New Uniques – new unique devices reached by campaigns in a given time period.
Placement ID - the ad placement within an app as determined by the Exchange sending the ad request. For example, an app will have two or more placement IDs when:
a) the apps' inventory is available through multiple exchanges (each exchange will have at least one placement ID)
b) the app has different ad placements, either for different creative types (e.g. banner will be a different placement than rewarded video) or different ad placements in the app (for example, in a game an interstitial appearing between levels may be a different placement from an interstitial appearing when you start a new game)
c) the app uses a waterfall based ad server / mediation layer and the respective Exchanges automatically create different placement IDs for different waterfall positions.
Note: It was previously called App ID
Raw Logs – impression and click raw logs contain extra information which is not available in the UI. Raw logs can be downloaded from the UI as CSV export files in Reports section.
Retained Users – The number of unique users who returned to the app on the day(x) after install or reattribution. Helps to understand how many users engaged with the app after an install/reattribution. This metric is used in the context of Cohort.
Retention Rate – Percentage of unique users who returned to the app on the day(x) after install or reattribution. This metric will be useful to understand the drop-off for different Cohorts of users.
Revenue – In-App Events which contain a Revenue value such as a purchase.
Revenue – This metric when used in the context of Cohort is defined as Total revenue generated by users from day(0) till day(x) after install or reattribution.

Wins – auctions won.
Survival Rate – ratio of Impressions / Wins. Not all won auctions result in impressions, due to multiple reasons such as publisher waterfall setup, in-app parallel bidding, caching and more.
