If you used a code editor to build your Interstitial, proceed to set up your ad in Sizmek Ad Suite (SAS) .

Note

Note: If you used Ad Builder to build your Interstitial , this set up is not required and you can proceed to sharing your ad. For more information, see Share Your Ads.

Prerequisites

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 .psd, .fla, or .scss.

    • Hidden files such as thumbs.db (Windows) or .DS_Store (Mac).

  • 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. For an Interstitial, the image must be a 1 x1 image.
