The Performance Report measures the success of your publishers, campaigns, products, and promotions over a specified time frame. This report provides an overview of how your program is performing and details about the revenue and traffic generated from each active publisher. Advertisers can use the Performance Report to view how your programs and publishers are performing.
Here is a breakdown of the important sections of this report:
The Time Frame drop-down menu allows you to select the time period you would like to view data from. You can select a pre-determined time frame or select a custom time frame.
Performance Report By
This section allows you how you would like to filter your overall performance data for the chosen period of time.
The “Performance Report By” filter allows you to divide your overall performance data in the following ways:
- “Daily,” “Weekly,” “Monthly,” and “Yearly” - time distinctions
- “By Publishers” - publisher (traffic source)
- “By Programs” – program

The “Compare to another period” box allows you to compare differences in data between your chosen time period and a previous time period.
You can also input custom time periods.

Save Report/Run Report Buttons
Once you have selected the appropriate date range and the way that you would like to filter your report, you can choose whether you want to save the report template or generate the report.

You can load these report templates immediately by clicking the appropriate report in the “Saved Templates” drop-down menu and clicking the “Load Saved Report” button.
The Performance Graph provides a visual representation of your clicks, sales, sales volume, and conversions over a certain period of time. You can hover over a particular date to see the activity for a given day.
