FAQ and Troubleshooting

πŸ“˜

Good to know

These are general troubleshooting guidelines. Refer to each integration's guidelines for specific guidelines.

  • Why is the integration Event log shows errors?

    Follow the article that will help you troubleshoot your conversions.
  • How long does it take to see conversions in the Facebook Event Manager?

    About 15-20 minutes.
  • Conversions are not reported under the correct campaigns

    Anytrack reports conversions based on Last Click and with unlimited attribution window, while Ad Platforms have their own attribution models and windows, and do not provide an API endpoint that would allow to attribute the conversions to specific ads, ad sets or campaigns.
  • AnyTrack Dashboard doesn't show data.

    Check the Campaign Reports as you'll see real time data. Dashboard first time sync can take a few hours.
  • Not tracking the correct conversion names

    Check that your Event mappingevent mapping is accurate and adjust it accordingly.
  • I get warning about duplicate conversions in Facebook Event Manager

    Check that you've disabled any other system sending conversion data to Facebook. Anytrack sends only server side events. So if you see Browser events it means that an other system is sending data.
  • Why do I see a Low match rate in the Facebook Event Manager?

    • The match rate depends on the conversion data you receive from your integrations. For example, if you're getting conversions from Shopify, your match rate will be high since we collect product and customer data and forward them to your Facebook Conversion API. On the other hand, if you are an affiliate marketer you don't have access to customer data so the matching parameters will be only those available on the browser and server-side events sent by your integration.
    • If you're an affiliate marketer, your match rate will never be "great" since you don't have access to the customer personal data.
    • Note however, that the match rate is only an indication of the quality of the data you send, but does not prevent attribution to be accurate.
  • Campaign metrics are not accurate

    • Ad campaign metrics are imported on an hourly basis. So what you see in AnyTrack will always show some discrepancy with your ad accounts.
    • Anytrack collected data (sessions, new visitors and conversion events) are reported in "near real time". The Campaign Reports are built out of the UTM tracking parameters AnyTrack collects when visitors hit your website. If your reports are misaligned, please check that all your ads carry the recommended UTM Tracking template
