The amount of the budget.
The amount of under or over spent budget from the previous period that is being rolled over into this period.
This shows the sum of the target and any rollover as well the percentage of budget that has already been spent for the period, represented as a percentage figure beside the budget amount and as a progress bar below the budget amount.
Spend to date for the budget period
The expected final spend relative to the budget, if the daily pacing remains the same.
A pacing percentage above 100% indicates that the campaign(s) are on track to exceed budget.
A pacing percentage below 100% indicates that the campaign(s) are on track to spend less than the budget.
For instance, if your budget is $1,000 and the pacing is 95%, you can expect the final spend for this budget to be approximately $950. This indicates that you could increase the daily spend for the campaigns to reach budget.
If your budget is $1,000 and the pacing is 110%, you can expect the final spend for this budget to be approximately $1,100. This indicates that you could decrease the daily spend for the campaigns to avoid going over budget.
