Advertiser Groups

Advertiser groups provide a simple way to group advertisers into a folder-like mechanism for easy filtering. You can also use advertiser groups to set up default custom views. For example, you can categorize groups of advertisers by vertical, region, or another category that suits your business needs.

Creating an advertiser group is optional. If you create an advertiser group, then you need to associate every advertiser under a seat with one of the advertiser groups. To create advertiser groups, you need Seat Ops permissions.

Check out Manage Users for information on user permissions.

You create advertiser groups on the Seat Settings page.

To create an advertiser group:

Do the following:

When you create a deal or run a report, you see the advertiser group name in the drop-down list as follows:
