Duration-based ad marker rules can be set at the organization, network or program level in Omny Studio. You can learn more about setting these rules here.

Pre and post-roll rules will work automatically - if a clip meets a rule, then the pre and post-roll ad markers will automatically be added where specified.

Because mid-roll ad markers need to be manually placed by users, rules relating to mid-roll ad markers will remind users to place the recommended mid-roll ad markers based on the length of the clip.
