Google Web Designer

Google Web Designer is a tool to build HTML5 banners. In order to make such banners be compatible with Adform system creative should follow specifications below. 

Tip: Use Adform‘s HTML5 Studio to automatically add required scripts and to auto apply Global ClickTAG. Please make sure to test your banner if this Global ClickTAG solution is working properly, especially on Mobile devices.

 

 Note: this describes the usage of external non Adform related systems and please check respective documentation for most up to date information.

 

Adding the clickTAG via Google Web Designer tool

1. Open Code view, insert DHTML library to head section:

<script>
document.write('<script src="'+ (window.API_URL || 'https://s1.adform.net/banners/scripts/rmb/Adform.DHTML.js?bv='+ Math.random()) +'"><\/script>');
</script>
