Authorization: Allow Adverity to access TradeTracker

  1. If you choose Access using your credentials or Access using someone else's credentials, in Set up or edit Campaigns, you or the person granting access must choose one of the following options:

    • Choose Grant access to all Campaigns, including those created in the future to allow Adverity to access all existing Campaigns and all Campaigns created in the future.

    • Choose Select specific Campaigns to which you want to grant access to determine the specific Campaigns that you want Adverity to access. Adverity will not automatically have access to Campaigns created in the future. You will need to grant Adverity access to any Campaigns created in the future.

    If you use your credentials to grant Adverity access to TradeTracker, all the Campaigns available to you using your credentials will be visible in the Authorizations page to all Adverity users with permission to edit this authorization.

    If someone else uses their credentials to grant Adverity access to TradeTracker, the same applies to the Campaigns available using their credentials.

    This is important to consider if you do not want all Adverity users with permission to edit the authorization to be able to see the details of the Campaigns. For more information about user permissions, see Managing user permissions.
