4. May I provide Remerge with a single-user list for Android and iOS applications?
No, you may not, as Remerge does not support this option. Instead, ensure to generate a unique importing user list per application/audience (i.e., a unique file for iOS users and a unique file for Android users). For step-by-step instructions, visit our Method & Instructions page.
5. May I provide Remerge with a single user list containing all segments?
No, you may not, as Remerge does not support this option. Please ensure to separate your segments into different files before sending them to Remerge.
6. What information should be part of a user list?
Please ensure that your user list contains a list of relevant device IDs ONLY.
7. May I include an Identifier for Vendors (IDFV)?
No, you may not, as Remerge does not support this option. At this point, Remerge can ONLY ingest lists that contain an Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA).
8. Is it possible to exclude a specific user list?
Yes, definitely! You may easily exclude a user list by appending the words exclusion or holdout to the corresponding filename, as per the below filename examples:
9. May I split my update into multiple file uploads?
No, you may not, as Remerge does not support this option. Our system processes a single file per update and checks for a new file every four hours. Splitting your update into multiple files will result in having some files NOT processed, as our system will automatically process your last upload ONLY. Therefore, ensure to include ALL relevant segments in a single file upload.
10. How often do you initiate the automation process?
Remerge initiates a new automation process once a day. Then, the files are processed every four hours.
