Design and Sections
This is an elegant dashboard without many tables and scorecards to distract you from the main focus; how much have you spent and how should you plan your future ad spend. There are 3 main sections:
Pacing gauge and daily spend values
This is the main focus section of the Snapchat Ads Desktop Budget Pacer dashboard. Big gauge represents how much you spend so far into that term and next to it, there are planned daily spend and actual daily spend values. This section will show you what you have planned and what you have done.
Suggested daily spend
This box shows how much you should spend on upcoming days to balance your budget and the amount of the increase. For example, if your monthly budget is $1.000, you spend $900 until the 20th day, then this box will tell you to spend $10/day.
Budget spend %
This box reminds you of the ratio of the budget spent so far, how much was the planned budget and how much has been spent.
