Filtering by Campaign Name using Facebook Ads Plugin on Data Studio

I'm looking to pull impression by month and filter them by campaign name. The Facebook Ads Supermetrics plug in is letting me pull this through to Data Studio, but when applying the Filter and doing Campaign Name 'Contains' "X term", it's returning 0 results, which is untrue. 

  • Hi Olly,

    Thanks for your message, and sorry about the error. Have you double checked the campaign name? If you have multiple campaigns with the same name, this filter won't work. Please try filtering by campaign id - does that bring you the expected result?

    Best regards,

  •  Hello,

    I am trying to do the same --> apply filters on campaign names ---> contains "word" but I get no data even if there is.

    How can I resolved this?

    Thank you,


  • Hi Chloe,

    Can you please attach screenshots of your filter settings and the results you get and should get with that? Thanks!

  • Hi all, 

    I'm also experiencing this problem. I was able to make it work using the campaign ID instead of campaign name field. 

  • Hello.

    Having a similar problem to those outlined above. I recently followed this excellent tutorial: and set-up the Sheets and Dashboard etc.

    Now I want to replicate it and show only certain campaigns. Ideally I'd filter this by Campaign Name - but in the 'Filter' dropdown list in the Supermetrics sidebar plug-in I cannot see 'Campaign Name' as a filter option.

    After reading this forum post, I looked for 'Campaign ID' but that's not there either.


  • Hi,

    thanks for your question.

    All metrics and dimensions should be included in the Filter dropdown, and as I'm checking Facebook Ads filtering options, I can see Campaign Name and ID there as well. Could you please double check? It's a bit of a jungle as they are not purely alphabetically listed, but split into categories, so it might be a bit hard to see the option.

    Hope that helps!
