Creating a campaign allows creating particular settings like start/end dates and budget for a group of desired line items. The line items associated with a campaign can be relative to one another, which could be a reason they are grouped together for a particular campaign. An example use case of a campaign could be an advertisement that has both web and mobile creative formats. Each of these formats can be associated to their own respective line item that both fall under the same campaign. Essential settings can be set on the line item level and do not have get adopted from the campaign-level settings. This could include a separate start/end date, budgeting and targeting.
