UI updates

New Authorized Buyers interface

We are continuing to improve the way Authorized Buyers interact with our platform through the user interface. Going forward, when you sign into Authorized Buyers you will see a different layout to the one you're used to. Navigation is now more intuitive with all the menus and tabs consolidated on the left side of the screen. Only the navigation has changed, not the actual content of each individual page.

Some changes that you will notice:

  • The "Query Tool" has been renamed to "Reporting" and placed within its own menu
  • The "Creative Validator" is not longer supported and has been removed
  • The "Bidding" menu has been renamed to "Troubleshooting"
