IS it possible to get actual reporting data without the delay using by_hour_of_day dimension
We are requesting reporting data using the by_hour_of_day dimension. Each start of the hour. And we found out that the values for that same hour are changing from while to while. Can you please tell us, when is the best time to request actual reporting data for the hour that passed. Thanks in advance

Finalized state of the API reporting stats
I have a question when the active Taboola ads stats (clicks, impressions and spend) become stable and final. Each day we are downloading Top Campaign Content API reports for today, yesterday, day before yesterday etc. All stats older that 4 days are cached and considered to be final. But for some campaigns it seems not to be enough and we still see some small discrepancies compared to the latest Taboola dashboard UI result. Updating the old cached stats through the API fixes the issue. Am I wrong the stats to become stable on the 4th day?

Reporting delay through API
Hi, is there any delay in reporting through API for clicks / spend that took place ? For example, if there's click / spend event that takes place now, how soon is this information available for the reporting API ? Thanks

Questions on Spend data
Hi there, are the Spend numbers coming from Taboola’s API ever inaccurate, in terms of costs related to real-time clicks? Are they ever ahead or behind, or inflated to predict Spend associated with future clicks? We’re seeing hourly data that reflects the possibility of Spend increasing before the clicks associated with it come through. Also, what time zone Taboola’s API is using? Thanks!

Retroactively changing data
Hi everyone! There’s the following note in API guide: “It’s important to note that data in Taboola reports can (and will) change retroactively during the Taboola billing cycle. This means that when fetching report data from Taboola for a data warehouse or BI solution, the data for the entire billing cycle (current calendar month + previous calendar month up to the 5th in any given month) should be periodically refreshed.” Does it mean that if we update report data daily, then today (for example) we need to request data for the period 5th of Jan - today? 2. There is a field “last_used_rawdata_update_time” in response. What does this value stand for? Does it indicate the date when the report was lastly updated? So if today we get a report with last_used_rawdata_update_time = 6th of Feb then we don’t need to update our DWH as nothing changed since this date?
