Setting Up Agency Library Metrics

Your custom metric calculations should make your templates more scalable instead of more restrictive. Global Library Metrics are custom calculations that live outside of the templates. They can be brought into a template from a universal list. The way metrics are calculated is also customizable on an account by account basis allowing you the flexibility of using one template for multiple accounts even if those accounts calculate a given metric differently. This article explains how to create Library Metrics at the agency setup level, how to customize the Metrics at the account level, and how to insert the Metrics into a template.
