Estimating Avails for Permutive Segments in Google Ad Manager

In this article

Step-by-step to verify Google Ad Manager avails

To ensure your Permutive segments have adequate impressions to flight your campaigns, we recommend you run a future forecast/avails check in Google Ad Manager (formerly DFP). 

Note: There is a waiting period of at least 2 weeks from the time you send your Permutive segment to Google Ad Manager, to when you will be able to generate avails.

Create a Google Ad Manager activation for an 'Everyone' segment in Permutive

You should begin by creating an 'Everyone' segment using the segment builder in the Permutive dashboard. Set the Behaviour to 'Pageview was performed' and click the slider in Activation syncs section to create a Google Ad Manager activation. Below is an example of how the segment should appear.

Verify the reaction was created by checking in the Activations tab. The name will appear as the '[segment code] → DoubleClick'

 Check Inventory in DFP for the 'Everyone' segment.

Google will need at least 1-2 weeks from the time you send your Permutive segment to Google Ad Manager to generate avails.

  1. From the Google Ad Manager homepage select Delivery → Line Items → Forecasting. 
  2. Select Display
  3. In the Delivery Settings section, set the date range to a future time span. 
  4. In the Ad Targeting section select Key-values on the left hand side. 

Then choose 'permutive' as the key and the segment you'd like to test (in this case 'Everyone') as the value
