Before setting up your Campaign, you’ll want to make sure you’ve set up your account by navigating to Account Settings in the top left corner of your Dashboard. Your Account Settings act as a template for any Campaigns you create, so it’s always a great place to start.
Note: any template details that you add in the Account Settings, such as a Cover Photo, can be overridden at the Campaign level.
