Introduction

OddBytes Platform offers two options to set a Campaign and/or Creative's day parting and daily budget - Basic and Advanced. This allows for the Campaign or Creative to be set to exactly what days or hours it can be served and for what cost.

The Basic option is less custom, with the ability select the hours a Campaign or Creative can serve, for every day which is selected for serving. Every day selected will also have the same daily budget.

The Advanced option is more custom, with the ability select the hours a Campaign or Creative can serve, with the ability to set different hours for each day selected to serve. Each day can also have its own daily budget.

By default, Campaigns and Creatives are set to serve 24/7/365.
