NATS lets you upload as many adtools as you want, so that both program owners and affiliates can get the most success out of their promotions. However, this can sometimes mean that the Affiliate Adtools pages can take a while to search through manually, making it tough to get your adtools right away.

NATS4.1 eliminates that concern with the new Affiliate Adtools search. This feature lets you quickly narrow down your list of adtools to only display the ones matching your chosen search parameters. You can use this to quickly and easily locate the adtools that you want to use.

Not only can you search for specific adtools with the search options available, you can also reorder your available adtools by any category available on this page. For example, you can choose to sort your image banners by when they were added, their layout, file size, type, or pixel height/width. Just click the top of each column in the adtools table to reorder your adtools by that category.

Using the Adtool Search

You can use the affiliate adtool search function with any of the adtool types available in NATS. Just pick the adtool type you want to use from the "Ad Tools" category in the top toolbar, available on any affiliate page.

Once you're on the Affiliate Adtools pages, you'll see the search options at the top of the table of adtools. Each adtool type in NATS various search options that let you search through your tools with drop-down menus, fields, icons, and slider bars. The available search options differ based on adtool type, since essential information for each type varies.

Fill in the available adtool search options however you want, then click the "Search <adtool type>" button to the right of your options. Your list of affiliate adtools will now be narrow down to reflect your search.

Each adtool type in NATS offers different search options that are tailored to information stored for that adtool type. For example, you can search image banners by when they were added, their group, their layout, pixel height/width, and banner type. Meanwhile, you can search free hosted galleries by when they were added, their group, what type of media they contain, the number of items, and models featured in that gallery.

The following section lists the different search options available to you for each adtool type offered in NATS.
