Step 4: Test and Run the Use Case

When you are done adjusting the use case, we recommend to always test the use case before deployment. When testing, double-check if the use case design, copy, and settings work as preferred.



You should only deploy a use case after testing. Testing prevents sending unfinished or imperfect campaigns to your customer base.

Run the use case once the testing is over. When you open the banner, click the Start button in the upper right corner to launch the campaign.

After this initial period, use the prebuilt and ready-to-use evaluation dashboard specifically included in this use case to measure and analyze relevant data.

To evaluate, open the evaluation dashboard, enter the banner's name (e.g., Youtube Video Banner), set the attribution window for revenue in hours (e.g., 24), and click the Refresh button in the upper right corner to see the results.
