Release Notes (2016)


Note: Keep in mind that not all features mentioned in the release notes may be available to you depending on your product selection, license agreement and service level. These notes include all updates / improvements across all products that utilize the "client45" platform including those features available only through optional and/or add-on products.


Edit

December 2016

Edit

1927


  • Modified
    • (Revise) As it doesn't make sense to use the revise tool on a Begin of Schedule Contract, this update reflects this by removing access to the revise tool in the Contracts window for these types of Contracts.
    • Under some conditions, modifying a Customer by changing the statement type from None to "something" and back to None will cause the "print statement flag" to be permanently turned off; this is resolved in this update.
  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceException in Billing.ProcessSimpleButton(): To recreate this situation, one has to have an Invoice in Billing be approved and the Customer is setup to be emailed so that the Invoice is now on the Email queue (tab). While leaving the Billing window open, open the AR window and reverse the Invoice. Then jump back to the Billing tab, without refreshing, attempt to begin the email process. This situation is more gracefully handled going forward.
    • ArgumentOutOfRangeException in Ticket.FormatComment(): If a comment is longer than about 180 characters and that comment contains a "ton of returns", it's possible to have this exception generated. This is gracefully handled as of this update.

Edit

November 2016

Edit

1926


  • Added
    • It is now possible to use the "customername" token when setting up the email template for Statements.
  • Modified
    • (BETA) The Contract Split feature has been extended to now allow the Administrator Assistant and Traffic roles.
    • It is now possible for all roles to click on the "Tickets" notification (when available) on the Dashboard.
    • Enhanced the Customer window to more gracefully handle the circumstance where two different people might be trying to create the same Customer.
    • The Rotation window has been modified to no longer highlight the list of items automatically in order to better reflect (when available) the colors that highlight whether or not the item covers the entire spread of the Rotation.

Edit

1925


  • Added
    • The LogNotes and Programs windows (accessible from the Log) have been completely replaced. This is the first step is aligning the features and usage with the AutomationCommands window. In addition to the overall layout change, additional features already available are:
      • Column sorting.
      • Print/Print Preview.
      • Refresh.
      • Merge.
      • Duplicate.
      • Trash/UnTrash.
      • Delete.
      • Full support for MyViews.
    • (Owner) The Invalid CoOp Scripts report now includes an optional Owner column.
    • It is now possible to trash/un-trash AutomationCommands.
  • Modified
    • (EZ-NET) The Administrator Assistant role now has full access to the EZ-NET module.
    • If you do not left click on an item of the Copy tab in the Customer window before right clicking to view the context menu; the Print and Print Preview tools are not available; this has been corrected in this update.
    • When the Ticket window is attempting to detect a URL, if the only text in the entire description or comment is just the URL, the last character was being dropped. This has been corrected in this update.
    • The Inventory report has been modified so that the "filters" (MyViews) aren't cleared every time you make changes to the "simple filters".
    • The "please wait" window that is presented in several areas of the application (ie. Log, Reports, etc.) has been updated to utilize the newer RT logo and defaults to a green background (same as the new logo).
  • Exceptions
    • IOException in Ticket.AddAttachmentAsync(): When attempting to add a file to a Ticket that is already opened by another process, this exception can be thrown. Modified to present this as a message (instead of an exception) and extended to have the ability to "retry or cancel"; allowing you to retry after you close whatever process currently has the file opened.
    • NullReferenceException in Contracts.SeekContractAsync(): When using the CTRL+F (find) feature in Contracts, if you enter something similar to "1234/", this exception is generated. This is gracefully handled with this update.
    • InvalidCastException in Contracts.IsRowInvalid(): Unable to determine circumstance where this exception occurs; however, modified to handle several possible situations more gracefully.
    • ArgumentNullException in AR.BuildTransactionDisplay(): Can be reproduced by being in the AR window and quickly/constantly changing between different Customers while simultaneously repeatedly (quickly) pressing the F5 (refresh) key.

Edit

October 2016

Edit

1924


  • Modified
    • The Enforce Billing Cycle Boundary option being enabled was incorrectly including the "last day of the month" when determining the "hold until" resulting in invoices moving from gathering to pending the "day before" if all other factors were legal; meaning that the only reason why the invoice "should" still be in gathering is because of the blockage due to date being the only reason to hold, all spots have run and are accounted for. This has been corrected to correctly enforce the blockage until after the billing cycle (meaning the next day).
    • Activating the Public Radio add-on.

Edit

1922


  • Added
    • (EZ-NET) Learfield Communications has been added to the list of supported networks.
  • Modified
    • With the recent server update (1921.1), there is even more reason to leverage the Archive features particularly regarding it's usage in the Contracts window. You should periodically take advantage of the Tools->Auto Archive... tool to automatically scan through all active Contracts so that all Paid Contracts can be archived. By doing this, you actually can still view all of the Contracts (archived or not) using the View->Archived menu toggle. The benefit of doing this versus not is that when doing this the archived Contracts list load more quickly than if they weren't due to how the information is determined. Archived Contract information is determined "in reverse", making it a lot quicker to determine the details.
    • The Ticket window has been improved so that when you view a comment that contains a URL, a quick launch button is available in the lower left corner of the window making it easier to launch the associated link. (Only the first link if there are multiple can be launched in this manner.)
    • The Created and Updated columns of the Tickets window now includes the time.
    • The Modified column on the History tab of the Ticket window now includes the time.
    • The Created column on the Attachment tab of the Ticket window now includes the time.
    • When using the attachment capability in a Ticket, there is a limit to the size of the files that can be sent; the window will now check the size of the file before attempting to upload to let you know whether if it's too large.
    • (EZ-NET) When using the "browser" to affidavit to some of the networks, if the network required you to validate who you were EZ-NET would present a message stating that it didn't expect a particular page; these pages are now expected as part of the possible process that can take place.
  • Exceptions
    • InvalidCastException in Contract.EvaluateControl(): The exception occurs when you have a Contract that is assigned to a User who has, after the fact, had the their Commission set to None and you try to open the said Contract. Going forward, the Contract will assume the sales persons Commission is set to 0% if it is None.

