Use Adobe Campaign explorer

The Adobe Campaign explorer is accessible via the toolbar icon. It lets you access the Adobe Campaign all the Adobe Campaign capabilities, configuration screens and a more detailed view of some of the platform elements.

The Explorer workspace is divided into three zones:

1 - Tree: you can personalize the content of the tree (add, move, or delete nodes). This procedure is intended for expert users only. For more on this, refer to this section.).

2 - List: you can filter this list, run searches, add information, or sort data. Learn more.

3 - Details: you can display the details of the selected element. The icon in the upper right-hand section lets you display this information in full-screen format.

Folders and navigation tree

The navigation tree works like a file browser (e.g. Windows Explorer). Folders may contain sub-folders. Selecting a node displays the view corresponding to the node.

The view displayed is a list associated with a schema and an input form to edit the selected line.

To add a new folder to the tree, right-click the folder in the branch where you wish to insert a folder, and select Add new folder . In the shortcut menu, select the type of file to be created.

Folder configuration best practices

  • Use built-in folders

    Using the built-in folders makes it easier for people not involved in the project to use, maintain and troubleshoot the application. You should not create custom folder structures for recipients, lists, deliveries, etc., but use the standard folders such as Administration, Profiles & Targets, Campaign management.

  • Create sub-folders

    Place technical workflows under the standard folder: Administration / Production / Technical Workflows, and create subdirectories per workflow type.

  • Set a naming convention

    For example you can name the workflows in alphabetical order, so that they appear sorted in the order of execution.

    For example:

    • A1 – import recipients, starts at 10:00;
    • A2 – import tickets, starts at 11:00.
  • Create templates for users to start with

    Create delivery templates, workflow templates, campaign templates specific to users. This structure can save time and make sure that the right delivery mapping and typologies are used for each user.

Screen resolution

For optimal navigation and usability, Adobe recommends using a minimum screen resolution of 1600x900 pixels.

CAUTION

Resolutions under 1600x900 pixels are supported by Adobe Campaign.

In the Explorer workspace, if some parts of the Details zone appear to be truncated, expand it using the arrow on top of the zone or click the Enlarge button.
