Dashboard Historical Data

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

How do I view historical data in my Merchant Center Dashboard beyond 30 days? The majority of my data feed is currently disapproved, and I'm trying to figure out when this started. 

 

Thank you!

currently, items automatically expire after 30-days
so unfortunately, there is no way to access specific
historical item-status data further back in time.

 

a best-practice is to resubmit inventory data

at least a week before items are set to expire

or immediately after any critical change to the

website or physical inventory occurs.

depending on the account details, the diagnostics-tab
may show an overall historical view of disapprovals
in red, a bit further back in time.

or, the api-diagnistocs-tab if the api is used to submit data.

as an aside, if a data-feed is being used to submit items, a
best-practice is to set the general-settings contact details
to always send results after processing -- so that an email
is sent with an overview of any issues and if there are no
issues, as a reminder to check the product-status details.

 

disapproval issues can relate to the data being submitted, product images,
type of item, account settings, feed settings, target-country, website details,

supply-chain, or some combination of these -- a single disapproval can be

for multiple issues.

 

for example, the checkout process flow must be entirely https/ssl secure.

 

the best likely course would simply be to contact a

merchant-center product-listing-ads support specialist.
