Recent Data Limitations

In order to deliver these large reports quickly, the platform must periodically preprocess and consolidate campaign data. Consequently, recent campaign data, data collected from events occurring in the previous six hours may or may not be available in reports.

If you need up-to-the-minute reporting data, you can always run reports in the Yahoo DSP console. To learn more, see Insights.
