Adding an Externally Approved Asset to Your Ad Storage Library
Sometimes you may want to store old adverts on the admation platform, even if they weren’t run through the system. If you need to approve these items before they are added to your Ad Storage, visit this guide.
To add an externally approved asset, go to Ad Storage and click New Final Asset.
If the item(s) you want to upload have already been externally approved (or don't need to be approved), click the Direct Upload button and follow the prompts.
Entering Asset Project Data
The system will prompt you to fill in details for your asset as if it were a project. This is so that the advertisement you're directly uploading into admation has the same details filled in as any other project that would have been finalised from admation to end up in the Ad Storage.
Once you've filled in your details, click Next Step. You'll then need to upload your assets. Click Browse to search your computer for the file(s) or drag and drop them into the outlined box as needed.
Click Next Step again to head to step 3.
In this section, you will need to add meta-data for this item, which essentially means anything that can help make the item searchable in the Ad Storage. Fill this in properly to help you find your assets later! If you've added more than one file, you can check out this guide for editing metadata as a batch.
Once all of your asset information is filled in, click Next Step to review your inputs. You'll see the name of your item, a thumbnail image and its type.
Click Save Assets to save your item to the Ad Storage. Please ensure that your inputs are right as the Ad Storage isn't designed to allow for deletion of items. Once you've saved everything, the item(s) will be accessible in the Ad Storage. Check out this guide for searching for assets in the Ad Storage.
