April 7, 2011

It's been almost five months since our last major release. We've been hard at work on such a wide range of features; it's nearly impossible to pick any one place to begin.

At the top of the list is the fact that we've been working hard to position ourselves so that we can better address the needs of all of our customers.

There are over eleven pages detailing the changes, improvements, additions that have been made in this release.

In the whirlwind of changes that have taken place, we've attempted to keep all of your existing features intact. We are human afterall so if you notice anything missing, please contact us as quickly as possible and well get this taken care of right away.

November 14, 2010

Please take a moment to read through this as there are *MANY* improvements and changes that will most likely affect anyone using our services.

Our last public release was about two months ago and over that time we've been hard at work on bringing you several new enhancements that extends across nearly every part of our service. Many of these will be immediately noticeable, while others are more of a behind the scenes processing that goes on to help produce a much more streamlined process, thus improving overall performance.

If you have any questions, our customer service team is prepared to answer them. Feel free to call, email or post to the forums. Oh wait, did I forget that we now have forums? If you would like to participate in the forums, please contact customer service for more details.

With all that said, here's a list of some of the changes and improvements...

As our software continues to add new features, some of you have made it clear that it is necessary that we have a mechanism in place that allows you to choose whether or not these new features are optionally enabled for your use. This release makes this a reality. For those that were unhappy with the change visualization (aka underscores), for example, you can now contact customer service to have it turned off.

Let us know what you think!

We really want to know what you think. Obviously you can continue to email or phone us with any particulars, but we've been thinking there has to be a simple way that you could let us know how things are going regarding your experience with

You can now let us know how we are doing by simply letting us know by reflecting your experience with an easy to use thumbs up/down rating system. Located on the dashboard next to the logo, you'll see a thumbs up icon. Left click this and it will increase the thumbs up (maximum of three) and right click on it to give us a thumbs down (to a maximum of three). Having a great experience with our product, we'd love to know! Unhappy? Let us know so we can work with you to improve your overall experience with out service.

Budget customers to be upgraded!

We are also announcing the immediate availability of a major upgrade to our budget customers that includes a complete replacement to the printing engine, all new reports, two skins, revenue source and revenue type (replaces income account) and more! Please contact customer service for details on migrating to this new version.

June 4, 2010

I'll be working with Microsoft answering questions at their conference taking place in New Orleans, LA. next week; as such, we are releasing what we were planning on making available next Tuesday a little ahead of schedule.

A couple of weeks ago, we reduced the number of elements on the screen that defined how an invoices are structured and printed. These options included Detail, Detail Affidavit, Detail Notarized Affidavit and Co-Op Notarized Affidavit.

Today we are extending the available choices through an optional feature by adding Summary, Summary Affidavit, Summary Notarized Affidavit, Times, Times Affidavit, Times Notarized Affidavit, Times/Rates, Times/Rates Affidavit and Times Notarized Affidavit. (Note: You automatically get this optional feature if you have and are current with your monthly service agreement.)

You can update your customers so that future orders will use the newly selected invoice type by default. To change these on existing orders/invoices, you'll need to modify the orders/invoices accordingly.

May 25, 2010


May 24, 2010

This time around, we're going to try formatting the list of updates a little differently. Please let us know which style seems easier to read. Thanks.

May 18, 2010

Announcing Modifying Copy/Rotations Directly From The Log Editor! (Copper+)

Without having to close out of the log editor, you now have the full ability to modify rotations (regular spots) and copy (fill spots).

Select Your Statements (Copper+)

When printing statements from the A/R window, you are now able to select which customers to print. This includes, of course, the ability to utilize MyViews, an aging and unpaid invoice count column.

Automatic Placement Using Fill On Partially Breaks

You can now choose to use the Fill spots to fill out breaks that currently contain spots; leaving breaks with no items empty.

Accounts Receivable Aging Detail/Summary Now Includes Contact Info (Copper+)

We've added two new columns containing Contact Name and Contact Phone to the aging reports to better assist in collection.

Improved Pending Invoices (Copper+)

When you view pending invoices and use the Check All / Uncheck All context menu items, all items were affected even if they were filtered. This is no longer the case. Additionally, items that are filtered are now automatically unchecked. You can also use the spacebar to toggle selection.

Duplicate Copy

You can now duplicate a piece of copy (context menu) from the customer dialog copy list and the copy list editor.

