    Open the home page.
  2. 2.
    Click on 'New ad'.
    ​

Editing and deleting adverts

Each advert has two icons to their right (Under actions):

Your app's start page can be utilised in various ways to advertise anything. Instructions for setting up a start page can be found here. How you can utilise them for advertising purposes are described below:

Tiled start page with header

The tiled start page feature has room for a header image at the top of the page, and this can be utilised as an advertising opportunity.
Aside from tiles, any active menu item can be used as a start page. Take advantage of this for advertising purposes by using a page dedicated to a sponsor, or other advertisement, as the opening page your users see.
There are options when creating a badge for additional content, this can be utilised for a number of things including a space for advertising your sponsor. Read more about creating badges here.

Images

You can upload 3 different images per advertisement:
Virtual event desktop image: Image displayed in the virtual event platform
Virtual event mobile image: Image displayed when accessing the virtual event platform from mobile
Mobile app image: Image displayed in the app
