Our Specle plugin automates the process of importing ads from Specle and creating the placeholders necessary for situating the ads within the edition.
1. Create your edition
Ensure your Edition Date is set correctly matching the adverts you wish to pull in.
Then, if you have the Specle plug-in activated you will see the option to import Specle Adverts at the bottom of the edition settings. If you do not see this, contact your onboarder to enable this for you.
2. Fetch your ads from Specle
Click the "Fetch" button. This will open a new tab and contact the Specle API to fetch the adverts on your account, we will then sort through all of the adverts and show relevant ads from Specle for this edition based on matching the advert date and edition date.
We provide some metrics at the top to indicate how many ads we've fetched and matched, as well as how many duplicate ads were found. Duplicate ads won't be shown in the list of ads as they already exist as placeholders.
3. Select which ads to import
Every ad in the table has a check box on the right, check this for every ad you want to import into your edition. We provide a thumbnail and description for you identify which ad is which. There's also a checkbox at the bottom of the page to select all ads from the table, use this if you're confident that everything that's been fetched should be imported.
4. Import your ads
Once you're happy with your selection, click the import button at the bottom of the page. This will take all of the selected ads and create placeholders for each one, essentially completing the process of importing your ads.
5. Arrange your ads in the edition flatplan
As before, the location of your ads in the edition is controlled by the flat plan, accessible from the Editions menu item. Drag and drop your ads into the correct position, et voila!
