App Activity
App Activity audience is a Custom Audience option that allows you to create an audience of users who have completed certain events within your app. 

Available events: Activate, Register, Purchase, Day 2 Retention, Checkout, Add to Cart and View Content.

With this type of Custom Audience, you can target your ads to people who have previously used your app, but whom you want to engage in further with.

Note: App Activity Audience is now auto-refreshed, for more details please see Custom Audience Auto-Refresh.

Prerequisite of Using This Feature

Event Set up: Configure app events and access to post back event data to TikTok on your third-party tracking platform. 

Please ensure that you turn on the in-app events option in your third-party tracking platform for the App Activity audience to work properly. Once turned on, the "Install" event will be posted back by default unless you configure it for other events.
