Advertisers who complained that it takes way too long to export information from multiple Facebook accounts in Ads Manager into Excel worksheets can now take a deep breath.

Facebook Friday released Facebook Ads Manager for Excel, an add-in for the Microsoft Office spreadsheet program that speeds the process of exporting data and campaign reporting.

The social network said in a Facebook for Business post:

Starting today, Facebook Ads Manager for Excel will allow advertisers to quickly run a single report to download data from multiple ad accounts.

With FAME, advertisers will be able to build their report templates in Excel and download performance data directly into sheets, combining data from multiple Facebook ad accounts without manual integration. Information can be refreshed every 15 minutes to ensure that your data is always up to date.

It’s easy to create and download reports using your Facebook account. Use the predesigned templates to quickly pull common metrics or customize your reports to get exactly what you need to know.

FAME is available for free downloading via the Microsoft Office Store.
