What is Draft Approval?
Draft approval entails that you require influencers submit their drafts before content is set live. If you prefer they email drafts, you can turn this feature off and let them know in the special instructions tab.
Please note: you can not turn this on/off once you launch your campaign.
How does Draft Approval Work?
Step 1: Influencer must submit their .docx in the “Drafts” tab (If they were working out of google docs, have them export and download as a .docx file before uploading to Activate).
Step 2: Campaign Manager must then “Approve” the influencer draft.
Step 3: Once campaign manager approves draft, the influencer must then “Approve” these changes (this tab will be greyed out if not approved by both the manager and influencer).
Step 4: Influencer can then submit their URL blog link
Step 5: Campaign manager can then approve and complete payment
Influencer is having issue uploading their draft. Why is this?
Please make sure they know they can only upload a .docx file in the “Draft” tab. If they were working out of google docs, have them export and download as a .docx file before uploading to Activate.

When and/or How do I manually verify the Tracking Code in a blog post?
How do I know if a blog post has the Tracking Code verified?
You can check the Work Submitted tab in your campaign to see if your blog post's Tracking Code was verified.
If a blog post has a beside the blog post link, that means that Activate was unable to automatically verify the presence of the Tracking Code, but you have confirmed it was added at the time of work submission. If you see the little yellow flag, please read below for instructions on how to manually verify the Tracking Code.
How do I manually verify the Tracking Code in a blog post?
- Visit that blog post link. Right click and select 'View Page Source'. Or you can access the source code of the page through your browser menu.
- Once you have the source code open on your browser, search for the custom code by using the keyboard shortcut Command+F on your Mac, or CTRL+F if you're using a PC. In the search field, add the code which you have required the bloggers to insert in their post.
- If code is found, it will be highlighted by the browser. If not, there will be zero results.
If you do not find the code in the blog post, you can message the influencer via the Activate platform with instructions to include the code.
