Create and Manage Reports

Reports help you view, organize, and analyze your data. Large amounts of data can be easily put into tables and charts, to better help you visualize your results and spot meaningful patterns and trends. Your reports can be found under the Analytics menu at the top of the TikTok Ads Manager under Custom reports.

Note: You can see search terms and custom reports by going to Dimension, clicking Targeting, and selecting Ad Type. To learn more about Search Ads Toggle, refer to About Search Ads Toggle, FAQs for Search Ads Toggle, and About negative keyword match types.

Pre-defined report templates are a simpler alternative to building a Custom Report. These templates developed by TikTok make it easy to build reports with a professional look and feel.

  1. ​Click the Create button on the Reporting page, select From Template, and choose between Ad Group Performance or Ad Performance.

  2. ​The most relevant Dimensions and Metrics will be displayed based on your selected template. You can add, delete, or modify the Dimensions and Metrics as needed.

    1. ​If necessary, set up Scheduled Running according to the steps outlined in the Custom Reports section.

  4. ​Click Save and rename your report to finish.

Create Scheduled Reports

Scheduled Reports let you set a schedule to receive automatically generated reports that are delivered via email. You can designate up to 5 emails to receive the scheduled report.

You can choose how often your reports are delivered with the following options:


Scheduled Delivery


Every day


On Monday of every week

First Day of Every Month

The first day of every month

Last Day of Every Month

The last day of every month

The system sends the scheduled email immediately after it completes data processing. This process typically takes about 5 to 6 hours, depending on the volume of the data. Report emails should deliver around 5-6 AM, according to your ad account time zone.


  • ​Only users who have access to TikTok Ads Manager can download the report.

  • ​The Scheduled Report will be automatically canceled if the report is not downloaded by any recipient for 3 consecutive months.
