You may choose to either create a campaign with a single slot, or multiple slots (to allow for different media to play at different dates during the overall campaign).
Every campaign requires at least one 'campaign slot'. A slot allows you to upload media and assign it to the campaign. The slot may have just one piece of media assigned, or can have multiple items assigned to it - although the campaign will only use one Inventory position in the playlist, so to move through all of the content listed, the player will either cycle through the content, or randomly shuffle the media (one media item per loop).
Slots are also useful to allow 'teaser' campaigns to be created. Dates within the campaign can be selected for start/end dates for a slot, enabling content to be scheduled to reveal the final media for a product launch or similar.
Finally, slots are also useful at linking similar content together. This is especially useful for long-term campaigns (like brand-led media), or for Filler content. Slots allow this functionality.
To create a single slot campaign, press ‘Create Campaign’ from the sidebar menu.
To create a campaign with multiple slots, press ‘View Campaigns’, then at the top right corner, click + Create Campaign.
Fill in your Campaign Details
Enter a Title for the campaign
Enter a Description
Choose your start and end date of the Campaign.
Type - Choose the Campaign type applicable to this campaign.
Image - Not required, but allows you to visualise the campaign when viewing the list
Client - This allows you to choose the client account who owns the campaign to assist with tracking. In addition, the client can also be invited to upload and manage their own content for any campaigns assigned to them.
(option) Filler Content - If you are using the option in your players for a fixed number of inventory spaces, DOOHAd will allow campaigns to be assigned up to the maximum number set for each screen. Any inventory spaces which are not filled, DOOHAd inserts filler content to pack out the playlist to the same fixed length for every loop. If this campaign is not a 'sold' advertising campaign but is in fact a filler campaign, you need to enable the option here so that the campaign can be used as filler and does not utilise an inventory slot when assigned to a player.
Then, press Save
The campaign will be created with a single slot, playing for the campaign dates selected above, and you can then choose the media you require to play in that slot (SEE UPLOADING MEDIA TO A SLOT, below).
If however you have chosen to have multiple slots, you will now need to make the slots.
