Categories and Groups

Campaigns are assigned a category and a group.  The category is shown to affiliates in the affiliate center and is used to tell them what kind of offer the campaign is.  Groups are used to organize campaigns internally and are not seen by affiliates.

You can manage the available groups through the "Campaign" drop-down menu.  The categories are system-generated and cannot be changed.

Groups

Current Groups

Current Groups allows you to add and re-assign your campaign groups.   If you re-assign a group, the group name is removed from the My Current Groups list and deleted from the system.

  1. From the My Current Groups drop-down field, select the group you want to re-assign.
  2. From the Re-Assign All Campaigns of the Current Group To drop-down field, select the new group you want the affiliates to go to.
  3. Select Re-Assign.

Add a Group

The Add a Group section allows you to add campaign groups.
