Log Reconcile

WORK IN PROGRESS - Please understand that we are actively rewriting much of our documentation and this page is currently "under construction"; if there's anything that you'd like to see added to and/or expanded upon, please let us know by sending us a smile.

Edit

Introduction

Log reconciliation must be done before you print your invoices.

We suggest that you do your reconciliation every single morning.

Edit

Select a Log

There are multiple ways that you can select a log.

  • First and the most direct is to click on the dashboard "notices"

Image

This will take to directly to the first log on the list.



  • Second is to click on Logs on the Dashboard

This will open the log window just like the notice on the Dashboard If you have more that one station it will be blank and you will have to pick your station from the dropdown shown:

Should you get this Warning:

Image

Clicking Yes: Will take you to the log that needs to be reconciled.

Clicking No: Will take you to the next log that is not locked.



  • Third way to Select a log is in the Log itself. You can "Open" the Select log window.

Image

This can be done two ways. Either click Open under "File" or click the folder icon.



  • Forth way is in the Log and this uses the Green Arrows:

Image

These are labeled "Previous Log" and "Next Log" Simply clicking either will move you forward or back through logs.

Edit

Usage

  • Pick the station you want to begin your reconciliation for.
  • Select File, Select Begin Reconciliation.

Image

You might have the automatic reconciliation process set up depending on what type of Automation System you have. If you don't have automatic reconciliation then after you have select Begin Reconciliation, make any changes necessary for when spots didn't run.

See How-To: Log Reconciliation.

First, place your bumped spots into the log. These are spots that RadioTraffic could not place because either they conflicted with a code or because it's a spots per week order and they're spots placed on other days.

Image

Click and drag any spot from this list onto the main log into any open break. When you drag, you will see a little plus sign by the pointer. Drop it onto the line for the break to insert the spot into that break.

See How-To: Adding a Spot to the Log.
See How-To: Removing a Spot from the Log.

The Reconcile window is presented during the reconciliation process (when enabled for assisted-reconciliation) for any and all spots encountered during the review of the as-play file from the automation system that weren't originally scheduled as from RT.

This can be used for:

  • Review for potential Write-Ons.
  • Review spots that aired out of their reasonable window.
