Link Ads Creative Studio to Display & Video 360

Ads Creative Studio is a web app for creative production. If your creative team uses Ads Creative Studio, they can link their account to your Display & Video 360 advertiser. After you approve the link request, they can send creatives directly to your advertiser.

Benefits

Linking accounts saves you time when delivering creative assets. You no longer have to email them or upload and download them from a shared file server.

Permissions

  • Linked Ads Creative Studio accounts can send creatives to your Display & Video 360 advertiser at any time. 
  • Linked Ads Creative Studio accounts cannot overwrite creatives or access your Display & Video 360 account.

Supported creative formats

Currently Ads Creative Studio users can only export non-dynamic versions of the following formats:

  • Cuecard, Blank slate, Panorama
  • Swirl
  • Parallax
  • Rich media banner
  • Rich media banner with video

Customizable (formerly known as dynamic) formats cannot be exported to Display & Video 360 yet. More formats will be available later this year.
