Hi cpv84,

 

I'm not exactly sure if you're lookign for when a budget depeleted on a previous day or somthing similar but for current monitoring of budgets, you can set up 'Custom Alerts' which will send you an email.

 

For a budget based alert, you can choose to be alerted when a percentage of your budget has been spent.  I do think there will be some lag, the same way reporting is lagged.

 

Hope this helps!

I would also suggest, if you're looking for historical data on when your campaign budget is exhausted each day, that you use the Dimensions tab. You can select "hour of day" from the Time dropdown to segment your view that way.

 

If you adjust the column view to add Impression Share metrics, especially IS lost due to budget shortfall, you'll be able to get a very good view of how your campaign handles traffic throughout the day.

 

Good luck!

Hello Theresa,

I tried what you suggested: "Dimensions", "Time of day" and adding a column for "lost do to budget"....

 

The column is empty ("--") for all ads, all add groups and campaigns.

 

do you have a quick pointer?
