Campaign Views and ID's

There is a natural hierarchy level to campaigns in Salesforce.

Your organization has an overall Parent Campaign "Hult 2012 Parent Campaign"

This campaign level is considered the grandparent level for reporting purposes, all current fiscal campaigns roll up to this level.

The 2nd level is the generic grouping of your marketing types; Events, Direct Mail, Telesales, Email, Paid On line, Other

The 3rd level is the child campaign which is associated to one of the 2nd level categories.  

The campaign ID which is shown in the first column above is utilized in any external marketing tool to link the campaigns and to sync results after a campaign has concluded.  i.e. ExactTarget will be used for marketing campaigns but the original lists will reside in Salesforce in a campaign.

Click into the hyperlink for the Parent Campaign and view the hierarchy.
