2. Under ‘Add creative’ click the ‘+’ next to ‘add using serverside template’ to expand.

3. Choose [slider] in the dropdown menu.

4. Tick the “global creative master” box if this is going to be your global creative master.

5. If you are using Sequential delivery or Serve first valid creative put your order number in the box “order number”. This will enable you to determine the order in which the creatives are delivered. Lower numbers are sorted before higher so don’t forget to do this for all campaigns of the campaign.

7. In “Extra flash parameters” you can send extra parameters to the Flash. Write them as name=value - and if there are more than one extra parameter, separate them with a comma.

8. Under “clickTag” you can enter two values: a) The name of the clickTag b) The value of the clickTag You can have a number of different clickTags, corresponding to clicks in different places in your Flash file.

9. Under “sidekick container creative” you upload your file for the sidekick container. This is the container that appears on the right and “pushes” the editorial content leftward. Click “Choose file” and find the file on your computer. Then choose it.

10. Enter the dimensions of your file using the “Container width” and “Container height” fields if your .swf file has different dimensions.The default size is 850×700 if your .swf file is 850×700 simply leave the fields blank.

11. Again in “Extra flash parameters” you can send extra parameters to the sidekick container Flash. Write them as name=value - and if there is more than one extra parameter, separate them with a comma.

12. Again Under “clickTag” you can enter two values: a) The name of the clickTag b) The value of the clickTag You can have a number of different clickTags, corresponding to clicks in different places in your Flash file.

13. Under “require flash version” write what Flash version the browser is required to support in order to display the file. If this number is higher than the version number supported by the browser, or if the browser doesn't support Flash at all, a backup image will be displayed. E.g. Choose Flash version 9 or above as this is the minimum requirement.

14. Upload your backup creative You have two options: a) Enter a URL that returns a flash file to serve b) Upload a file by clicking “Choose”

15. Choose “yes” in the “Use 1×1 pixel as backup GIF” field if you don’t have a backup file

16. Under “Animation Time” you can decide the length of the “push” animation. Enter the desired length in milliseconds. If left blank the default will be 500 milliseconds.

17. Under “3rd party impression pixel” enter a URL to 3rd party impression tracking pixel. Typically a url to a 1×1 image at a 3rd party. Leave blank if you are not using a 3rd party impression tracking system.

More options If you have some extra html-code that you want to add, for example an impression tracker, this is where to put it.
