Events are the actions that you set to happen when a certain condition is met. Global Events currently consist of two events:

  • In-screen

  • On Load

These two events can be accessed by clicking on the icon (1) in the component settings menu and selecting the prefered event under the Global Events (2).

In-Screen Event

In Screen event allows you to call or stop an action depending on the banner's visibility in the browser window. You can trigger an action as soon as the viewer starts seeing the banner or when the banners is no longer visible to him.

To set an On-Screen event:

  1. Click In Screen under the Global Events in the components menu.

Dynamic Weather Targeting

Description

By using the Weather Targeting component, you can apply Dynamic Weather Targeting on your creative and, in this manner, target your audience based on real-time weather conditions (such as temperature, weather type), that are provided by a third-party data provider. The component helps to target audiences by showing relevant content, which changes depending on the current weather.

Settings

General

After you insert the component into your creative, make sure to customize settings accordingly. You can choose from Clear, Rainy, Cloudy, Snowy, or Windy (3) weather conditions and set the temperature units either in °C or in °F. You can mark more than one of the selections, such as Cloudy and Windy.

The rule will be matched if any of the selected conditions match current weather and the temperature meets the indicated interval.

When multiple rules are added (by clicking on a New Rule (4) option), the values will be replaced if any of the rules match current conditions.

If you, on the other hand, want to promote separate products on various weather conditions, such as Clear and Rainy, while maintaining the same message, you have to insert two distinct Dynamic Weather Targeting components into a single creative.

Actions

The Dynamic Weather Targeting component comes together with a set of actions that you can choose from and, in this way, enhance your creative even more. The actions will be triggered by the time the conditions, that are indicated in your Rule (-s), are met. When that happens, you can choose from:

  • Trigger Action On: allows you to trigger an action on Panel Slide, Video, Product Retargeting, Cube, Carousel, Slice, Countdown, and Particles components;

  • Change Visibility: allows you to change the visibility of any component by Showing or Hiding its content;

  • Control Animations: allows you to control animations of other components by the time the indicated conditions are met. Read more about animations here.

Building the Excel Spreadsheet

For details about how to build Excel Spreadsheet for Dynamic Ads, see Create Banners for Dynamic Ads. Additionally, the spreadsheet for Dynamic Weather Targeting has these specifics:

  • The component replaces the ordinary CTA with CTA-xxxx according to the applied weather targeting settings, such as the elements that are indicated in Name and Variable Name (1) fields.

  • While conducting the spreadsheet, be aware that the corresponding columns should be made up from the name of the original column, contain a dash symbol (-), and have a group name. For example, if you have a cta column and want to show a specific message when it's cold, there should be a column named "cta-cold".

  • A single Weather Targeting component requires only one version. In case there's a need to define some additional targeting capabilities, like Geo targeting, you can add a new one.

  • The component itself doesn't require creating an additional column in the spreadsheet. However, the information entered in the Name and Variable Name (1) sections has to be reflected in the creative columns (Text and Asset).

  • Columns that are used by the Weather Targeting component should be listed in the Column Mapping interface and also reflected in Adform Studio Builder mode component settings (2).
