Similar to DPA Catalogs, Automated Ads Catalogs require you to fill out a form with the right information. More importantly, you need to include the Data Source URL. If you already have an existing DPA Catalog at Hunch, you are given the option to import all the data from that particular catalog.

To do that, just make the proper selection in the Source option - in this case, From DPA Catalog

Item Filters

Let's give you a quick reminder: DPA Catalogs have Product Sets. Automated Ads Catalogs have Item Filters. Product Sets use the Facebook algorithm to run ads based on an unlimited number of products.

In contrast, Item Filters use the Hunch algorithm to filter out products. For example, you can easily create a catalog based on your top-selling products in the last 14 days.

This process automates your catalog management process, rather than having to go through each product manually. 

It will also make it easier for you to create your Templates. Hunch Templates are covered in this section
