This document contains frequently asked questions that arise when using the Google Display & Video 360 data source. You can quickly navigate to a particular FAQ by using the table of contents below.
Did Google Display & Video 360 used to be called DoubleClick Bid Manager?
Why don’t I see a certain Insertion Order in the Display & Video 360 IO assignment screen?
When TapClicks shows Insertion Orders on your assignment screen, the number of Insertion Orders are limited to help with in-app performance. We request the Active Insertion Orders from the last 180 days. If the insertion order is older than 180 days you won’t see it on the assignment screen. You can, however, still connect older assignments using the blind assignment method. Details about that process can be found here.
I tried to connect and I got an error about Partner IDs. What do I do?
“Connection could not be cached due to the following error: You have too much data for API Server to generate a Line Item Report. To work around this limitation, you must provide a list of Partner IDs to TapClicks Technical Support.”
In this situation, there’s too much data for the system to be able to get a report from Display & Video 360 in a timely manner. As a result, we need the Display & Video 360 partner IDs (not the advertiser IDs) so that we can optimize the data fetches. Partner IDs from Display & Video 360 can be found on the screen below.

Once you have provided these Partner IDs to your Customer Success Manager or email@example.com, the team will work to optimize your mapping screen. In text form, just highlight, copy and paste.
What is the difference between Display & Video 360 and Display & Video 360 IO in TapClicks?
The only difference between Display & Video 360 and Display & Video 360 IO is how the assignment screen appears. Otherwise, all available data is the same.
- Display & Video 360 assigns by advertiser
- Display & Video 360 IO assigns by insertion order
What if I need data from Display & Video 360 that TapClicks doesn’t quite support?
There are a few ways to approach this situation.
1] Create a Smart Connector to bring data into your dashboard.

- This path could be used in the long term.
- Or you can use this path while waiting for an enhancement to the Display & Video 360 connector.
2] Submit a request to the product team to evaluate bringing this data into the Instant On connector.
- Make sure to include report extract examples so that we can review exactly the dimensions and metrics you’re looking for in your dashboard.
