After setting up a new table, an empty row already awaits first entries. At this point it is essential to understand the meaning of every column and column set. The most important columns are described briefly. These column names have developed to be our best-practice from years of experience in the creation of text ads. However, apart from “name” and “status” the usage of these columns is optional.
This feature works in the same manner as the feed import. Click “Import Feed” to import a feed. The article about Feeds explains it in far more detail. Learn more
Note: Please note that the binding between name and id values will stay. If you want to get rid of that, please contact us.
Imagine to enter “nike” as a brand into the name column. If this is the first entry it gets the ID 1. Now, if you add more rows, remove the first row and add a new row entering “nike” again, the new entry “nike” will have the ID 1 again. The Campaign Suite remembers the combination of names and IDs. This information is also present in reactivated tables.
If more than one column has set to be sorted, the order in which the sorting has been activated will determine, which sorting will be prioritised.
Example: In this example the ‘alternative’ column is sorted alphabetical and the ‘alias’ column is sorted reverse alphabetical. Thus the sorting of the ‘alias’ column only changes the order for entries having identical entries in the ‘alternative’ column.
Example: It is also possible to filter for two or more words and numbers at once within one column. If a column entry matches either of the set filters, it will be displayed.
Special Filters can be used to filter the table for ‘empty’ entries within a column. which has more than a certain number of characters. Numerical columns (of type decimal/whole number) have the special filters “Greater than”, “Less than”, and “Between # and #”, while the non-numerical columns can be filtered for entries, which have more than a certain number of characters (“Greater than # chars”). Select all of these filters from the drop-down, which unfolds, when clicking on the search bar of a column.
- Structure changed (e.g. column added/removed, relations added/removed)
- Dynamic rule (a dynamic rule has been applied)
- Restore operation (only if there have been changes since the last backup)
- Table import
- Feed import
- Empty table
- Table deleted (will only be available if the table is being reactivated)
Additionally there will be an automatic backup of changes like adding a new row, changing entries etc. every 3 days (if changes were applied). The last possiblity is to do a manual backup.
Step 1: Create a backup or access previous backups
To do a manual backup of the table or access previous backups click on “Backup” in the far right of the tool bar. Click “Backup now” to make a “Manual backup”, which will appear in the list of backups shortly after.
Step 2: Select a backup to restore
Step 3: Choose to restore with or without relations
The only thing to do left, is to choose whether to restore the backup with or without the relations set previously. The information in the pop-up helps to decide if the relations are still required or not. Finalize the backup by choosing either option.
Optional step: Undo the restoring
Tthe Campaign Suite also creates a backup before restoring one. If a backup has been restored by mistake or the restoration does not lead to the expected result, the state before the restore operation can be reached by selecting “Restore operation” from the drop-down.
