Advertisers like to have evidence that their ad campaign has been delivered in the advertising space they purchased. Traffickers can take a screenshot in their browser and send it to the advertiser. This manual process is time consuming if an ad has been delivered in a multitude of positions. To facilitate this process, Adhese has released a new feature: Automatic screenshots. This feature makes a screenshot for each combination of a booking, creative and live preview URL and displays it in a table – ready to download. 

Automatic screenshots by Adhese

To activate this feature, contact Support. 

Simply put, Adhese automatically creates a screenshot for each individual combination of a booking, creative, and preview URL. Every morning, Adhese checks for screenshots to be made by examining if a planned booking starts that day. If a planned booking is intended to start running that day, Adhese will take a screenshot and displays it in the appropriate Screenshots tab. 

Viewing screenshots

You can view these automatically created screenshots at three different levels: campaign, booking, and creative. Each level produces a different set of screenshots.

At each level a table is shown that consists of rows that present the screenshots and their properties. To enlarge a screenshot, click a thumbnail from this table. You can easily switch between the different screenshots by using the left and right arrows keys or clicking the left and right arrows on the screenshot.
