4.4 Check Availability in ADvendio



To effectively manage campaigns, Sales representatives must check if the campaign items are available within a specific time period.


Use the Availability Forecast feature to gain insights into the quantity and type of items that can be sold to customers, either by checking the Booking Calendar for exclusive items or by submitting them to compatible AdServers:

  • Google Ad Manager

  • Equativ

  • Xandr 

  • FreeWheel

  • Adswizz

  • AdButler

  • Triton

If a Campaign Item is not exclusive and not connected to an external system it will be shown as "non forecastable" on the forecasting overview.


Availability checking in ADvendio generally supports two types of modes:

The system is checking if Campaign Items:

  • availability is exclusive OR

  • availability is connected to an external system (external AdServer)

For example, if both Adserver availability and exclusive availability are presented, the system will perform an exclusive check, not an AdServer check.

Improved Availability Check for Additional Delivery Units

We have made improvements to our availability check feature for additional delivery units. Our system now takes into account the number of delivered impressions and units while checking the digital availability of already running campaigns.

For example, if you have a live campaign and you want to check the digital availability of additional units or impressions after the initial delivery, our system will now take into consideration the units or impressions already delivered. This ensures that the available results are more accurate than before.

With our latest update, we have made sure that the system deducts the delivered units or impressions from your requested quantity, providing precise availability checks for any additional units or impressions in your campaign.

2. Exclusive Products
