Facebook Ads/Campaigns - Data Analysis, Transformation

Table of Contents

2. After clicking on “Use Template” in the automated dashboard, a dialog box will appear, allowing you to select your Facebook Ads account if you have already connected it to Japio.

Aim/Objective/Goal

The goal of this case study is to demonstrate how we can use Japio to transform the data and use it wherever needed, maybe the transformed data would be used to train a model or use in an external BI tool like PowerBI, Tableau. After transforming the data in Japio we can also visualize it in the form of various metrics and dashboards. This is all you can do without a coding skill using the Japio platform. In the below section we will compare one of the kaggle articles where user had to use coding skills (python) to analyze, clean & transform the data. In the later section we will demonstrate how you can achieve the same using Japio without any coding.  

Lets see how user had to use python coding for analyzing, cleaning, transforming & visualizing the data in one of the kaggle article
