Working with ads

Editing ads

You can find an overview of all advertisements currently in the publication at the sidebar on the flatplan, or in the Ads section at the top menu.

Mousing over the ad will show an Edit button. This will allow you to edit the specifications you chose when creating the ad, and mark the ad as complete.

Ads assigned to you will be shown on your dashboard.

Ad process

An ad is initially set to be In Progress. When the Salesperson has uploaded the final content for it, the status of the ad is simply set to Complete.

The upper status bar on the flatplan shows the status of all articles and ads on a page. The ad status colors are as follows:

  • Yellow - In progress
  • Red - Overdue (according to the set deadline set)
  • Green - Marked as Complete by the editor


Getting an overview of all ads

At the top-right corner of the Ad view, you'll find “The Big Picture”. Here you can see what is happening with all ads in the publication.

You can see the following:

  • Ads sold - Ads with the Advertiser field filled out will be counted as sold.
  • Ads completed - This will show the number of ads that has their status as Complete.
  • Pages of ads - This will sum up the fractions of ads. If you have a 1/1 and a 1/2 ad, they will be counted as 1.5 full pages of ads.