Edit

1921


  • Modified
    • The Contracts window has been modified in an effort to improve the time it takes to determine the details of the Contracts returned when using the Archive features. When a Contract is archived, the amount of computation that takes placed is significantly reduced as several assumptions are made that should be true; these assumptions are leveraged as a short-cut for determining some of the details shown on the resulting list.
    • (Revise) The Annual Sales Review and Annual Sales Review (Accrual) Reports have been updated to reflect the Revision Contract numbers.
    • The Contract report now takes into account archived Contracts.
    • When generating a Statement for a Customer where you "back date" and you have any payments applied to the account that are beyond the selected pivot date, the Statement "aging" doesn't match the Statement amount. This has been corrected.
  • Exceptions
    • InvalidCastException in Contracts.ShowContractHeaderListAsync(): When using both View->Archived and View->Trashed being activated and navigating to a Customer that has no Contracts, this exception is generated. This has been resolved.
    • InvalidCastException in Contract.SalesPersonComboBoxEditEx_SelectedIndexChanged(): The exception occurs when you have a try to use correction mode to reassign aContract to a User who has, after the fact, had the their Commission set to None (but is currently the owner of the Customer). Going forward, the Contract will assume the "sales persons" Commission is set to 0% if it is None.
    • When using the Copy window, the "in-use" information seems to be pointless if the cart number is "LIVE". Because of this, the Copy window no longer attempts to check to see what other Customers are using this particular cart number.

Edit

1920


  • Exceptions
    • InvalidCastException in Contracts.CustomerGridView_RowStyle(): Unable to reproduce the exact circumstances; however, guessing something to do with creating a new Customer in the Contracts window and a "timing issue" being involved.

Edit

1919


  • Added
    • Changes have been made to the subsystem that communicates with the servers so that all queries that return a result will now auto-feedback in the event that the query exceeds a baseline threshold that we can/will periodically modify in order to track/improve overall performance across the system. Currently the value is set to 1/2 the currently configured command timeout (Group).
  • Modified
    • The Customer list of the Contract window has been rebuilt in order to improve/reduce load time.
    • The Contract report has been modified in order to improve/reduce load time.
    • Slight optimization applied the data query for the Contracts window to when retrieving Trashed and/or Archived Contracts; no longer attempt to calculate the max billing or the split dates for these types of Contracts.

Edit

1918


  • Added
    • The Dashboard has been enhanced to now include a notification ("todo") regarding Tickets that need to be reviewed.
  • Modified
    • All systems that had a command timeout (Group) value set to less than 90 have been reset to a value of 90.
    • Improved (optimized/reduced) the time it takes to retrieve a list of Contracts in the Contracts window.
    • Significant optimizations have been made to several of the Dashboard checks including: Pending Invoices, Invoices to print, Invoices to email, Invoices to EDI, Makegoods.
    • Performance optimizations have been applied to all areas that need to determine Debit Adjustments for either inclusion or exclusion (Dashboard, Statements, Reports, etc.).
    • The Feedback (Smile/Frown) category in Tickets has been renamed to simply Feedback to support additional channels of feedback; especially related to Auto feedback.

Edit

1917


  • Added
    • The Projection tab on the Contracts window has been enhanced to support "auto-summarize"; meaning that depending on the columns/data visible, the numbers will adjust automatically.
    • (Log Templates) It is now possible to load a Log as a Template in the Template window. To do so, use the normal tools to load a Template; the first item in the list is "From log...".
  • Modified
    • The 180 day limit for selecting a Log using the Apply from... tool in the Log window has been removed; it is now possible to select a Log as far back as there are logs.

Edit

1916


  • Modified
    • When creating a new Ticket, clicking on the text of the "prompts" within the summary and description fields doesn't set the focus correctly on the associated field; this has been corrected in this update.
    • (Report Templates) On some computers, for an as yet unknown reason, some dialog windows do not appear to size correctly where the end result of the dialog barely shows the OK/Cancel buttons. The latest dialog to encounter this issue the CreateTemplate dialog. Changes have been made but will not be able to be confirmed until after this release.

Edit

1915


  • Modified
    • (Log Templates) When applying a Template to a Log, the Log wasn't taking into account the seconds portion of the items already on the Log for the initial item encountered on the Log that was going to be replaced by a Template. This would cause the first item originally on the Log to remain after the Template had been applied. This has been addressed in this update.
    • If an http or https URL is included in the description of a Ticket, a "link" button will be made available making it easier to click on the associated URL. Currently, only the first of possibly multiple URL's is activated with this button.
    • It is no longer possible to upload "any" file as an attachment to a Ticket; only certain files are allowed in order to protect against potential security/virus issues due to automatically launching associated attachments. Many types of files are allowed; however, those that aren't directly allowed can still be attached if you ZIP them and then attach the resulting ZIP file.
    • If you fully collapse the Customers pane on the Contracts, AR, etc. window, the Customers pane will automatically expand to 200 pixels the next time you open the window. In other words, it is no longer possible to fully collapse/hide the Customers pane on these windows.
    • The summary and description prompts of the Ticket window has been enhanced to provide "instructions" as to what should be placed in these fields. A similar treatment has been applied to the Comment window that is associated with the Ticket comments tab.
    • When creating a new Ticket, the "tabs" are no longer visible until the Ticket has actually been created. The description field is now resized dynamically to fill this space during this initial creation process; upon saving, the "tabs" return and the functionality they provide can be leveraged.
    • (Log Templates) If a Template is utilizing a Priority, the Priority was not applying to a Log as expected. This column is now applied as expected with this update.
    • The Priority column is not relevant except in the circumstance where the Log Templates add-on is available; as such, this column has been removed from the Log (unless, of course, if the Log Templates add-on is active).

Edit

1912


  • Added
    • Added the optional Status column to the Aging and Aging (by Month) report.
    • When viewing a Ticket that is currently assigned to you that isn't already Closed, a yellow "info bar" is now presented offering a way to "one-click" mark the ticket as being satisfied and Closed.
    • The Ticket window now includes a new Attachment tab; extending the functionality by allowing for attaching related files to individual Tickets. Current functionality includes: Add and Open.
  • Modified
    • In the Log, the Type Name column was incorrectly using the term "Break" instead of the more appropriate term "Avail" for some systems. This has been corrected/verified across all systems.
    • The Invalid Contract/Rotation/Copy report was not taking into account rotations that have been trashed from a Contract. This has been corrected.
    • Renamed the Comments tab of the Ticket window to Comment for consistency reasons (see next entry).
    • The Ticket window now shows a count (in parens) of the entries on the Comment and History tabs.
    • The "frown-to-smile" button on the Ticket window has been made slightly larger in an effort to more clearly present what it's purpose is. Using this button instead of the "one-click" method described above provides you with complete, step-by-step control over the process... in other words, not "one-click".
    • When using the "frown-to-smile" button, the Status of the ticket is automatically changed to Closed.
    • When opening a Ticket that is assigned to you, isn't Closed and the last comment is not by you, the comment will now open automatically (saving you from having to double-click on it to view).
    • The Invoice (Accrual) report columns Sales Commission % and Sales Commission columns have been renamed to Sales % and Sales $ respectively.
    • The Invoice (Accrual) report will no longer display Sales % and/or Sales $ values if the role of the viewer is one of the "read-only" roles.
    • When creating a new Ticket, if you press the Apply button the Comment, History and Attachment tab counts are still displayed as "?"; this update set these to "0" upon successfully saving the new Ticket.
    • When creating a new Ticket, upon pressing the Apply button the title of the window still shows "New" instead of being updated to reflect the new Ticket number; this has been corrected.
    • When creating a new Ticket and pressing the Apply button, the status bar is not updated to reflect who and when the Ticket was created.
    • (Log Templates) When attempting to utilize the Delete tool directly from the Template window to delete various "elements", the application locks-up. This has been corrected.
  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceExcption in Tickets.AddAttachmentAsync(): If you create a new Ticket, press the Apply button and then try to attach a file, this exception is generated. This issue will be resolved in the next update; until then you can work around the issue by closing and re-open the Ticket window before adding an attachment.