Enhanced Reports Allowing Summarization (Copper+)

Previous to this version, whenever you collapsed a section on the reports, the summary line would be collapsed as well hiding it from view (and printing). We have improved all of the reports so that the summary line will now always be visible; allowing you to essentially create a summary version of any report.

Added "Debit Adjustment" (Copper+)

To provide the ability to add an amount to the customers balance, we now support the concept of "debit adjustment". Whenever you use the add adjustment window to create a "debit adjustment" and press OK/Apply, we will create an custom invoice containing the debit adjustment line item. This allows you to then apply payments/adjustments to this custom invoice.

Improved Database Connectivity

Some of you have experienced intermitent internet connectivity issues and the "generic" exception dialog doesn't completely convey that this is the problem. We are working to improve this circumstance and help you to better determine the problem. In addition, we now allow you to choose to "retry" instead of showing an exception.

May 11, 2010

Introducing the Invalid Order/Rotation report! (Copper+)

Here's the scenario: You've entered in several orders, without copy, a couple of weeks ago. Those orders are about ready to have to be placed on logs and you need to know whether or not rotation/copy coverage exists for those based on the next few days. We've built a report specifically to answer this question in a very quick and concise manner.

Replaced the Make Good report. (Copper+)

The new Make Good report matches the "style" of our other reports and allows the full customization that you've come to expect.

Enhanced Data Entry. (Copper+)

In order to assist in answering the question, "What has changed?" while you're working on entering/modifying data, we've enhanced all data entry fields so the text is underlined for changed items.

No more stinking blinkies!

By popular request, the red exclamations no longer blink.

Enhanced Order Entry. (Copper+)

Several improvements have been made to order entry.

Modified Customer edit/creation. (Copper+)

If drop down data fields have more than one item, we now require that you select the correct entry instead of selecting the first one by default. We've also added the ability to specify the default Spot Type (scheduling) that will be used when creating new order line items.

Enhanced Log Editing. (Copper+)

We've added the ability to Bump This Customer and Bump Normal Spots to the context menu on the log editor. Bump This Customer removes all spots (normal, make good, fill) for the customer selected and Bump Normal Spots will remove all "normal" spots (non-Make Good and non-Fill).

Enhanced Printed Log.

Added the day of the week to the title of the printed log.

Enhanced * Automatic Cart Number usage. (Copper+)

When using the * mode for entering new Copy, particular circumstances are now presented instead of the default exception window; allowing you to see the problem and correct it without having to contact customer service for more information.

Renamed the Copy Type column to be Spot Type on the Order List report. (Copper+)

Some people have expressed that they'd like to see the Spot Type on the Order List report; it was there, however, was labeled as Copy Type. We've renamed the column to Spot Type since that it what it's called on screen.

Replaced A/R Transactions printing. (Coppper+)

To align the printing of the transactions from the A/R window, we've replaced the printing so that it matches more closely with our reports.

Enhanced Administration "List" printing. (Copper+)

The printing of the Administration lists has been enhanced to now include a header containing group name and the name of the list.

Modified Confirmation document. (Copper+)

Order confirmations now shows MTWThFSSu instead of Schedule as a column header and, in the case daily numbers, we format the display as a comma separated list.

Added "Uncheck Trade" to Revenue Type filter on all reports. (Copper+)

To assist in toggling just cash/trade Revenue Type entries when running reports, we've added the Uncheck Trade context menu item to quickly uncheck all Trade type Revenue Types.

Enhanced EmailMyInvoices. (Copper+)

We've completely replaced the online viewing of invoices so they now produce PDF formatted documents. Additionally, we now log to "Invoice History" whenever someone views one of these invoices online and you can View in Browser using the context menu in the A/R transaction list.

May 4, 2010

Enhanced Adjustments (Copper+)

You now have the ability to specify what kind of transaction, such as Credit Adjustment, Trade Credit Adjustment, Bad Debt Write-Off, etc. when entering/editing adjustments. You can use the Type column when running the Adjustment Detail report to see an abbreviated version of this information.

Spring is in the air... (Copper+)

It's been spring time for a couple of weeks now, so it's a little late; however, you can now choose a spring theme (Spring) to help you get into the spirit. Additionally, we've added the Pink and Blue II themes. Enjoy!

