Adcenter Bug reporting issue webpublisher msg:3560095 10:41 pm on Jan 28, 2008 (gmt 0) If I go into campaigns and see the total spend for month to date should the report be the same for the same period i.e. Month to date? I would assume so - this is how it works for Adwords and Yahoo so wonder if this is a bug in Adcenter?

The Campaign Summary page is a snapshot of campaign data updated at 1am PDT each day.
Reports run from the Report Center are much more accurate if you want an up-to-date report for Month-To-Date at any given hour of the day. They should be accurate to within a couple of hours.

Many thanks for the explanation.
Unfortunately this means a user has to heavily rely on reports.
The campaign view should give the data in realtime or at least just an hour or so behind. This is how we are all used to working in Adwords and why it is a pain to use Adcenter.
I shouldn't have to go to reports (least because they take forever) but instead I should be able to have the data I want in front of me.
Anyway thanks for your help because I have finally grasped why I have a poor user experience - in a nutshell Adcenter is a tool that works against my best interest.
Please pass this onto your development team because once they crack this the user experience will vastly improve.
