Publish the content offer


When you finish creating the content offer, click Save and publish to publish the content offer and make it available for use by an action map.
You can't edit an action once it's published, so if you're not ready to publish the content offer, click Save as draft. You can change the status from Draft to Published later on.
For more information, see Save an action: draft or publish.

Link the content offer to an action map


After you publish a content offer, you must link it to an action map in order for your users to see it. The action map defines the conditions that trigger the content offer. You can either create a new action map or use an existing one. In either case, you'll need to configure the following fields within the action map:

  1. In the Select action field, click Configure.
  2. Select Content offer.
  3. Click Next.
  4. On the Select content offer page, select the content offer.
  5. Click Next.
  6. On the Action summary page, review the details of your content offer, including the following:
    1. Activation time - Immediately, Upon return to site, or Delay.
    2. Time range - the start and end date of the content offer.
