Using Old Advertisements as the Basis for New Deliverables with Ad Storage
Sometimes you may want to use a previous ad’s information as a starting point for a new deliverable in a project. For example, your company may have done an amazing Christmas campaign last year and instead of recreating your deliverables, you could copy the old data over into your new project.
That’s why we’ve included the option to rerun previous projects from your ad storage. The ad storage library is a collection of any items you may have finalised from a previous campaign.
When you use previously stored deliverables from your Ad Storage, admation pre-populates any meta-data that was added to a previous file. You can then use the previous advertisement data – and not the imagery – as a basis for your new ad.
This guide is handy if you hadn’t added your deliverables when you created your project.To re-run ads from your ad storage directly, follow this guide instead.
If you need to create your project, do that first before following these steps. Once that's done, scroll down to your folder or sub-folder. If you’d like to add your deliverables to a sub-project, find out how to set up your sub-project folders here.
Once you’ve located your project or sub-project, click the Settings Cog icon, and click Create New Deliverables.
Click Browse Ad Storage.
Browsing the Ad Storage
The Ad Storage contains any deliverables you have previously approved and finalised within the system. You'll see a pop up, which will give you the option to select previously run ads using checkboxes in the top left corner of every old ad. Select the ads you'd like to use, then click Re-Run Selected.
You'll then have the option to Upload a File with a thumbnail image for this deliverable. Or you can add a file to your deliverable later, when you're ready to add a first version of artwork for your team to approve.
Click Add Deliverables once you're happy with your inputs.
You can also follow our guides on submitting artwork for approval once you’re ready to have your artwork reviewed.
