next”.
Select the table you want to import and complete the test query with ID/TARGET , like this:SELECT * FROM Ads WHERE Id = 'act_123456'
Click on Next.
Facebook mandates the use of ID / TARGET for connecting Ads data to any third-party applications for security purposes. Keep it handy for a swift connection.
After you have selected the table you want to work on, you get options to configure it as follows:
Scheduling your Data Pulls¶
You can start retrieving the data now or at a specific time according to your choice. You can also schedule the data pull in order to get the latest data from your Database at a certain time interval - every few minutes, daily, weekly or monthly.
On every data pull from your Database, you also have an option to either replace the older data or combine with older data.
On choosing Combine with older data option, you will get an option to choose a unique sequence column. Using this column, on refresh, Mammoth will pick up all the rows that have greater value in this column than the previous data pull.
