Import Historical Data

If you decide to import cost data for existing campaigns and want to see historical data older than seven days you can choose to have Import Historical Data turned on so that all of your Facebook Campaign Data to date gets imported to Google Analytics

Exporting Tags & Data Imports to CSV

If you need to reference data processed by EAT you have an option to export tagged ads and imported data for active Initiatives on the right-hand side under the Save Setting button.

The option to export CSV will appear as follows:

  • The Ad Tags CSV button appears after an initiative is activated and ads have been tagged.
  • The Imported Data CSV button appears for initiatives with data import enabled, and after the first data import for the initiative has been completed.