Note: Yes, we are working on one for Summer. ;-)

April 26, 2010

Introducing "Skip Weeks"! (Copper+)

In order to reduce some of the duplication of order line items due to alternating weekly patterns, we are introducing Skip Weeks. Skip Weeks works with regular, TAP and Spots Per Week orders. The line item display and order confirmation document (printed) now include the Repeated column that reflects the selected skip weeks option. As always, if you have any questions or notice any issues, don't hesitate to contact customer service.

Deliver your invoices through EDI (Electronic Delivery of Invoices). (Copper+)

Thanks to input from one of our newer customers, we've enhanced when/how we create EDI Invoice File(s) (Open Standard for Broadcasters based on specifications provided by Donovan Data Systems, Inc.). If you have an agency that has an IDB# associated, we will now automatically create .edi files automatically whenever you use the Pending Invoice(s) dialog to finalize invoices. These files are located in your "My Documents"\RadioTraffic\Edi folder. Please feel free to try this and let us know any and all results. If you discover any issues, please let us know and we will work to resolve them as quickly as possible.

December 15, 2009

Chart Replacement

We are in the process of revamping the chart engine. Now new features at this time, however, we are planning on adding several new charts in the very near future.

Change priority on order items.

You can now change the entered priority on an order line item, even if the order is already running. This will allow you to tweak the priority on an order item basis in order to better fill the log.

November 20, 2009

Get into the holiday spirit! (Copper+)

We've added a new theme designed with the holiday season in mind. To review how to change from one skin to another, feel free to watch a short video that walks you through the process by clicking watch tutorial (HD).

November 3, 2009

Enhanced Revenue Projection (Copper+)

Can now modify the report to show calendar, broadcast or both and/or gross/net amounts.

Enhanced Statements (Copper+)

We've significantly enhanced the statements so they now use the same printing engine as the reports, display what invoice(s) the payments/adjustments were applied to, includes finance charge transaction(s), Additionally the statements can now be flagged (at the group level) so that they can be split by station(s) when printed.

Enhanced Invoices (Copper+)

In addition to statements, the invoices have been enhanced to use the same printing engine as the reports, only show notary information on the last page, include balance due in the header,

Enhanced Log Editor (Copper+)

The log editor's bumps, fill, missing copy and make goods lists are now MyViews enabled allowing you to sort, group and filter the information to better assist you in finding exactly what you need when working your log.

Enhanced Pending Invoices (Copper+)

You can now choose to see whether or not an invoice is flagged to print by selecting the Print? column (using MyViews).

Enhanced Pending Invoices

You can now right click on the pending invoices list and choose the select all or unselect all options.

Enhanced Dashboard

The dashboard will now remember which charts you've selected; so now when you exit and return, you'll see the charts that matter to you most.

Admin Tools

Whenever you try to access an admin tool that requires all other windows to be closed, it will now present you with the name(s) of other window(s) that are still open.

Off Air Revenue Invoices

We've modified the off air revenue portion of invoices so that they generate an invoice immediately if the date of the order item is on or prior to today.

Re-introducing custom conflict colors on the logs.

This feature has been in the system for some time, however, over the course of many changes the feature was no longer fully enabled. We've spent some time on it and now it is caught up; allowing you to select any conflict and set a custom color accordingly.

Daylight Savings Time

We've modified the log exports so they will no longer export the 2am hour in the spring and will duplicate the 1am hour during the fall daylight savings time changes.


Software Update

October 29, 2009

Review your Off Air Revenue. (Copper+)

You can now review your off air revenue that will bill (or has billed) place between two specified dates. There is a detail and summary version of this report of which you will find included under the Log section of the report browser.

Inventory report now includes Lowest Rate option. (Copper+)

We've extended the Inventory report to include a Lowest Rate option (very similar to the Average Rate option) that will show the lowest spot rate found in a particular daypart.

Invoices! (Beta)

You've spoken and we've listened. The invoices have been overhauled so they are not only significantly faster (by faster, we mean absolutely no comparision with the prior incarnation) but also include a ton of new features that bring them in line with the all of the other reports. Additionally, we've modified the notary to only be included on the last page of the invoice. This completes phase one of the two phase improvement to invoices; the second phase will provide you with a plethora of options to customize how the invoices will be printed. This is currently in the testing process and will be released shortely after this calendar billing. Stay tuned.

