When using BannerFlow Scheduling, it is important to have a backup banner set in place. This ensures that you always have a banner that will be shown if you decide to alter or remove something from the schedule.
Using placeholdersIn the scheduling function, you can plan banner sets to run for a designated period. When inserting a banner set to the calendar, you are required to set placeholders. Placeholders are essentially a blank canvas designed to run a particular banner set of your choice. Each placeholder has a particular size as well as a translation and creates its banner tag. This is the canvas in which you will be working within and will make your alterations.
How to create a scheduleCreating a schedule is a simple process of dragging and dropping your banner set to the calendar and extending it between the dates required. You can have multiple banner sets running on the same date.
You can click on these elements and select if they are to be active or paused. If you pause a banner set, the next one that is designated in the queue will be used. If there is no other banner on the scheduled date, it will revert to your backup banner set.
There are a few methods that you can follow when it comes to creating an approval process change with scheduling.
Scheduling approval process method
We recommend that you first and foremost, create a backup banner set.
Backup Banner set: Once your scheduled banner set comes to an end this ensures that you banner does not revert to a blank white canvas, and there is always a banner in place. The placeholder will only be filled if the size and translation are the same in the banner sets.
Eg. English 250x250 will not fill a placeholder of English 250x300.