Edit

1909


  • Added
    • (Owner) Added the optional Owner column to the Off-Air Revenue report.
    • Added the optional Product column to the Log report.
  • Modified
    • (Tickets) When viewing Tickets that are Closed, these will now be displayed "faded".
    • The Broadcast Accrual report doesn't appear in the Reports Favorites view when Add to Favorites is used; this has been addressed in this update.
    • On networks where the bandwidth is severely limited, it is possible to open a Contract, close the Contract (which causes the list of Contracts to be refreshed), switch to another Customer (while the existing list of Contracts is still being refreshed) and, upon completion, the system is confused by still showing the previously selected Customer Contracts instead of the newly selected Customer. This has been addressed in this update.
    • (Tickets) Removed the "BETA" notation from the Tickets menu accessible from Dashboard window.
    • (BETA) Usage of some beta features will now automatically generate a usage-tracking ticket.
    • (Tickets) When switching to the People to the Filter tab in Tickets window, the Status field is automatically set to All Issues.
    • (Report Templates) When creating a new Report Template, the Reports window does not automatically refresh to reflect the addition forcing you to have to refresh the window yourself. It no longer necessary to refresh manually; the Reports window will now automatically refresh when a new Report Template is created.
    • (Report Templates) The dialog presented when creating a new Report Template has been renamed to Create Template.
    • (Report Templates) When viewing a Report Template where there is a "advanced" filter applied, it is no longer possible to remove/make inactive this "advanced" filter from this view. The ability to do this is counter to the overall intent of providing consistency in reporting leveraging Report Templates.

Edit

September 2016

Edit

1908


  • Modified
    • (Report Templates) When using the Switch to Original tool on a Report Template, it is now possible to immediately utilize the Create Template tool (from the base report).
    • (Report Templates) The Switch to Original tool was only accessible to the Administrator role and possibly Administrator Assistant role if enabled; modified to allow any person capable of viewing the report to use the Switch to Original tool on the Report Template windows.

Edit

1907


  • Modified
    • (Report Templates) The Save As.. tool has been removed from all Report Template windows. It is not possible to modify a Report Template to create another Report Template.
    • (Report Templates) The Save As... tool on the File main menu of the Reports windows has been changed to Create Template.
    • (Report Templates) The caption of any Report Templates now reflects the fact that it is a template by replacing Report with the word Template.
    • (Report Templates) The Reset tool under the View main menu item on all Report Templates has been removed as it serves no purpose.
    • (Report Templates) It is now possible to use the Switch to Original... tool under the File main menu of a Report Template to "transform" the report currently being displayed into the "root" or "original" report allowing you to make whatever changes you desire using the "full" report.

Edit

1906


  • Modified
    • The Exception window doesn't work as expected in the event that it is unable to submit the details to the server. It present an error stating that it is unable to do so with some instructions; however, you are unable to act on those instructions since the window (and application) exit immediately. This has been corrected.
    • The Administrator Assistant and Traffic roles are now able to access the Undo Approve, Undo Cancel and Undo Revise tools on the Contract context menu (right click) in the Contracts window.
    • When modifying a Customer from within the Contracts window, the status bar shows "Updating customer display..." until you do something else that causes the status bar to be updated. This has been corrected in this update.
    • The Include Beta Reports menu toggle on the Reports window has been removed since there currently are no "beta" reports available.
    • The following Reports are no longer considered "beta": Annual Sales Review, Annual Sales Review (Accrual), Broadcast Accrual, Commission, Pacing and Spot Rate.
    • (Log Templates) Renamed the Template main menu entry to File, shortened the Log Elements main menu entry to Elements, shortened Format Type column name to simply Type and removed the Format menu item from the Template window.
    • (BETA) Replaced Make rotations more difficult/complicated. with Enable "Complex Rotations" for this customer. on the Customer window.
    • In the rare instance that an exception fails to be able to contact the server a message is presented asking you to use the copy button and send the exception via email. It was pointed out that there isn't any indication of which email to send the exception to... this has been updated to reflect the help@ address.
    • (Report Templates) Given the underlying reason for Report Templates to exist, the Reports have been modified in such a way as to "lock-down" the report template Reports; meaning that these reports are designed to be a specific template for use, for example, sending consistent reports to accounting.
    • (Report Templates) Renamed the Reports Custom column to Template.
    • Renamed the Apply Log... tool (in Log) to Apply From... to reduce the confusion related to the direction the applying the structure of one log to another.
    • The Rotation window has been updated to support resizing.
    • It is now possible to leverage a Auto Archive tool from within the Contracts window to automatically archive all Contracts that are currently recognized as being Paid. This tool reviews all Customers and Contracts.
    • When working with a Reconcile Log, adding a Write-On, then right clicking on the newly added item to display the context menu (before saving the Log) and subsequently choosing Trash or Reschedule causes the application to crash. This has been corrected by removing the Trash and Reschedule tools when attempting to do this on a spot that as just been added via the Write-On tool.
    • In AR, if you press the F5 key (Refresh), immediately press CTRL+F, a Contract or Invoice number, then the enter key all before the refresh has had a chance to complete, the Find will fail because it completes before the window has finished completing the refresh task; thus the refresh finishes and overrides the find. This is now being prevented from happening by preventing the CTRL+F (find) window from being displayed while the AR window is in the process of refreshing.
    • In Contracts, if you press the F5 key (Refresh), immediately press CTRL+F, a Contract number, then the enter key all before the refresh has had a chance to complete, the Find will fail because it completes before the window has finished completing the refresh task; thus the refresh finishes and overrides the find causing a message to appears stating that the Contract number to be found can't be found. This is now being prevented from happening by preventing the CTRL+F (find) window from being displayed while the Contract window is in the process of refreshing.
  • BETA
    • With this release, we are making available the release candidate version of the Contract Split feature. This feature is still considered BETA and is marked accordingly within the software, so please use with some caution. If you encounter any problem we will do our best to assist you; however, as it is beta, please remember you are using it "at your own risk". Please be sure to utilize the Smile/Frown available from the Dashboard with your usage results so that we can monitor this in order to get the feature across the finish line. As to what it does, the simplest answer is to give an example. "Today is the 28th of the month and one of your sales people has just told you that 'oh, by the way, I forgot to tell you last month that this next billing we need to make some changes to this contract.'" on a Contract that has already been running/billed out for one or more months. The Split feature is designed to handle this by providing you a simple solution to transition to a new Contract from the old and automatically move all spots, invoices, etc. along to the new Contract so that you can make whatever changes you desire without affecting the prior months using correction mode. This release makes this feature available for general beta; meaning that it's already seen some testing in the real world through those participating in the closed beta; so please be sure to say thank you to those individuals in the forum thread related to this feature.

