Trying to connect to Facebook ad data

Hey everyone,

 

I'm trying to get data from Facebook Ads Manager loaded into PBI Desktop. I've tried using the built-in Facebook connector, but it's limited to Likes, Comments, Posts, etc. I need data about specfic Facebook Ad campaigns. Also, if there is a solution, can it be set to auto-refresh?

 

Thanks

Re: Trying to connect to Facebook ad data

Hi  @mpalha04 and others,

 

Take a look at my open sourced Power BI connectors

 

You can choose from 

- Facebook Ads insights connector

- Instagram Page insights connector

- LinkedIn Insights connector

- Facebook Page Insight connector

- Stripe connector (it's working, compared to the one built-in)

 

If you are not the do-it-yourself type - you can download fully functionable Power BI connectors on my company page.

They are 100% free to use.

 

If you want to return the favor, either add features to the existing Power BI connectors or add a new connector to the repository.

You can also check out my premium products - Especially the Google Analytics Free hit-level data connector.

 

Cheers,

Michael

Hi Michael

 

I used you Facebook Ads connector and it works perfectly. Thanks a lot. 

 

Is there a way that I can pull data by age and gender? The connector doesn't seem to be giving me this

Re: Trying to connect to Facebook ad data

Hi @michaelbilling -

 

Thanks so much for this. I'm using your FB Ads Insights connector, and I'm trying to find a way to make it 'trusted' data connector so I don't have to keep changing the security settings when I open the dashboard. Per my research, it looks like this can be done with a thumbprint ID associated with the connector. (See here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/connect-data/desktop-trusted-third-party-connectors) If one exists, would you be able to send it to me? If not, I'm going to try and create one.

 

Thanks so much!

Mickey