October 26, 2009

Review your inventory. (Copper+)

You now have access to a new report that allows you to review your inventory in several different ways. In addition to date, you can review the information by type, basis and clock. Type can be sold, unsold, total, sold/unsold, sold/total, average rate and total dollars. Basis is by unit, by time, by unit percentage or by time percentage. With all of these options, this provides over 20 ways to look at your inventory to help you increase revenue!

Introducing two new skins. (Copper+)

We've added two new skins. Several people have stated they like the Halloween color scheme, so we've included a version without all of the Halloween decoration called Dark Side. Additionally, we've completed the Coffee skin for your usage. To review how to change from one skin to another, feel free to watch a short video that walks you through the process by clicking watch tutorial (HD).

October 7, 2009

Completely rebuilt confirmations (Copper+)

We've collated a ton of feedback reguarding printed confirmations and this release makes available the new and improved version. These also now take advantage of the new common print preview dialog that is also available with the new reports; of which you can now save confirmations to a PDF file.

October 1, 2009

Introducing Skins! (Copper+)


We understand that not everyone likes the bland Windows look and feel and that every person has individual tastes. With this in mind, we are introducing the ability to select a skin to suite your individual preference. We plan on releasing at least one new skin every month! This month, you can choose to join in on the beginning of the holiday season by switching over to Halloweeen -- and before you ask, yes, we're already working on one for the Holiday season to be released by December 1st. To change your skin, select the Tools/Select Skin menu from the dashboard.

watch tutorial (HD)

Introducing MyViews! (Copper+)

MyViews is a new technology that we've created that allows you to gain full control over how you see information. Don't like how information is shown on the order list, change it. Let's say you want to see orders grouped by status, sales person, revenue source, revenue type or all of the above (or any other column(s)), you can now do this. Seeing too much information, you can filter the information down using several methods. Of course, sorting, reordering columns, etc. is all available. Close the window that you've made changes to, open it back up and it remembers your changes. Now don't mistake this as being only available on orders, pretty much anywhere you have a list of items, you can leverage MyViews technology! Let's say your in the A/R window and want to only see customers whom have an outstanding balance; filter the list by only showing customers with a positive balance. For detailed information regarding MyViews and how to use them, go here.

How about some reports? (Copper+)

We've build an entirely new report engine and have added several and/or enhanced reports; how's this for a list to get you started?

Most of these reports can be filtered by revenue type, revenue source, sales person, customer and/or station. Additionally, the majority of these reports are visible by sales people, where they can only see information related specifically to themselves.

Is there more? Absolutely!

All of these reports now leverage a new engine that we've put together so you can preview the reports without locking you out of the rest of the system. Additionally, you can now customize some of the presentation of the report, export them to several different formats including PDF and Excel, email a report directly from the preview dialog, zoom, search, etc.

We are still in the process of rolling out these reports to Copper+ customers followed by Basic customers, however, the enhancements to reports provided through MyViews technology will not be available to Basic customers. Combining MyViews and the new reports provides endless posibilities for customization of reports.

In addition to these reports, you can print any of the administration lists as well as several other lists throughout the system. Again, combined with MyViews technology, you have even more posibilities for reporting.

Calendar/Broadcast projections, makes no difference. (Copper+)

We've been hard at work improving the overall performance related to calculating projections (order confirmations, a/r window statement/projections tab, revenue projections report). What used to take up to five minutes is now down to a few seconds. In the process, we've enhanced the numbers so they are now calculated based on the order billing cycle. The effects of this are visible on order confirmations and the a/r window for all customers and the new revenue projections report utilizes this new mechanism as well.

Streamlined Copy Management (Copper+)

You can now manage all copy for all customers from a single window. Add and edit copy for all customers without bouncing around from screen to screen. You can access this window from the Administration icon and look for the Copy icon.

Enhanced Invoice Editing (Copper+)

You no longer need to double click on every line item to make changes to an non-finalized invoice. You can now edit directly in the MyViews enabled invoice item list. Just click on the column (or press F2), make changes, arrow key to another row and continue to make changes. Additionally, you can add/remove lines from invoices by using the right click context menu (group administrators only). To edit an invoice that has been finalized, you will need to reverse the invoice using the invoice context menu from the A/R window.

