When running your business, it’s likely that you use specific terms to refer to multiple offers, advertisers, and affiliates at a time. To do that in HasOffers, you can apply classifications and tags. Use these features to:
- Help affiliates find offers they’re interested in
- Report on tags at an aggregate level
- Better organize offers, advertisers, and affiliates in your network
Classifications and tags are designed with reporting and network organization in mind. Using classifications, you can consolidate data in the Stats Report by vertical, media placement, and more. Tags build on this functionality by adding more customization to how you organize offers, affiliates, and advertisers.
When you classify or tag offers, you can choose to extend the visibility of those classifications and tags to your affiliates. Your affiliates can then browse and search for offers by classification and tag.
Classifications are grouped preset labels you can apply to offers, affiliates, and advertisers in your network. You can have up to 50 of each classification type in your network:
- Operating systems
- Conversion types
- Media placements
In addition to the preset classifications, you can also add custom ones for each classification on the settings page. From the main navigation, go to Company > Customize Application > Settings > Classifications and Tags. Then use the dropdown menu above the table to select a classification type. On the page that appears, click the Create button.
Tags are custom labels you can apply to offers, affiliates, and advertisers in your network. You can create up to 50 tags for use in your network. Affiliate and advertiser tags are visible only within your network, but offer tags can be made visible to your affiliates as well.
From the main navigation, go to Company > Customize Application > Settings > Classifications and Tags. On the page that appears, click the Create Tag button.
Then in the modal window:
- Give your new tag a name
- Toggle your tag to active or inactive
- Tags set to “Inactive” won’t appear as options when filtering data or applying tags
- Decide what the tag can be applied to
- Advertiser tags and affiliate tags only appear in your network
- Offer tags can optionally be visible to affiliates in the publisher interface
To apply a classification to an existing offer, first go to the offer’s page. In the Details panel, click Edit. Then select the classification to apply from a classification dropdown selector like “Vertical” or “Media Placements”.
To apply a tag to an existing offer, affiliate, or advertiser, first go to the offer, affiliate, or advertiser’s page. In the Details or Account Information panel, click Edit. Then use the Tag dropdown selector to apply tags.
Tip: You can also create tags anywhere you apply them—click the plus sign icon (+) next to the Tags dropdown selector to begin the process.
As you use classifications and tags you’ve created, you may want to edit their names or adjust their visibility settings. You can do this on the Classifications and Tags settings page.
From the main navigation, go to Company > Customize Application > Settings > Classifications and Tags. Hover over the classification or tag you want to edit and click the pencil icon. This opens a modal window where you can update information about your classification or tag.
Tip: “Inactive” tags and classifications appear at the bottom of the table on the management page.
