App List Builder

Last Update:

App lists are collections of Chartboost app IDs you can use to exclude (but not target) low-performing or unwanted games from your campaigns. (To brush up on how to identify low-performing games, visit our app filtering page). (Note: App lists are optional.)

To create one, start by heading to the app list builder, then:

  • Enter a name for the list and pick iOS, Android, or Amazon from the Platform dropdown. You'll need to create separate app lists for each platform.
  • Click Choose File in the Select File field to upload your list. App lists must have a .csv extension, contain fewer than 800 app IDs, and should contain nothing but a single list of app IDs separated by line breaks. (We recommend using Excel or other spreadsheet editor to export your single column of IDs in .csv form.)
  • Hit Save, and you're done – you'll see your new list appear in the page's lower section

To overwrite 2, edit the name of, or delete an app list from your account, just click one of the three icons in the list's Actions column:

Using App Lists

Once you've created an app list, you can apply it to your campaigns via the Edit Campaign page's App Filtering tab:

After clicking the name of your app list, you'll see its entries populate in the same section, after which you can add/remove apps as needed.


Notes

1. Excel has a 1 million row limitation, but you can create a text-based CSV (or use our API) if you need to add additional devices to your list

2. Uploading a new file to an existing list will replace the original list

3. Downloads stop working after 7 days

4. You cannot delete lists that are currently used in active campaigns
