After this to complete the banner follow these steps:

  1. Choose if the banner will be Active, Paused or Expired, from the beginning.
  2. Name of the banner - set the title for the banner, this will be visible for external public once the banner is live.
  3. Short description - set a brief description for the banner, this will be visible for external public once the banner is live.
  4. Description - set a fuller description for that banner.
  5. Show advanced settings - clicking this visualizes a JSON field to type in a JSON code in order to specify more precise conditions.
  6. Expiration - set the expiration period of the banner as a date From-To when it should be active. Additionally, choose the number of Clicks and Views that the banner will be able to generate.

    The Views setting means that once customers reach the online page the banner is displayed on, this is counted as one view.

    Additionally, when a banner has an embedded URL, the Clicks setting means how many times it allows to be clicked, in order for that URL to be reached.

    Reaching one of these limits, will result in the expiration of the banner.

  7. URL - in the case you would like the banner to be clickable and redirect to a specific page, type its URL in here. Additionally, choose whether clicking on that banner will open the URL in a new window or the same window.

  8. Banner - add the image for the banner by a simple upload from your local machine.
  9. When all done, save changes, and the banner is created.

The next step is to place the Banner onto a specific location in the system.
