ConsoliAds Features

Networks

Network section gives comprehensive reports of all the ad networks being used in your applications i.e. Request, Impressions, Clicks, CTR and fill rate. From there you can drill down into specific ad network to view reports only related to that ad network. At a specific ad network screen there are apps list using that ad network you can drill down further more into a specific app to view reports related to select ad network and app. There are filters you can apply to get more specific results.

Brands

Brands represents each account on google play or app store, in other words they are containers for your apps and each app must be associated to a brand. While creating a new brand on consoliads the information you will specify will be used against the apps that are in that brand. Which means support email and more apps url will be same for all apps in that brand.

Brand package prefix

Package prefix is compulsory for a brand to make sure when a new app is created it is assigned its related brand only, because there are different ways an app can be created, therefore the new app package should have the package prefix of its brand.
Example:
Brand Name: Sugar Pot
Brand Package Prefix: com.sugarpot
Application Package: com.sugarpot.sweet.jelly.fun

Apps

There are three ways an app can be created.

  • In your ConsoliAds admin panel going into app section and creating through providing necessary information.
  • When a developer configure settings through unity editor in this case application package is compared with all the brands package prefix and assigned to the matching brand.
  • Bulk Import apps and ad ids

    With bulk importing apps and ad ids apps are also created, this can be done by going into app overview and selecting bulk import on top right section of the page. In bulk import section there is a CSV template in which you enter all your apps details and ad ids and upload it. While uploading, if your app already exist then only ad ids are inserted or overwritten. If you are trying to import an app of which brand you do not have rights to then it is skipped.

Import App from store

You can import your app from its related store (Google play or App Store) that will bring your app icon, category and other important information which are helpful for consoliads. Import App feature is only available after an application has been created and by going into your app's details. Import App only works one time for each version of your app to avoid extra hits.

Scenes and Ads

Scenes are groups for ad list, they represent each of your scene in your game. Scenes are added from unity editor and are uploaded on configure server form unity. Each scene has a failover Ad in case of any ad failed to show in that scene.

Ads List

Ads list can be modified any time and can have different ads for different regions and ads for all regions which optimizes your eCPM and revenue.

Show Ad mechanism

When showAd is called in unity there are two ways ads can be shown for the required scene.

Round Robin

Ad is shown one by one for each call. For example in first call first ad is shown and second call will show second ad and so on, and if an ad fails to show then the failover ad of that scene is shown.

Priority

Ad list is sorted based on each ad's priority you set and when showing ads 1st ad is shown every time and if it fails only then next ad is shown and so on through out the list. failover ad of that scene is not used in this case. NOTE: Priority mechanism is only supported for SDK v1.1.0 and above.

Sequence Template

If you want multiple apps or a single app to have particular scenes and ads then you can create a sequence template consisting of your desired scenes and ads and save it. Sequence template overwrites app scenes and ads, they can be applied in bulk to multiple apps or only to a single app.

Apps creative sets and frames