Edit

1905


  • Added
    • Introducing the ability to reverse a Contract by using the right click (context) menu and choosing the Undo Approve... tool on a Contract that, and this is key, hasn't starting yet (Approved).
    • It is now possible to Reschedule a spot while Reconciling a Log; to access, use the right click (context) menu and choose the Reschedule tool.
    • It is now possible to Trash a spot while Reconciling a Log; to access, use the right click (context) menu and choose the Trash tool.
    • It is now possible to "copy a Log" from one day to another. The example is that you remember working a Log last week that you'd like to make tomorrows Log look similar to... so you can now utilize the Apply Log... tool (available from the Log right click (context) menu) to choose any other Log that you'd like to "apply" to the currently working Log. Upon doing so, all spots are bumped, the existing Log cleared and the working Log will then look the same as the chosen Log; at this point you can now work the Log normally. As a side note, understand that this change does not take affect until you save the working Log. You can also optionally leverage the "yellow bar" to apply the change to all future similar days.
    • (Sales) A sales person can now view/print/export a Statement for a Customer that they "own" (where they are the default sales person).
  • Modified
    • When viewing Trashed Copy in the CopyList window and using the Duplicate tool, the newly created Copy is not 100% trashed/in-trashed when changing the status in the Copy window from Trashed to OK. This has been corrected.
    • (Templates) When deleting a Log Note in the Templates window (in the treeview navigation pane), the Log Note is deleted; however, the application also appears to be locked up. This has been corrected.

Edit

1902


  • Added
    • It is now possible to Cancel a Contract line item by using the context menu; this in addition and as an alternative to trashing the individual spots on the SpotDetail window. To access, right click on a Contract line item and choose the Cancel tool.
    • (Essentials) The Ad-ID column is now visible on printed Invoices by default.
  • Modified
    • The Traffic Read-Only and Billing Read-Only roles can no longer view the sales commission percentage of Contract or Invoice; unless, of course, they happen to be the sales person of record on the Contract. More specifically, the sales commission percentage field can now only be seen by the following roles: Administrator, Administrator Assistant, Traffic, Billing and/or if the person logged in happens to be the sales person "on record" for the Contract being viewed. Additionally, a similar treatment has been applied to:
      • The Sales % column of the Annual Sales Review, Annual Sales Review (Accrual), Billing History, Billing History (Accrual), Contract, Revenue Projection, Revenue Projection (Accrual) reports.
      • The Sales % and Sales $ columns of the Broadcast Accrual, Commission, Invoice, Payment report.
    • Renamed the Percent and Commission columns of the Broadcast Accrual report to Sales % and Sales $ respectively (for consistency with across reports).
    • Renamed the Agency Commission, Sales Commission % and Sales Commission columns of the Invoice report to Agency $, Sales % and Sales $ respectively (for consistency across reports.)
    • (EmailMyTimes) If this add-on is the only email add-on available, the Customer window incorrectly reports an data error on the Scheduling tab. Additionally, the EmailMyTimes section is not visible on the Scheduling tab. This is has been corrected.

Edit

1901


  • Modified
    • The Invalid Contract/Rotation/Copy report was modified last year to include better support for "rescheduled" and "trashed" spots; however, it didn't take into account the later addition of being able to "reschedule" beyond the end date of a Contract line item. This update modifies the report so that this situation is accounted for.
    • (BETA) With this update, it is now possible to view a Ticket that is open by someone else in read-only mode. It no longer presents a message stating that someone else has it open; instead, the title of the Ticket contains the name of the person that has it open in parenthesis. When this is the case, the Ticket is in complete read-only mode, meaning that no changes can be made except by the person that currently has the Ticket open.
    • (BETA) The keyword field on the Ticket filter tab has been updated so that it will resize properly when resizing the window and/or tab.
  • Exceptions
    • ArgumentNullException in Contracts.ReloadCustomerListAsync(): If you were to load/refresh the Contracts window and, timed just right (ie. fast enough or where the time it takes to reload the data was abnormally lengthy), close the window before it has time to completely finish loading the information from the server... the application would crash (due to the window no longer existing).

Edit

August 2016

Edit

1900


  • Added
    • (Email) When sending invoices via email, it is now possible to utilize the optional customername token in the subject and/or body template.
    • (Email) When sending contract confirmations via email, it is now possible to utilize the optional customername token in the subject and/or body template.
    • (BETA) The Tickets window Filter tab now supports keyword capability.
    • (BETA) It is no longer possible to open a Ticket that is currently flagged as being opened by someone else; a message is presented letting you know who the other person is.
  • Modified
    • When archiving or un-archiving Contracts, the confirmation window no longer uses the word trash; instead, it uses the word archiving.
    • (BETA) With the addition of identifying the primary operator within Tickets, the mechanism to "turn a frown upside down" was inadvertently disabled for the primary operator; this is corrected in this update.
  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceException in Agency.InitializeDataAsync(): When opening an agency and encountering a retry/cancel dialog; choosing cancel ends with an exception.

Edit

1899.1


  • Modified
    • When using the optional Commission % column on the Billing window; the value was incorrectly being displayed in such a way that the commission percentage was rounded to the nearest whole number. It is important to understand that this was just a display issue; there was no impact to the actual invoice numbers.

Edit

1899


  • Modified
    • (BETA) It is now possible to create a new Ticket directly from the Tickets window and specify the type (task, bug, new feature, etc.) and what you believe the priority to be. Additionally, whenever you comment on a Ticket that is currently assigned to you, the Ticket will automatically be reassigned to the support queue and reopened if not currently set to an Open status. This is to ensure that someone in the support queue will see the comment that you've added. There have been additional tweaks and adjustments made in an effort to continue to fine tune the usage related to Tickets.

Edit

1898.1


  • Modified
    • In the effort to account for Tax on the Paid status (in the Contracts windows), the Agency Commission amount was incorrectly being applied as a addition instead of a subtraction. This has been adjusted accordingly.

