[deprecated]AdEx Tutorial: Adding an Ad Unit to an Advertising Campaign

In a previous tutorial we already explained that campaigns in the AdEx DApp are there to help you organize your active, running ads — but settings like targeting, time frames and bids are set on an ad-unit level.

If you would like to link certain ad units to a particular campaign, there are two ways to do that — by creating a brand new ad unit within the campaign, or by linking an existing unit and a campaign.

Option 1: Create new unit in a campaign

Step 1: Go to the “Campaigns” section of your account.

Step 2: Select the one you want to work with and click on “View”.

Step 3: Once you’ve opened the campaign, click on the orange link that reads “Add new unit to this campaign”.

Step 4: Make sure that the “New ad unit” tab is selected (it’s the default tab).

Step 5: From there on, the steps replicate creating a new unit from the “Ad units” section of your account (see detailed tutorial here):

Step 6: Once you’ve saved the ad unit, it will show in the campaign.

If you have already created your campaign and your ad units separately, you can link them to each other.

Step 1: Open the campaign to which you want to add a unit or more, then select the “Existing ad unit” tab:

Step 2: Click on the little green plus sign next to the unit you’d like to add to the campaign:

The unit will then be added to the campaign.
