FAQs

How long does it take until my conversions are showing in Microsoft Ads?

We Can Track pushes the conversion to Microsoft Ads close to real time. The integration process within Microsoft Ads usually takes a couple of hours but can also take up to one day.

Do I need to place Tracking Templates in order to see campaign data in We Can Track or Google Analytics?

You can set your own tracking templates but when you make use of Microsoft Ads Auto-tagging functionality, they will already place UTM parameters in your landing page URLs, so you won’t have to adjust your tracking template unless you want to change the values that will be used.
