Schedule your adverts:
Over the past days i’ve been working on improving the new scheduler for ads.
This feature replaces the start and end time of adverts entirely and will allow you to show adverts in a very specific manner.
Advertiser wants to show an ad, on monday april 9th, tuesday the 10th between 1pm and 5pm, tuesday from 6pm till wednesday the 18th 7am and so on.
Currently – Not possible without manually updating the ad as it happens.
Soon-ish – Possible
And boom! epic scheduling feature!
Create as many schedules as you want. Create an as complex timetable as you want. This feature has been implemented today and will be tested over the coming days/weeks and optimized for speed and efficiency.
At long last, a way to export your data. I believe i’ve come up with the most simple UI possible that simply cannot go wrong for anyone.
Obviously this is a big feat and needs testing. Initial tests are good and we expect this to become a popular feature that will require a lot of fine tuning to satisfy
everyone most people. But this is a great start.
As you can see, you can choose from a drop down which month you want (or the whole year) and type in the year you want and click export.
The report is made and downloaded automatically.
Every Report page in AdRotate has a option like this. With the exception of Advertiser reports. They can only download an overview of their stats and therefor only have a simple “Export” button.
If you have ideas, comments or input on this one, voice it on the forum. *every* request will be looked at and weighed in.
