Tools: Hit Box

This article will walk you through adding a HITBOX to your ad unit.  The Hitbox feature will allow you to place an action over any size area in the ad.

Once you’ve created your ad, select the Hitbox icon  to the left of the Builder:

 

You’ll now see a blue box appear in the top left of your ad:

 

You can move this box as well as resize either with your mouse, or using the Width/Height in the General section (top right of screen).  In this example we will place the Hitbox over the “Video” section of the ad:

Be sure you have the Hitbox selected and now give it an action – go to “Actions” to the right of the Builder and make your selections:

 

Types of Actions:

 

Open Url -  this selection will cause the area of your Hitbox to open a url you specify – fill out the URL field.

 

UPDATE:  You can now choose to have the Url open in a “New Tab” or the “Same Tab” by clicking on the dropdown arrow next to the “Open In” field:

Go to Screen – this selection will cause the area of your Hitbox to open up to the screen you specify.  You can apply the action to happen upon Click, Hover Over, Hover Off, Timed, or In View.  Select which screen from the dropdown, the type of Transition (Slide, Fade or Push), the Transition Time, and Direction.

 

Open Overlay – this selection will cause the area of your Hitbox to open up the overlay.  You can apply the action to happen upon Click, Hover Over, Hover Off, or Timed.  Select which screen from the dropdown.  You can select or deselect the “Disable Background”.  You can also choose a Background color, Gradient and set the Background Transparency.  You can choose to "Hide the Close Button".  The “Close Button Icon” is set as a default but you can upload your own button image from here.  You can also choose to “Close on Timer” or “Close on Click Through”.

 

Open as Full Page Flex – this selection will cause the area of your Hitbox to open up the full page flex.  You can apply the action to happen upon Click, Hover Over, Hover Off, or Timed.  Select which screen from the dropdown.  You can set a Background Image and also choose a Background color, Gradient and set the Background Transparency.  You can choose to "Hide the Close Button".  The Close Button Icon is set to a default - you can upload your own image.  You can also select “Close on Timer”.

 

 

Call – this selection will cause the area of your Hitbox to call a phone number you specify.  Only “Click” can be selected for the “Action On” field.  Specify the phone number.

 

Close Ad - this selection will cause the ad to close when a viewer selects the area with this action set to it.

 

Test by going to preview.

In our example, we ended up selecting "Go to Screen."

 

Now, if the video on screen 1 is clicked on, the screen will progress to screen 2.

Screen 1:

Screen 2:

* To Add multiple actions, select “Add Action”.

***  Helpful Hint:  If you want to apply the Hitbox to expand your ad as a “timed” action, be sure you also set the action as “timed” when collapsing the ad.