August 18, 2009

Enhanced Copy

We've added several new feature to the copy management area. You can now configure (in the admin window) a list of voices and use these in copy to attempt to separate copy by voice. We've also added the ability for you to specify a start and end time for fill spots so you can configure a particular piece of copy to run only during overnight hours (as an example). In addition to these, you can place a piece of copy on hold, add notes (that will not be printed during invoicing), specify a co-op for, etc.

Coming Soon

We are working hard on a lot of new features that will be coming very soon (hopefully some of these will be before the end of the month) and we will start talking about them in the very near future as we target in on a release date.

August 3, 2009

Added "Remember me..." to the log on window.

When entering your user name and password, you can now choose to remember me. When doing this, it ties your account to your Windows account and will automatically sign in whenever you launch RadioTraffic in the future. This only happens if you just exit the application. If you "log out", then the relationship is removed and you'll have to sign in next time you launch.

watch tutorial (HD)

Added invoice number to (continued) pages and scripts.

When printing invoices, the invoice number is now printed on every page.

Added "reporting" date entry fields for unapplied payments/adjustments.

When you have payments/adjustments that are unapplied, the reporting services will use these values for assigning the unapplied portion on reports that need this information.

July 20, 2009

Simplified Order Entry / Account Information

We've moved the selection of the account information ("income account") from the order line items; of which needed to be the same for every line to the order header. In the process, we've separated "income account" into "revenue source" (Local Direct, Local Agency, National Direct, etc.) and "revenue type" (Cash, Trade, etc.). If you are currently using reports that rely on income account, continue to specify income account (now optional) until these reports are replaced using revenue source and revenue type. We will be working quickly to provide replacements to these reports as soon as possible.

Simplified transactions.

We've enhanced the application of transactions to invoices. You can now click on the "apply" column to apply the remaining balance directly to the invoice; no typing necessary. Click, click and your done.

There's tons more on the horizon.

We've got some extremely cool new features coming very soon and have been working hard on the changes necessary to support these features. The order entry and transaction improvements are only the beginning...

June 12, 2009

Fill now follows the same rules as other spots.

The response to using automatic placement using the fill list has been incredible. We've listened to the feedback and have now extended the behavior of the items in the fill list to honor primary/secondary conflict and customer separation. This behavior also carries over in the drag/drop functionality as well.

June 9, 2009

Entering payments/adjustments just got a whole lot easier!

When entering payments/adjustments, you no longer need to specify the station and income account. The payments/adjustments will inherit the station/income account based on the application of the transaction to an invoice. Transactions currently not applied will be placed in the "None" station/income account for reporting purposes. Deposits have also been enhanced, removing the need to specify a station when creating a new deposits.

Helping you to build your templates faster.

We've enhanced the template editor by adding a time "ruler" so that it's easier to see what is being added on an hour by hour basis. Additionally, all elements are now color coded to assist in the identifying one one type versus another. We've also added the same feature included in the log editor regarding applying existing templates to an open template; where when applying them, items in the same segment as the template to be applied will be removed. The enter key now allows you to open and edit the selected item and the delete key will now remove the item making it easier to remove items quickly.

May 27, 2009

Fill that log.

You now have the ability to use the make good and/or fill lists to automatically place spots on the log. Additionally, you now have more options to bump spots from the log such as bump all spots, bump all fill spots, bump all make good spots, bump all the spots in a break and bump an individual spot.

Expired Orders enhanced.

We've expanded the expired orders report to show orders by the line and added the break type.

Preview invoices before finalizing.

As requested, we've added the ablity to view what an invoice will look without having to finalize and print/print preview. These invoices will contain a preview "stamp" so there is no confusion that they are not yet finalized.

Primary and secondary conflicts now conflict.

Based on feedback, we've modified how the primary and secondary conflicts (log automatic placement) work. Previously primary only conflicted with primary and secondary only conflicted with secondary; now they conflict across both primary and secondary.

April 8, 2009

This is a HUGE update!

A new face!

As you will notice, some of the icons have changed to better reflect the overall intention of the task at hand.

The dashboard has had a few major enhancements as well. At first glance, you might not notice too much; however, underneath there are major changes. If you like to run the application full screen, the charts will now be more proportionate. If you are a person with multiple roles, you can now access other available charts and graphs. To do this, right click on any chart/graph and, using the context menu to select any available chart/graph.

For traffic managers, we've added the Invoice Completion graph. The New Order Revenue chart has been enhanced so that you can click on any of the displayed weeks to bring up a mini-report containing the related details. Please, as always, feel free to let us know what you think.

