Introduction

Conflicts provides a way in which the scheduling engine will protect related products from appearing close to one another on the Log. For example, you might not want car dealerships to run back to back (or very close) to one another. This protection works on a Contract by Contract basis and is in addition to Customer separation.

You will not be able to split them back up once merged, but you can recreate the one that disappeared if necessary.

Introduction

Clicking on the New button in conflicts or Left click "File" in the main menu and click "New" brings up the conflict window.

Edit

Usage

Image


The above window shows what will be displayed when you create a new conflict.

Edit

Name

The name field should be populated with something meaningful representing the category of advertising that will be used in order to determine whether a conflict occurs in an effort to create a reasonable separation buffer.

Edit

Separation

When the spots are scheduled on the Log, several rules are evaluated in order to create / enforce the space between various scheduled items. Two of these rules are based on Conflict (Primary and Secondary - defined on the Contract). When evaluating the primary and/or secondary conflicts, the type of separation defined for the individual Conflict is evaluated and there are three basic types:

None

When the separation method is set to None, the primary/secondary conflict evaluation are skipped during the automatic placement process on the Log.

Minutes

A separation method of Minutes requires defining how many minutes will be used in determining how far apart similar items (with the same conflict) can be placed. Keep in mind that the amount of time is on both sides of the item being placed compared to both sides of other items already placed.

Avails

Separation method of Avails requires specifying the number of avails between similar items (with the same conflict).
