Once connected to Adobe Campaign, browse the various capabilities using links in the navigation bar.

Campaign elements are found in the Campaigns tab: here you can see an overview of the marketing programs, campaigns, and their sub-sets. A marketing program is made up of campaigns, which are made up of deliveries, tasks, linked resources, etc. In the context of marketing campaign management using Campaign, the information concerning deliveries, budgets, reviewers, and linked documents are found in the campaigns.

The Browsing block of the Campaigns tab offers various entries, depending on modules installed on the instance. As an example, you can access:

  • Campaign calendar: calendar of plans, marketing programs, deliveries, and campaigns. Refer to Campaign calendar.
  • Campaigns: access to the campaigns contained in all marketing programs.
  • Deliveries: access to the deliveries linked to the campaigns.
  • Web Applications: access to web applications (forms, landing pages, etc.).
For more on the overall Adobe Campaign ergonomics, permissions and on profile management functionalities, refer to this section.
All functionalities related to channels and deliveries are detailed in this section.

Controlling a campaign controlling-a-campaign

Dashboard dashboard

For each campaign, jobs, resources and deliveries are centralized in a single screen - the dashboard - which lets you manage marketing actions in collaboration with others.

The dashboard of a campaign is used as a control interface. It accesses the main campaign creation and management stages directly: deliveries, extraction files, notifications, budgets, etc.

With Adobe Campaign you can set up collaborative processes for the creation and approval of the various stages of marketing and communication campaigns: approval of the budget, target, content, etc.

The configuration of campaign templates is presented in Campaign templates.

Schedule schedule

A campaign centralizes a set of deliveries. For each campaign, the schedule offers a global view of all components: you can display the tasks and deliveries, and access them easily.

Forum forum

For each campaign, operators can exchange messages via a dedicated forum.

Learn more in Discussion forums.

Reports reports

The Reports link lets you access the campaign reports.

Reports are detailed in this section.

Configuration configuration

Campaigns are created via campaign templates. You can configure reusable templates for which some options are selected and other settings are already saved. For each campaign, the following functionality is offered:

  • Referencing of documents and resources: you can associate documents with the campaign (brief, report, images, etc.). All document formats are supported.
  • Defining costs: for each campaign, Adobe Campaign lets you define cost entries and cost calculation structures which can be used when creating the marketing campaign. For example: printing costs, use of an external agency, room rental.
  • Defining objectives: you can define quantifiable objectives for a campaign, e.g. number of subscribers, business volume, etc. This information is later used in campaign reports.
  • Managing seed addresses and control groups.
  • Managing approvals: you can select the treatments to be approved and, if necessary, select the reviewing operators or groups of operators. Learn more
To access the campaign configurations and make changes to them, click the Advanced campaign parameters… link in the Edit tab.

Using the web interface using-the-web-interface-

You can access the Adobe Campaign console screens via an internet browser to view all campaigns and deliveries as well as reports and information on the profiles in your database. This access does not enable record creation. Depending on operator rights, you may view and/or act on the data in the database.

In addition to navigating across campaigns and viewing them, you can perform these types of tasks:
