  5. Next, set up the field mappings to start your sync. Microsoft Ads (Bing) needs at least three of the following fields mapped: Conversion Name, Conversion Time, and Microsoft Click ID. Let's begin with Conversion Time. Choose the field from your table that contains the date and time of the offline conversion.

    Important: The date and time must be within the last 90 days and value must be in Coordinated Universal Time (e.g. 2020-04-30T17:02:35.6853793Z)

  7. Next up, let’s map Conversion Name. Pick the field from your table that holds the conversion goal name.

    Important: Ensure you create the Conversion Name beforehand in Microsoft Ads. Click here to learn how. Also, note that uploading conversions requires a 2-hour wait after creating the goal. Failure to wait may result in offline conversion data not being applied.

Note: Microsoft Click IDs (MSCLKIDs) are unique identifiers assigned to each click on your Microsoft Advertising ads. MSCLKIDs are automatically appended to your landing page URL when someone clicks on your ad, provided that auto-tagging is enabled. If you haven't enabled it yet, click here to learn how.
