|Date||Feature||Description||For More Information|
|5 March 2021||Package Settings||A new Pacing Fill Strategy option, 'Slightly Ahead," is available and is the default for new packages. This strategy accelerates delivery so that it’s 55-65% complete halfway through the flight duration.||See “Package Settings.”|
|17 March 2021||Help||The “Campaign Management” chapter has been expanded to include many more procedures and references.||In the table of contents, open the “Campaign Management” chapter and subsections.|
|10 March 2021||Inventory||You can no longer create Smart Ad Serving deals using VAST tags. Instead, ask your publisher if they can run your private deal via a deal ID. You can import deal IDs directly from the publisher using the Deal ID Inbox or enter your deal details manually.
Your existing Smart Ad Serving deals are still available but will be sunset later this year.
