Learn more about automatically enabled modules

The Manage additional managers module lets the assistant add advertisers and assistants to campaigns. When the module is enabled, the following options are turned on:

  • Manage assigned campaigns.
  • Create assigned campaigns.
  • View assigned campaigns.
  • Own advertisers.

Access to placements

Assistants that have access to the Monetization tab can work with the administrator's Yandex Advertising Network ad units. After the assistant links their Adfox account with Yandex ID, the administrator must set up the assistant's access to their sites in the Yandex Advertising Network. This lets the assistant add and edit ad units on the administrator's sites. The permission is configured on the Users → Assistants → Access to Yandex Advertising Network platforms tab.

If the administrator already has some Yandex Advertising Network ad units linked to Adfox sites, the assistant will see such ad units in the Yandex Advertising Network interface, but won't be able to edit them. They also won't be able to add new ad units to those sites. To enable such options for the assistant, set up permissions for them.

Banner types

You can select the banner types that the assistant will be able to add to campaigns. To do this, on the Users → Assistants page, click next to the assistant's account. Select the desired banner types and click Change.

Available targetings

You can set up access to a specific targeting type for assistants and set the allowed targeting ranges for them. To go to the targeting settings, on the Users → Assistants page, click next to the assistant's account.

Depending on whether the assistant has a Targeting profile assigned, targetings available to them work differently.
