The ad set manager is your main screen to view all the banners created within the same set. It allows you to change shared properties, add additional banners, download them and if you have the connections set up, push to Weborama Campaign Manager to use the banners in a campaign.
The adset manager is divided in three parts, the properties and banners panel on the left, the shared elements panel on the right and the overview panel in the middle.
Properties and Banners panel
The Properties pannel allows you to view data regarding the adset and allows you to change the name.
By default, the system will show you all the banners that are in the adset. You can select a single banner, which will then show you the shared elements it uses on the right. You can add more banners by clicking the button "add banner"on the bottom of the list.
The overview panel shows all the relevant banners at the moment. This can be influenced by two menus:
- The banners panel: if you click on a banner, it will show you only the selected banner
- The Elements panel: clicking any of the elements will filter down the overview to show only the banners that use the selected element.
Shared elements panel
The elements panel will show all elements that have been added to the library of this adset. When an element is added to a banner in the editor, the user has to choice to add them to the library or not. By default, this setting is on, but can be switched off in the editor. Clicking any of these shared elements will show the banners that use this specific element, along with a panel that allows you to edit shared properties in all banners.
Deleting Shared elements
By default, you cannot delete a shared element, unless the element is used by 0 banners. This is done to ensure that whatever you do decide to delete is deliberate and not used.
When you click any library element on the right, another panel will show up on the right, called the properties panel. This panel, where applicable, will show you two things: Shared properties, and if it is supported by the element, banner specific properties. The shared properties will change the settings across all banners that use these values, such as text color, the value of the text field and fonts.
Banner Specific Properties
Some elements, such as buttons and text fields have specific things that you should be able to tweak, on a banner level, without going into the editor. For example, if you have a particularly long piece of text that doesn't look good in a skyscraper, you can make the font size smaller, so that everything is still visible.
Note: Changes made to the adset are not saved until you click the save button.