Make good on your Make Goods!!!!

We've had the process in place for some time that enables you to view and finalize spots that did not air. This process required that you reschedule (extend the order or create a new order) to make good on these spots if you didn't want to just outright cancel them. Good news!!! You can now just drag these spots onto any future log (as well as decide to cancel them). All of this can be done from the log editor.

Include Sales and Sales Managers in the EmailMyTimes loop!

We've removed the BCC send of the EmailMyTimes customer emails to the associated sales people and have added an overall summary of the emails that have been sent. Additionally, this summary email will include all related spot times, even those customers that are not participating in EmailMyTimes. The sales managers now receive the entire list (all customers / all sales people). To enable, you just need to add an email address to the sales people and sales managers.

Bring the production department in on the loop!

Whenever you create or modify a piece of copy, you can now configure the system to send an email detailing what needs to be done directly to everyone in the production department. All you need to do to enable this is setup your production accounts with associated emails and your done. Next time you add/update a piece of copy, they'll get an email!

Helping you to get log reconcilation done more quickly!

In an effort to reduce the amount of work regarding log reconcilation, we are working hard to put together "automatic reconcilation". For those using SS32, you've already had something similar to this; however, you are getting a boost as well. In the station configuration, be sure to specify your aired log path. Once this is done, whenever you begin reconcilation, the aired log will automatically be loaded with no additional work on your part. We've added AudioVault AV-AIR and Enco Streamline. Your automation system not on this list, please contact us and we'll see what we can do.

Spots Per Week order entry change.

Based on feedback, we are no longer "front loading" the left over spots per week. We are now doing a "best effort" to distribute the left overs across the available days.

Curious as to what new orders were added today?

You can now view a New Orders list that details what orders have been added between the defined date ranges (defaulting to today).

Yes, there really are a lot of new icons in Administration.

You've had the ability to manipulate many of the lookup lists throughout the system. These edits took place where you needed them the most, wherever you currently were editing information. In order to provide more flexibility, you can now edit all of these lists from the Administration module. All of these "editors" have been significantly enhanced to better assist you in getting your group/station(s) configured the way you want them. Additionally, you can print any of these lists.

Dashboard Update

We've made a few changes to the dashboard to better reflect information so that it more specifically relates to the role of the logged in user. We are actively looking at improving this, so if you have anything you'd like to see displayed in a chart/pie format please let us know.

Include sales people in EmailMyTimes and EmailMyInvoice conversation.

We've improved the EmailMyTimes and EmailMyInvoice features so that, if configured appropriately, that the related sales person will be blind carbon copied on any emails being sent to customers. All you have to do to set this up is make sure that your sales people have an email address configured. Additionally, the EmailMyTimes template now supports the <firstname> and <lastname> tokens that will try to break the contact name into its individual parts.

Based on customer feedback, we've significantly enhanced the EmailMyTimes feature to support additional tags and the ability for the emails to appear to come directly from the sales representative responsible for the customer; helping you to build a stronger relationship with your customers.

Deliver your invoices through EDI (Electronic Delivery of Invoices).

We've added initial support for EDI Invoice File - Open Standard for Broadcasters based on specifications provided by Donovan Data Systems, Inc. Please feel free to try this and let us know any and all results. If you discover any issues, please let us know and we will work to resolve them as quickly as possible.

Stay in touch with your customers using EmailMyInvoice.

We've enhanced the delivery of invoices via email (EmailMyInvoice) to allow you to control what is included the email via templates that you create in the administration->stations module. In addition to the automatic invoicing during invoice finalization (if configured), you can now send the invoice via email using the context menu inside of the accounts receivable module.

I'm a sales person.

We've enhanced the application to better align the available tasks specifically for a sales person. When you log in as a sales person, the dashboard will now display your personal statistics and you have the ability to see your customers/orders. You can also add new customers and orders. We've also added the ability to view reports; of which, at the time of this writing, is the avails report.

What is your job description?

We have enhanced the user editor to now define various roles on a station by station basis. We are still in the process of defining exactly what each of these roles consists of and welcome any feedback that you'd like to provide.

Want to fill some breaks before others?

Based on customer feedback, we've added the ability to specify prioritized breaks on the format. You can also define these on the templates to save you some additional work when using template based format editing.

Do you use the log editor on a daily basis?

The log editor has had several enhancements:
