The traffic section of the dashboard is one of the most interesting. It provides an overview of traffic, conversions and conversion minutes used and produced by your account. The interesting diagrams here are the last four:
These two charts give an overview of conversions done per day and per month. The daily conversion overview shows the amount conversions conducted in the past 31 days, while the monthly overview provides an overview of the past 12 months. Both charts list the successful conversions (light green) and conversions that caused an error (darker green).
The consumption of conversion minutes by day (dating back 31 days) and per month (dating back 12 months) are displayed in these charts.
The conversion history provides you with a list of conversions done in the past 24 hours. Using these links, you can re-download the converted files, use them for further conversion, or permanently delete them from our servers if you don’t want to wait until they are automatically deleted after 24 hours. Furthermore, you can access the conversions that did not work and provide our support team with the error number given on the page.
