After configuring your Facebook Ad account, Data sync starts - you can check performance from the same page. There are various Status for this stage-

  • SUCCESS - Data sync is complete. You're taken directly to Marketing reports.

    • If you see no data after this step, wait for sometime and refresh the page - ping us on in-app chat if problem persists.

  • FAILED - Data sync failed. This generally happens if Ad account is not correctly configured or there's a permission issue. Ping us on in-app chat or email us at if you need assistance.
