MakeGood Window Improvements

Thanks to one of our clients keeping us honest, we were made aware that the new-and-improved MakeGood window inadvertently introduced a limitation that didn't previously exist with the "onion-layer" windows previously available. To remedy this, we have introduced the ability to easily and quickly activate checkmarks in batch by Station, Customer and/or Contract for removal of MakeGoods all the while providing for an overall view and detailed control over all of the MakeGoods.

Archived/Trashed

As you have seen in the last release with the changes made to archived and trashed Users/Salesperson and in this coming release with RevenueSource and Revenuetype (see below) we are just clarifying them and giving you the ability to recognize their use throughout Radiotraffic.

Trashed

"Trashed" is Radiotraffic's delete feature, this way things can be removed from your daily routine and possibly be retrieved for reuse. We are in the process to make sure that if anything is "Trashed" it is removed from the daily workings and should only be seen in its base settings AND with the "Trashed" ability check marked.

For Reports, this is different, As something that you have trashed may and will show up in a report. For when you do see an item that has been trashed, in a report, it will show as *Trashed(###)*. The number in with "Trashed" is a reference number.

Archived

"Archived" is the "we aren't sure we want to trash it but would like it 'gone'" so that it is no longer in the workflow; meaning that anything archived will no longer be available for "future assignment". In other words, one might want to be able to see it in your daily work and also have the ability to see that has been archived. Therefore archived items will be everywhere they are supposed to be but with an "(Archived)" after them. In their base settings, you can still turn them visible/invisible with the archive feature checkmark.

For Reports there will be a lot of instances of things being archived and so all archived will be present in all reports. They will show up in those reports with "(Archived)" after them.

EC As we are improving areas we will be showing extra pictures of what will happen with archived and trash in those areas we are talking about.

Revenue Sources

Update of Archiving and Trashing abilities in the RevenueSource window inside of Settings.

Image


We now have two levels of removal (Archived and Trashed) from the Revenue Source window for better file management. Each of these can be returned to an active state with the Un-Archive and Un-Trash ability that you will only see in a context menu of a revenue source that can be...

EC If you "archive" a revenue source and then "trash" it, when you un-trash, it will become archived and will need to be un-archived to return to "active".

We have also added the ability to "Merge" and Multi-Select revenue source into another:

Image


Merge will move all allocated areas assigned from the original revenue source to the merged one, you assign it to, and then delete the original revenue source selected.

Multi-Select allows you to Shift/Left click or ctrl/left click to gather a few revenue sources and right click to open the Context menu and apply to all highlighted.

Image


We now have two levels of removal (Archived and Trashed) from the User and Salesperson windows for better file management. Both of these can be returned to an active state with the Un-Archive and Un-Trash ability that you will only see in a context menu of a user or salesperson that can be...

EC If you "archive" someone and then "trash" them, when you un-trash that person, they will become archived and will need to be un-archived to return to "active".

Reports Update

When running reports, the users (salespeople) who are archived and/or trashed have been altered. Archived will be visible on reports and trashed will not. But their respected data within the report will still be there.

Here Cab Calloway had been archived in Users/Salespeople:

Image


He is still listed in both the left column (with a checkmark) and (below) on the right as the salesperson listed for West Wind Motel:

Image


Here Cab Calloway has been trashed in Users/Salespeople:

Image


He is missing in the left column, and (below) on the right the salesperson listed is now "Deleted" but his productivity (West Wind Motel) is still listed in the report:

Image


EC The number with "Deleted" is a reference number to the User/Salesperson. Even though it says deleted, the user/salesperson is only trashed.

Dashboard Reminder

We have had quite a few people ask about knowing ahead of time when a release of the improvements that they want are going to be released. Now while we cant give a concrete time too far down that road, we can let you know a few hours, days or possibly weeks before we go live with a new version.

Image

This will now show up on the Dashboard and countdown to our potential release time and date.

Clicking on this reminder will open the ComingSoon window containing the details of what is coming in the next release.

Copy Improvements

We needed to update the Copy window to reflect the changes we have done to other windows throughout RadioTraffic.

To this we have added the "Trashed" ability to the Copy window Context Menu:

Image


This means we now have two levels of removal (Archived and Trashed) from the copy window for better file management. Both of these can be returned to an active state with the Un-Archive and Un-Trash ability that you will only see in a context menu of a copy that can be.

Just like with the other windows that have the ability to archive and trash we have added to the "View" tab the ability to check and uncheck "Trashed" and "Archived".

Image


This allows for better clean up and faster retrieval of wanted/needed pieces of Copy.

EC If you "archive" someone and then "trash" them, when you un-trash that person, they will become archived and will need to be un-archived to return to "active".