    • When working with a Contract, the Rotation tab will now present a "warning" glyph whenever there is at least one spot based (non-OAR) line item and no defined rotations (in addition to the fact that it shows there is a 0 count).
    • Renamed the Delete tool to Remove (context menu) in the Rotation window.
    • Modified the Rotation window so that the context menu is available when items exist in the rotation and no valid Copy currently exists (for example, all the copy has expired or been trashed/archived).
    • (EZ-NET) When working with Premiere Radio Networks, some shows are scheduled using a "shorthand" notation that, prior to this release, was not translating as being "up to 7 days" ("Mon-Sun") repeating the same "schedule" for the day range. This release has been updated to support this "shorthand" entry and will duplicate the "schedule" for these entries across all of the days specified using this "shorthand". This change has been removed; when encountering this sort of "shorthand" notation, the schedule will just be created for the "first day of the encountered week" (per client feedback).

Edit

1897.1


  • Modified
    • Modified the Paid status (in the Contracts windows) to account for Tax.

Edit

1897


  • Modified
    • (BETA) On the Dashboard, the Feedback Tickets feature has been significantly updated with a completely new ticket management window including easily viewing "open" tickets, who these tickets are currently assigned, complete filtering capabilities and ability to find a specific ticket (by number).

Edit

1895


  • Modified
    • This version marks a major milestone being achieved; Premier 2013, Premier 2014, Premier 2015 and Premier 2016 are officially no more. Because of this, the "compatibility mode" features for these products have been removed.
    • When reconciling a Log, if the only thing modified on the Log is an aired time the mechanism in place that determines whether or not the Log needs to be saved is not activated; this has been corrected in this update. To work around this until this update is available, just toggle the Reconcile check box on/off to activate the "Log has been modified" state.
    • When working with Customers that are archived in the Billing window, the Customer name is no longer "missing". Instead, the name is now appended with the word "Archived" or "Trashed" in parenthesis.
    • Due to the improvements made over the past year and a half, Customers that have been trashed are no longer automatically excluded from the Billing window. In other words, if you trash a Customer that has an active Contract that can produce an Invoice; that Invoice will be presented in the Billing window.
    • (EZ-NET) EZ-NET has been updated to support "partial licensing" allowing for some Stations to be fully licensed for EZ-NET while allowing for other stations to be licensed for just the "Barter" portion that limits the feature to just the Sun Broadcast Group network and the RadioTraffic show.
    • (EZ-NET) When working with Premiere Radio Networks, some shows are scheduled using a "shorthand" notation that, prior to this release, was not translating as being "up to 7 days" ("Mon-Sun") repeating the same "schedule" for the day range. This release has been updated to support this "shorthand" entry and will duplicate the "schedule" for these entries across all of the days specified using this "shorthand".
  • Added
    • (BETA) Introducing the Ticket feature located on the Dashboard under the Feedback menu. All of the Smiles and Frowns that you've sent are now able to be seen; meaning they no longer go into a "void". You can track the activity and even comment if necessary. Additionally, you can now easily turn a frown upside down by using the smile button located on the Ticket window. Please understand that this is a work-in-progress feature and should be considered as "beta".

Edit

July 2016

Edit

1894.2


  • Modified
    • When working with a Log that is within the first seven days (initial usage); whenever the structure of the log is modified and applied, the structure of the following days in the first seven is also modified from the date applied forward. In other words, if you save and apply the structure to Wednesday, Thursday through Sunday will now look like Wednesday. The intent behind this is that when you work Monday, you can quickly apply those changes to the "rest of the week". You can then jump to Friday, make changes for Friday applying to Saturday and Sunday. Make changes to Saturday and Sunday is also applied. So by working as little as three logs prepares all seven days for future usage. This change has no affect on existing clients that already have their logs established.

Edit

1894.1


  • Added
    • Verified compatibility with Microsoft Windows 10 "Anniversary Update" (aka Version 1607).

Edit

1894


  • Added
    • The Contracts window can now leverage the Cancel Date optional column in the Contract view.
  • Modified
    • The layout of the Contracts window (Contract area) was inadvertently modified in the v1893 update as to the location of the New button being "pushed" off of the screen. This has been corrected in this update.

Edit

1893


  • Added
    • The Contracts window has been improved by splitting the Trash tool into the Archive and Trash tools for both the Customer and Contract lists. The main menu has also been improved by having both a View->Archived and View->Trashed menu toggles.

Edit

1892


  • Added
    • (EZ-NET) Announcing "Refetch"... it is now possible to "update" the schedule of a show with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. To do so, you'll find the schedule in question, right click and choose "Refetch". This will begin the "Fetch" process for the currently selected show including the currently selected schedule. For any new schedules, those will import as usual; however, for the currently selected schedule... magic happens. Anything that has already been scheduled will be retained and all future days will be trashed. The future days will be re-imported and added to the existing schedule. All rotations will be removed that are no longer valid (future) and new rotations will be added to replace these days / line items. This provides us with some record that a "Refetch" has occurred and addresses the underlying need to update the schedule due to the network change.
  • Modified
    • (Canada) The Tax features are now included as part of this add-on.
  • Exceptions
    • ArgumentException in Contract.SetEnabledState(): When an Administrator on a different computer deletes a Contract and the another person is in AR tries to right click on an Invoice to view the Contract, the application crashes due to the Contract related to the Invoice is now gone. This is now handled more gracefully.

Edit

1891.1


  • Modified
    • Corrected an issue that prevented the Customer Placement to be set to a default of 10.
    • The Log will now take into account "unfinished" Logs when using the Open tool instead of just not including Logs more than 6 months old.

Edit

1891


  • Modified
    • Under some circumstances there appears to be a "timing" issue between the moment where you are asked if you wish to reverse/finalize multiple Invoices in AR and the actual point where (after stating "yes") the reversing/finalizing actually takes place causing only one item to be reversed/finalized. This issue should now be resolved.

Edit

1890


  • Added
    • It is now possible to use multiple selection mode to Finalize Invoices in the AR window.
    • In order to better "assist" in reversing and finalizing all Invoices related to the "correction mode" process (if necessary); it is now possible to select all related Invoices to a particular Contract by using the ALT+click action on any Invoice related to the Contract. This action makes it easy to quickly highlight all the related Invoices that need to be reversed, modify the Contract and then quickly highlight all the related Invoices to finalize.
  • Modified
    • When the Include Rotation Summary on Confirmations and Combine Date/Time on Confirmations options (Group) are enabled; the date/time column on a printed Contract in the Rotation section is shown as "* UNKNOWN *". This has been updated to show the date and time as expected.
    • There have been several tweaks to how the highlight bar is made visible when transitioning between the Customer list and the Transactions list in the AR window to better reflect the actual "highlight" effect being enabled/visible.
    • When Finalizing an Invoice in the AR window, an email is no longer automatically sent (if configured). If emailing is desired, you are now required to choose to manually send the email. (Alternatively, you can email this and any others pending emailing by doing so from the Billing window.)
    • When Finalizing an Invoice in the AR window, the prompt to print is no longer presented. To print the Invoice after manually finalizing, you must manually choose to do so. (Alternatively, you can print this and any others pending printing by doing so from the Billing window.)

