Seller creative review list

The Seller Creative Review window lets sellers review a list of pending, approved, and rejected creatives, configure list columns, search for creatives to review, and open creatives in a side pane for more details.

To access the Seller Creative Review window from any Monetize screen:

  • If you have a Publishers menu: select Publishers > Seller Creative Review
  • If you have a Marketplace menu: select Marketplace > Seller Creative Review

List of creatives

The Seller Creative Review window displays creatives in rows under three status tabs: Pending, Approved, and Rejected. Creatives appear under each status tab as follows:

  • Pending – Creatives that have not yet been approved or rejected. Creatives are listed here if they were blocked for the seller on a deal in the last 7 days.
  • Approved – Creatives that have been approved by the seller.
  • Rejected – Creatives that have been rejected by the seller. Keeping rejected creatives lets sellers initially reject creatives that they might eventually like to run (for example, if the creatives require additional information before approving).

Note

You can move creatives from Approved to Rejected status or from Rejected to Approved status, but you can’t move them back to Pending status. (for more information, see Approve and Reject Creatives).

Understand creative columns

The Pending, Approved, and Rejected status tabs each list creatives in rows. The rows include columns with useful information about each creative. The following table provides a description of the available columns.

Column Name Description

Error Count The number of errors against this creative on the seller’s deals in the last 7 days

Search for creatives

Using the search box at the top of the Seller Creative Review window, you can search for creatives by ID, type, brand name, or creative name.

Use pagination

  • Select the number of rows to display per page by selecting a value from the Rows per page menu.
  • Enter a specific page in the designated text field or click the arrows to navigate from page to page.
