Using an Existing Campaign's Settings as a Template

You can use an existing campaign as a template for a new one. This option copies the campaign name, budget, start and end dates, objectives, and account team. The new campaign's media plan includes the original vendors, properties, contacts, line items, add-ons, and notes, but excludes proposals and messages. You can only select from a list of approved plans, and you can only select one media plan. If your campaign includes DSP line items, you can choose to include group and tactic-level details in the new campaign.

Note: Check the vendor details (contacts, terms and conditions, payee, and notes) when you create from an existing campaign. The default settings from the original campaign may require updates.

To create a new campaign from an existing one:

  1. Select Create campaign > Create campaign from existing.

  2. Select a campaign you want to use as a template. Use the Search box to find a specific campaign by name, ID, client, or brand. After selecting a campaign, you see a list of approved media plans.

  3. Click [+] to select the media plans you want to include in the new campaign.

    1. If the media plans include DSP line items, select Include DSP groups and tactics with optimization rules to include groups and tactics. If you select this option, the campaign must use the same brand as the original media plans.
  4. Click Next to open the campaign editor. Modify the campaign's information using the Details, Objectives, and Account Team tabs as required.

    Note: If you included DSP groups and tactics, you won't be able to edit the client and brand.

  5. Click Create to save your new campaign. If you're including groups and tactics, you see a summary modal of the groups and tactics that successfully copied. Click Done to return to the Campaign Overview page.