Edit

1889


  • Added
    • It is now possible to override the default Placement (a 5) on a per Customer basis.
    • Administrators now have the ability to modify the names of the Placement values; this can be done in Settings.
  • Modified
    • When duplicating, creating from a package or revising a Contract for a Customer that is flagged as Prepay, the message stating that the account is prepay has been removed with the addition of the Prepay checkbox addition in v1888.
    • The Log window contains an optional Spread column that serves to present where the Contract/line of the currently selected spot is already placed on the Log to assist in finding the "best" window for where else you might be able to place the currently selected spot. After further review, it makes more sense that this evaluation/presentation be based on the Customer, not the Contract/line given that the goal is to create the "best overall sound". This update modifies the Spread column so as to present the placement on a Customer basis.

Edit

1888.1


  • Modified
    • (Revise) When there is a pending Contract that targets a Log, there is a message displayed on the Log; when clicking on this message, the list shows the "internal" Contract number not the revision chain as it should. This has been resolved.

Edit

1888


  • Added
    • The AR window now includes the ability to see trashed payments and/or adjustments (in addition to trashed Customers) when activating the View->Trashed menu option.
    • We've added an optional column in the PendingContracts window to support Prepay in the continuing effort to improve support related to prepayment Contracts.

Edit

1887.1


  • Modified
    • Added rounding protection the Invoice accrual cache.

Edit

1887


  • Added
    • It is now possible to utilize a prepayment flag on the Contract window. This checkbox will automatically be checked for any new Contracts for Customers who are currently set to the Prepay status. Additionally, this checkbox can be checked / unchecked as often as desired regardless of Contract status; meaning no need for correction mode.
    • The Log window has been updated to include the optional Agency and Prepay columns on the actual Log editor area, the Bump list, the MakeGood list and the Log Summary view.
    • The Contract report now includes an optional Prepay column.
  • Modified
    • With the addition of the prepayment flag on the Contract window, the message box that reminds you that the Customer is Prepay has been removed when you create a new Contract. When you create a new Contract, the Prepay checkbox is automatically checked... serving the same purpose.

Edit

1886.1


  • Modified
    • The server now processes invoices for accrual reporting regardless of whether or not accrual-based reports are currently available (product/license/etc.) in an effort to more easily transition between the these reports being available or not.

Edit

1886


  • Added
    • It is now possible to leverage multiple selection mode to Force Bump spots in the SpotDetail window.
    • This update includes very preliminary support for the Amagi AutomationSystem.
  • Modified
    • The modules region on the Dashboard has been updated to no longer require double-click to active each module; instead, activation can now be done using a simple single mouse click to better support touch-enabled devices.
    • The multi selection mode available in the Contracts window wasn't working as expected with regards to un-trashing multiple Contracts; this has been corrected.
    • (Legacy Report Templates) If the Legacy Report Templates add-on is no longer available/active, neither are the Reports related to this add-on. This is done for those that decide they "no longer need this add-on" allowing for the ability to "turn off the add-on" (no longer pay for it) with expected results.

Edit

June 2016

Edit

1885


  • Modified
    • The multi selection mode available in the Contracts window wasn't working as expected with regards to trashing multiple Contracts; this has been corrected.
    • The AR window appears to be loading the initial list of transactions twice for the initially selected Customer (the first in the list). This has been addressed.
    • The Add Payment and Add Adjustment buttons are not visible in the AR window until you switch from the initial selected Customer to another. This has been addressed.

Edit

1884


  • Modified
    • It has been brought to our attention that a recent update to TeamViewer (a product that we have no relationship with) has introduced a problem with regards to our product not being able to successfully complete the shutdown process. We have no answers from TeamViewer as to the change(s) that they have done and they have yet to provide us with any clues as to what we should try to do to remedy the problem. Given the lack of information, we are still attempting to come up with a resolution even without their assistance. This update, hopefully, addresses the issue; but in all honesty it is a complete guess and we will have to monitor the results to see if we've succeeded.
    • (EZ-NET) When opening the Show in the EZ-NET window, the Scheduling tab contains a red exclamation while none of the fields on that tab are displaying any sort of a problem. This problem was introduced with the recent update that addresses the Salespeople that are trashed not being included in the Customer window; which the Show window utilizes. The issue is addressed in this update.

Edit

1883


  • Added
    • It is now possible to leverage multiple selection mode to reverse items in the AR window.
    • It is now possible to leverage multiple selection mode to remove items from the Log in the invalid copy on the Log window.
  • Modified
    • The Customer window has been updated to better support trashed Agencies, Salespeople and Conflicts by not showing the trashed entries unless the existing Customer settings are set to an actual trashed entry for one of these fields.
    • Improved support for trashed Agencies and Salespeople in the Contract window; specifically with regards to usage of correction mode.

Edit

1882.1


  • Modified
    • Trashing a Conflict no longer reset the Customer primary and/or secondary conflict to None.

Edit

1882


  • Modified
    • The ChangePassword window has been modified so that it no longer "resets" the Administrator role when it is utilized by an Administrator.

Edit

1881


  • Added
    • It has come to our attention that there are many, many, many accounts that are configured in a manner that makes it too simple to determine the password; opening your data up to external forces "causing problems". In addition to this, we've discovered that there exists active accounts that are configured across multiple systems using the same username and password combination; accounts that are using simple names that are "too common". If the User account is currently configured to use a password that is "questionable", meaning one that could easily be determined, the logon process will now require that this password be changed before usage of the product is allowed. In order to handle this is the most expedient manner possible, the User is notified of this during their logon and walked through the process of changing their password in order to continue.
  • Modified
    • The ChangePassword window has been updated as follows:
      • The new password and the previous password can no longer be the same.
      • The password can no longer be "too similar" to the username.
      • The password can no longer be a password that is on the "The Top 500 Worst Passwords of All Time" list.
      • If the confirm password does not match the new password, only the confirm password displays the red exclamation notice.
    • The User window has been updated as follows:
      • The password can no longer be "too similar" to the username.
      • The password can no longer be a password that is on the "The Top 500 Worst Passwords of All Time" list.

