Challenge

When submitting Campaign Items to the AdServer, there are a lot of fields for the configuration of these items. Fields, which set the item type, the goals and the priority, are pre-defined on Ad Type level for your products. For Many of these you can however still override them on Campaign Item level. Thus creating some exceptions to the default product configuration, while everything else still remains the same.

Here is an overview of the different fields and how to use them.
