Active Campaigns

Active campaigns allow greater control over the distance at which a campaign is triggered.

Active Campaigns Overview

Active campaigns provide more granular control over when a campaign is triggered.

Original Meridian campaigns have been renamed Passive campaigns.

Active campaigns can be used for notifications and third-party endpoint campaigns.

Active campaign accuracy is somewhat dependent on the specific device being used.

Create an Active Campaign

Complete these steps to create a new Active Campaign.

Currently Active campaigns can only be created in the Meridian Editor.

Set Up the Active Campaign

  1. In the Meridian Editor sidebar, click CAMPAIGNS.
  2. Click the Add + button.
  3. In the Info box, campaigns are enabled by default. Uncheck ENABLE if you want the campaign off until later.
  4. In the NAME field, enter a descriptive, meaningful name for your campaign.
  5. Click the TYPE dropdown, and then click Active.
  6. Click the TRIGGER dropdown, and then click On Enter or On Exit.
  7. Click the CAMPAIGN TRIGGER DISTANCE dropdown and choose one of the distances.
  8. Click the COOLDOWN dropdown and choose how long you'd like to wait before triggering the campaign again for a specific device.

A Note on Active Campaign Trigger Distances

Active campaign distances range from approximately 0 meters ("Very Close") to 3 meters ("Very Far").

Determining which distance you'd like to use for an Active campaign may require a little bit of experimentation.
