Building a campaign with XMLDelivery
A campaign is defined by the XML instructions file that you create. Regardless of how your campaign is configured, the XML instructions file must be fully validated against the schema, if it is to be parsed correctly by XMLDelivery. See XML instructions file for more details.

The order of the following list is also the order in which the main sections and elements may appear in the XML instructions file. See the relevant topic for more about the children of each section or element. If there is no link for a child, see the parent section or element.
