If you used a 3rd party authoring tool, such as a code editor or Adobe Animate, to build your Adhesion, proceed to set up your ad in Sizmek Ad Suite (SAS) .
Note: If you used Ad Builder to build your Adhesion, this set up is not required and you can proceed to sharing your ad. For more information, see Share Your Ads.
Before uploading your ad to SAS, verify that you have completed these prerequisites:
The folder that contains your assets does not include unnecessary files. For example:
Unused assets such as images, videos, or fonts.
Work files such as
Hidden files such as
Create a Workspace (zip file) for each ad. It is recommended that the zip file name matches the final name of the ad.
Each Workspace contains its default image (named Default or Backup). This image should be optimized and lightweight.
Note: Naming the Workspace and the default image are especially useful when using the Ad Creation Wizard to bulk upload your work; the Ad Name field and the Default field will be filled in automatically. For more information, see Set up Multiple Ads Using Ad Creation Wizard.
Setting up your ad requires that you start by uploading your Workspace to the Assets Library. Then, set up your ad based on the Workspace that you uploaded.
Select Creative > Ads.
Click New Ad > Blank Ad.
Give your ad a meaningful name.
In the Ad Format list, select Adhesion.
In the Creative Assets > Main Assets tab:
Select the Workspace folder and navigate to an uploaded Workspace.
Tip: SAS will default to this folder for the next step.
The fields should automatically be filled according to the ad data in your Manifest file (
config.js). If the fields are not filled, enter all of the required information manually.
Under Advanced Panel Settings, do the following:
Make sure Show Single Panel at a Time is selected.
Important: Make sure that you do not select Overwrite Creative Settings:Always auto-expand for the default panel. The required settings are already defined in the code, and ensure that when the ad serves in a web browser, the banner panel is used, and when the ad serves In-app, the banner is used.
To verify the variable names used in SAS with the variable keys in the
config.js file, see Create an Adhesion in a Code Editor.
You can upload and set up multiple ads in a single process using the Ad Creation Wizard. For more information, see Set up Multiple Ads Using Ad Creation Wizard.
You can set your Adhesion to serve in one of these loading modes:
Instant: The entire unit loads immediately. This is the default behavior.
Polite: A lightweight image loads first. The full ad loads after the publisher's page finishes loading.
For more information about polite loading, see Add Polite Load to your HTML Ads.
Besides the standard HTML ad interactions, the following are the custom interactions that can be tracked and measured in the reports that you pull.
Sent when users click the close icon on the top-right corner of the banner.
Send when users click the UserAction button from the expand panel.
