What can advertiser user accounts do?
An advertiser account can access all statistics related to their account. They cannot manage or access information about zones or publishers, even the ones assigned to them. Advertiser accounts also cannot upload items to the Media Library. Only admins and managers with that permission can upload items to the Media Library.
Advertiser accounts can also access the account's conversion tag, which is used to track conversions. You can also permit an advertiser account to schedule campaigns.
Advertiser statistics are found in the Statistics Reports and Advertiser sub-sections within the Statistics section. You can access these by clicking on Statistics on the left hand navigation pane. Advertisers can create custom reports, save settings, and download their data using these sub-sections.
Scheduling a new ad
A scheduled ad will notify the admin of the AdButler account, giving them the option to approve the ad and assign it to an existing campaign or zone.
The scheduling form is on the first page when the advertiser logs in. It allows the advertiser to set a quota, a time frame, their contact email, the destination, and either the location of the creative or the HTML code. However, as previously noted, advertiser users cannot upload ad creatives.
