Congratulations! You have connected your Apple Search Ads data to your TapClicks client records.
For new assignments between a data source and TapClicks client records, an initial data fetch will occur. Each data source has a different lookback period which determines the amount of historical data that is fetched (measured in months, weeks, or days). To view the lookback period for this service and the status of your data fetches as a whole, click Data Load Status in the Data Management menu on the left side of your dashboard. For more information about Data Load Status, please see this article.