Edit

1880


  • Modified
    • (Virtual Stamps) In a recent update, the checking of the availability of the Virtual Stamps Add-On was inadvertently broken; this has been corrected.
    • When using the CTRL+F key while the focus is on the Customer pane of the AR window, an extra search field is displayed that shouldn't be. This has been corrected.
    • In the most recent update related to the Spread column on the Log, it was no longer possible to utilize the Reschedule and/or Trashed tools on the Bump list without first saving the Log. This has been corrected.
  • Exceptions
    • ArgumentException in Log.RescheduleBumpItem(): When rescheduling a spot on the Log **into the past** causing it to end up on the Make Good list of the current Log, the application crashes. This has been corrected with this update.
    • InvalidOperationException in Dashboard.FormClosing(): Although unable to reproduce the specific circumstances which this exception occurs, we suspect it has to do with launching the software and exiting before it has completely finished loading causing some timing/confusion during the checking of the feature/options available to the account. We've made some changes in an effort to more gracefully handle this behavior.
    • ArgumentNullException in Contract.Load(): Although unable to reproduce the specific circumstances which this exception occurs, we suspect it has to do with opening a Contract and immediately closing the window before has completed the loading process causing the exception to occur because the window no longer exists by the time the loading has completed. We've made some changes in an effort to more gracefully handle this behavior.

Edit

1879.1


  • Modified
    • Contracts that contain spots and OAR line(s) appear to incorrectly be determining the status as "completed" when all spots have been completed however all of the OAR have not. This update modifies this behavior so that OAR is reviewed in such a way that if the line has one or more OAR entries that haven't been either invoiced or trashed, the line is considered running. (Removed the check as to whether or not the line is started.)

Edit

1879


  • Modified
    • The AR window has been modified to prevent the addition of a Payment and/or Adjustment while the window is still "pulling the details". It appears that it was possible to, while still transitioning between one Customer to another (before it completed), attempt to enter a Payment and/or Adjustment which would show the details for the previously completed loaded Customer. This has been modified and should reduce/remove the confusion presented when attempting to add a Payment and/or Adjustment for a Customer that is no longer being displayed. The details were correct, just not for the currently actively being displayed Customer. In other words, no "cross-posting" post Payments and/or Adjustments occurred; this is simply a display issue that caused confusion/concern due to activating the add payment and/or add adjustment button before the details of the currently selected (but previously successfully loaded) Customer was completed.
    • Made significant changes to the Spread column on the Log window (Bump list) in order to add support for the column leverage "word wrap".
    • The Comment column on the Bump list of the Log window now supports "word wrap".

Edit

1878


  • Added
    • You now have the ability to press the CTRL+G hotkey combination in the Log to "jump" to a specific time on the Log.
    • In the Log, the "hour" buttons in the toolbar will now evaluate the content of the Log to determine which hours are actually available; disabling any hours that are not for those of our clients that do not run a full days Log.
  • Modified
    • Modified the Station column on the CopyList window and Copy tab of the Customer window so that it is visible by default.
  • Exceptions
    • SqlException in PrintInvoiceListDialog.InitializeData(): When opening the PrintInvoiceListDialog there was no "retry/cancel" protection in place so the application crashes when there is a communication issue between the computer and the servers during this process. This has been corrected by adding "retry/cancel" protection.
    • InvalidCastException in EZ-NET.RowStyle(): Not sure of the circumstances that exist when this issue occurs within the process of drawing a line through the trashed Customers in the EZ-NET window; however, hardened this checking to prevent this exception from being possible in the future.

Edit

1877


  • Added
    • It is now possible to use multiple selection mode on the Rotation tab in the Contract window.
    • It is now possible to Trash rotation item(s) on the Contract window; removing them from active use.
    • When working with rotations, multiple selection mode is now available when adding Copy to a Rotation.
  • Modified
    • It is no longer possible to Delete a rotation item on the Contract window; see above.
  • Exceptions
    • SqlException in Templates.SetTemplateAs(): When saving a Template from one Station to another there was no "retry/cancel" protection in place so the application crashes when there is a communication issue between the computer and the servers during this process. This has been corrected by enabling the "retry/cancel" protection for this process.
    • UnauthorizedException in Logging.Write(): When attempting to write the RT event log and the path to this file is located on the network and the password on that server expires an exception occurs causing the application to exit. We've modified this so that a message with the details is presented to the user instead of an exception.

Edit

1876


  • Added
    • (EZ-NET) The EZ-NET window has been significantly improved with several new capabilities:
      • Introducing MULTIPLE SELECTION MODE. It is now possible to highlight multiple schedules and use the context menu to access the available actions that can be applied across the currently selected items. At this time, the available tools are Trash and Un-Trash.
      • The Status column of the EZ-NET window no longer displays "Paid" as a status; it instead displays "Completed" since these schedules aren't able to be "paid". In addition to this, the "Completed" schedules are now presented in a "faded" text, matching the behavior found in other portions of the application.
      • Added the ability to Trash and Un-Trash "Completed" schedules.
      • The Customer pane of the EZ-NET window has been updated to match the Customer pane of the Contracts and AR windows with regards to Trashed entries.
      • The Delete tool now requires that you use the CONTROL key to gain access.
      • When refreshing the window, the highlighted item is automatically reselected.
      • When initially loading the window, the schedules portion is no longer automatically focused.
    • It is now possible for the Billing role to access the Auto Apply tool on the Transaction window.
  • Modified
    • It is no longer necessary to have any options enabled for the Administrator Assistant role to access the Auto Apply tool on the Transaction window.
  • Exceptions
    • Win32Exception in StartWithShellExecuteEx(): When clicking on the red bar in the Log; after this update, the result will be Microsoft Windows opening the path to where the expected file should be but isn't.
    • DeletedRowInaccessibleException in CopyList.LoadDataSourceAsync(): The CopyList window attempts to filter out all copy that is retrieved for any and all stations that are no longer active. The recent update introduced a problem where this filtering caused an issue when attempting to improve the "Status" of the Copy. This is now resolved.

Edit

1875


  • Added
    • When managing Copy (Customer window or the CopyList), the Status column now includes Expired for Copy is set to OK as the status and is past the end date (expired).
  • Modified
    • The join.me window has been modified so that it accepts numbers only, is limited to no more than 9 numbers and will not allow the OK button to be pressed unless there are 9 numbers.
  • Exceptions
    • ArgumentNullException in AR.BuildTransactionDisplay(): When moving from one Customer to another in the AR window and the Transaction tab is currently selected, during the limited window while the details are being retrieved from the server quickly switching from the Transaction tab to the Statement tab causes the application to crash... this has been corrected.

Edit

1874


  • Added
    • Introducing the optional Applied To column in AR that shows what Invoices each payment/adjustment is applied to.
  • Modified
    • The Comment column in the AR window has been modified to support "word wrap"; meaning that it is no longer cut off when the column isn't wide enough to display the information, it instead will make the line "taller" in order to allow the information to be displayed across multiple lines.
    • The New... and New from Package... tools are no longer available in Contracts if no Customers are available/selected.
    • Modified the join.me process so that the code can be entered directly from the software instead of trying to find the right location on http://join.me to do so.

Edit

1873


  • Modified
    • The Invoice count field on the Contract window (when enabled) was positioned a "little off"; this has been corrected.

