Can I get my campaign URL before launch?

I'm approved and ready to launch, but I'd like to have the URL in hand so I can set some things up first. I can't find anything on this. I'm not talking about the preview link, but the actual URL that will be used throughout the campaign.

Thanks!

The preview link will actually bring users to your live campaign, once it goes live.

Interesting. Can someone else also confirm this? I also need to submit the Kickstarter URL for an upcoming ad and I still haven't launched yet so all I have is the preview link.

Yes, it's also my understanding that your preview link will link to your campaign upon launch. You could also create a subdomain on your website and route it to your campaign upon launch and give the advertisement the subdomain (which is just a launch page before launch).

Thanks sbriggman - I already did the latter suggestion but google ads and othe providers rejected it because it redirects to another domain (e.g. mydomain.com -> kickstarter.com is rejected).

Also confirmed that the preview link redirects to the campaign page once launched!

Wow - I wish I had checked this before launch. I assumed we would not have a link

wow, wish I had known this only 3 days ago!! just checked our and like others confirm it works.
We set up a series of links on our sites and social media using the token access. Then I went into a crazy panic trying to update all the various links after hitting the launch button... oh, well nothing like unnecessary pressure
