New AdSphere Build – 9-27-2018

A new build has been released today with a few new features.

VIDEO DOWNLOAD

You’ll find a new download icon to the bottom left of the DRMetrix Video Player (as shown below) which will download an .MP4 version of the video to your computer.

Please only click the download button once.  Then look at the bottom of your browser where you should see the file downloading (as shown below).  If you click the video download icon multiple times, you are instructing your browser to download the file multiple times which will count against your monthly download limit.

When the file is fully downloaded a little down arrow will appear.  Click the arrow and a menu will open.  It is recommended that you choose ‘Show in folder’ so that you know which directory on your computer the file has been downloaded to.  This will be helpful should you wish to email or access the file in the future.  On most computers, there is a dedicated download folder configured for such files although users can change the default download directory at will.  If you need additional assistance, please contact your company technical support or email [email protected]

To prevent abuse, there is a monthly per user limit of 100 downloads a month.  We recommend using the cloud based link sharing in situations where a hard copy download is not required.  There are no limits with the cloud based link sharing.  For example, the ‘copy to clipboard’ icon on the button right of the video player (see below) allows you to copy the video link for any video which you can then share by pasting the link into any email or document.  The cloud based links expire after 30 days.

 

NEW BLACK THEME

If you’ve ever found the light blue fonts hard to read in AdSphere then this feature is for you!  From the home tab of AdSphere, you’ll find a toggle switch located at the top right of the page.  You can toggle between our original theme and the new Black theme.  It’s easy to switch back and forth so give it a try!

 

The new black theme darkens all of the font colors making them easier to read and also toggles the light blue font to a dark underlined font which now denotes where the hyperlinks are located.  As you can see, the Brand, Advertiser, and Airing links are all underlined meaning you can click them to be redirected to the appropriate page.

 

ASSISTANT ADMIN FEATURE

Existing ADMN users please take note.  You can now elevate users to the role of ASSISTANT ADMN so they can help you administer the AdSphere Account.  Once you elevate any user to this role, they will receive an email notifying them with instructions.

The process to elevate a user to assistant administrator is very straightforward.  From the home tab of AdSphere, ADMIN users have a person icon located in the upper right of the page as shown below:

After you click the person icon, you’ll be taken to the user setup page listing all of your current users.  Find the user you wish to elevate to assistant administrator and click the little gear icon on the far right.  Then click EDIT USER.

 

You’ll now find a clickable box for Assistant ADMIN that you can check.  When finished click the blue SAVE button at the bottom.  If you wish to unassign the Assistant ADMN role in the future, please use the same procedure and uncheck the Assistant ADMIN box and click SAVE.

 

We hope everyone enjoys these new features!  Thank you for being our customer!
