Creating Campaigns

You have two options for creating a campaign:

  • Creating a campaign from scratch

  • Creating a campaign by duplicating, renaming and editing an existing campaign

When duplicating a campaign, only the basic campaign data (general information) will be copied, but no content or target assignments.

As a security measurement, all newly created campaigns are deactivated by default. For a campaign to be visible in the storefront, you need to activate it first by selecting the Enabled check box on the Properties tab.

Creating New Campaign

To create a new campaign from scratch:
  1. Select the channel from the context selection box, then select Marketing | Campaigns.
    This opens the campaigns manager displaying a list of all campaigns for the current channel.
  2. Click New.
  3. Provide general campaign information.
    Specify a name and a description for the campaign. The name will be used throughout Commerce Management to refer to the campaign.
  4. Schedule the campaign.
    Specify a start and end date/time for the campaign. The specified times constitute the maximum time frame for all content and promotions assigned to the campaign.
