There are five different Control Panel widgets available to help you manage advertising. These are as follows:

You can add these widgets manually (from the Ad Management category in the widget browser), or you can create a new tab using the Ads Manager pre-defined layout.

The following figure demonstrates this layout. The tab is a two-column layout, with the Zones List and Campaigns List widgets showing.
