Microsoft is doing more than snapping up advertising companies and cementing ad partnerships. On the infrastructure side of its growing advertising business, It also is continuing to refine its platform and tools for its existing customer base.

Microsoft upgrades adCenter; kicks off ad-analytics betaThe adCenter team upgraded the adCenter online-ad platform with a handful of new features over the weekend, according to a post on the adCenter blog. The refreshes fall into three buckets, according to the company:

  • Editorial: Customers can receive immediate editorial feedback once they create or edit their ads.
  • Campaign management: Customers now have the option of receiving a daily budget. Another addition: Compatibility between Campaign Import and AdWords Editor output.
  • Report management: Customers now can access recent reports and templates from the reporting tab; use drag-and-drop for reordering of custom-reports columns; and view totals and averages.

The adCenter team also announced on October 29 that has kicked off its "Gatineau" analytics beta test by sending invitations to customers.

Gatineau is slated to be a free complement to adCenter and will provide click- and visitor-tracking reports; marketing-campaign reporting; conversion tracking data; and demographic and geographic information from site visitors, the company has said. Microsoft hasn't said when it plans to roll out the final version of Gatineau, which is based on technology Microsoft aquired when it purchased DeepMetrix in 2006.

  • Create a PowerPoint Design Template

    A Design Template is a pre-made slide or set of slides that you get when you click File > New in PowerPoint. For example, if you are designing something for the office, then your employer may have a Logo that needs to be added to each presentation. Instead of adding the Logo to each slide, you can set up a Design Template, and add the Logo to that. The template will then be available from the dialogue box when you click File > New.






    Or, if you have Power 2003, when you click From Design Template in the Task Pane. You'll then see the available designs appear:







    What you're going to do now is to create your own Design Template that will appear on the dialogue box or on the Task Pane. But to get an idea of what you'll be doing, select any of the Design Templates, and click OK.


    When you do, you'll see a New Slide dialogue box. Select the first one (Title slide). PowerPoint will give you the following new slide:
