hyRAF Tab

Once you click on hyRAF, it will take you to the default tab of the hyRAF app. This tab houses all the referral campaigns of your property irrespective of their status: Active or  Inactive. These campaigns are listed with the very recent one at the top, then the one earlier to that and, so on.

You can filter your campaigns by clicking on the 'Filter' option beside the search option and then by clicking on the 'Select Status' dropdown to select between the active or inactive campaigns.

To the far right of each campaign, you can edit or click the three dots which offer the following options:
  1. Duplicate
  2. Preview
  3. Embed Code

Creating/Editing a Referral Campaign

To create a referral campaign, you can click the '+Referral Campaign' on the top right corner.