Edit

1872


  • Added
    • You can now leverage the optional Revenue Source and Revenue Type columns in the Contracts and AR windows on the Customer lists.
    • You can now utilize the optional GE$ column on the Contracts window to reflect the currently estimated gross amount (gross less canceled, trashed, revised, etc.).
    • It is now possible to the "Un-Trash" tool in the SpotDetail window.
    • You can now make the SpotDetail window full screen using the "maximize button" (upper-right hand corner of the window).
    • When Trashing or Un-Trashing items on the SpotDetail window, it is now necessary to answer an "are you sure?" prompt.
    • You can now use the CTRL+T hotkey to trash/un-trash items on the SpotDetail window.
  • Modified
    • The Revenue Projection report was incorrectly subtracting the wrong NX$ columns from the N$ columns producing the incorrect values for the NE$ columns; this has been corrected.
    • The Revenue column on the Contracts window as been renamed G$ to match the Reports and to act as the counterpart to the added GE$. This amount represent the original total gross amount prior to any cancelation, trashing, revising, etc.
    • The Placement combo list on the Contract line item has been modified from being a "static" list to be retrieved from the server (dynamic) in preparation for additional features still to come.
    • The Force Trashed... tool has been renamed to Trash... in the SpotDetail window.
    • When the recent edition of multiple selection mode, the F5 (refresh) tool in SpotDetail was not completely resetting the highlighted item; this has been corrected.
  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceExecption in ReloadListAsync(): In the SpotDetail window, if you repeatedly press the F5 key, the application will crash. This is now handled gracefully.

Edit

1871


  • Exceptions
    • InvalidOperationException: When performing a software update and the Log happens to be open at the time containing changes, a message is presented asking if you would like to close the Log anyway. When choosing No, the application crashes. This is now handled more gracefully by aborting the update process in the event that No is chosen.

Edit

1870


  • Added
    • It is now possible to use the CTRL+T hotkey to Trash a Contract in the Contracts window.
    • The speed of Trashing Contracts has been significantly reduced/improved.
  • Modified
    • For the Administrator role, the Delete... tool available in several areas of the application will no longer be visible by default; we are adding an additional protection in place to prevent the accidental deletion of data. This is in addition to the four-digit confirmation being presented as we are also considering utilizing a similar mechanism for "mass-trash". In order to access the Delete... tool, it is now necessary to press the CONTROL key while right clicking on an item.
    • (Revise) The Print Confirmations window was not displaying the virtualized "revise" Contract numbers; this has been corrected.
    • (Revise, Email) The Email Confirmations was not displaying the virtualized "revise" Contract numbers; this has been corrected.
    • (Revise, Email) When emailing a Contract confirmation, the virtualized "revise" Contract number was not being utilized causing confusion when the email was received.
    • (Edi) Under some very specific circumstances where multiple Invoices happen to exist during the same billing process queue (the click of the process button) and these Invoices are for different billing cycles based on the Contract line items crossing the multiple billing cycles and using the batch EDI file mode (default), the Invoice items are "duplicated" across the multiple EDI Invoice entries for the Contract line items that happen to exist across the multiple billing cycles. This circumstance is now handled as expected.
    • When Trashing a Contract in the Contracts window, the highlighted Contract now updates in a manner that is more of an expected behavior.
    • When Duplicating a Contract in the Contracts window, the newly created Contract is now highlighted automatically.
    • If a Contract was Trashed before it was ever started (Pending), it was not possible to Un-Trash; this has been corrected.
    • When the recent edition of multiple selection mode, the CTRL+F find tool in Contracts was not completely highlighting the found Contract; this has been corrected.

Edit

May 2016

Edit

1869


  • Modified
    • The Copy tab on the Customer window was not remembering the layout when closing the Customer window under some usage scenarios.
    • The layout of the Customer window, specifically with regards to the Copy tab, was shared with the Copy window accessible from the Dashboard. This has been modified so that the layout settings are now completely separate and unrelated to one another.

Edit

1868


  • Modified
    • Under some rare circumstances, the Copy tab of the Customer window is sized incorrectly causing the New... button to not be visible. Additionally, when resizing the Customer window, the Copy tab was not resizing to fill the tab/window properly. Both of these issues should now be resolved.
  • Exceptions
    • When managing Copy on the Customer window, the application crashes when attempting to utilize the Duplicate... tool.

Edit

1867


  • Added
    • Several enhancements have been made to the Customer window with regards to managing Copy on the Copy tab including:
      • The addition of a View menu containing:
        • Trash - A toggle that, when enabled, will show all Copy that has been trashed.
        • Reset.. - Will reset the columns to the "factory defaults".
        • Refresh - Reloads the Copy list from the server. You can also use the F5 hot-key to accomplish the same thing.
      • There is also a "status bar" that will detail what is happening while it is happening with regards to working within the Copy tab.
      • When including trashed items, there is a line drawn through those items (in the same manner as throughout the reset of the application).
      • The Copy tab also supports MULTIPLE SELECTION MODE.
  • Modified
    • Based on usage details that we have received, we have modified the Essentials product in three key ways related to managing Copy. The first being that it is now easier to access a Customer from the Contracts window by being able to double-click in the Customers pane to open the Customer window. We've also significantly enhanced how Copy is managed from within the Customer window (see above). Finally, because the usage pattern has shown that the majority of our clients tend to manage Copy from the Customer window, the CopyList icon on the Dashboard has been removed and made part of the Enhanced Copy Option Pack.

Edit

1866


  • Added
    • It is now possible to right click (context) in the Contracts window on a Customer that has no visible Contracts and access the New.. and Create from Package... tools.
    • The AutomationCommands window has been significantly improved with several new capabilities:
      • It is now possible to Merge AutomationCommands.

  • Modified
    • The Contracts window, the Primary Conflict, Station(s) and Sales Person columns have been modified to reflect that they are currently set to a Trashed entity by appending the phrase " (Trashed)".

Edit

1865


  • Modified
    • (Sales, EmailMyTimes) Cleared up an issue that caused the sending emails to sales people when locking the Logs not to be sent; the issue was related to the consolidation of the Premier products (EmailMyTimes was dropped from Premier 2015). We've reintroduced the EmailMyTimes as a "legacy" add-on to Premier in order to ease the migration from prior products.

Edit

1864


  • Modified
    • When evaluating Contracts that have been canceled, Contracts that have been canceled in the future and canceled before they've ever started are now shown as Aborted (instead of P.Cancel).
    • The Undo Cancel and Undo Revision tools are being reintroduced as of this version (Administrator role only - as previously the case) in the Contracts window.

Edit

1863


  • Exceptions
    • KeyNotFoundException in SetEnabledState(): The issue occured when attempting to open an existing line item on a Contract after activating Correction Mode in order to make some changes to an approved Contract. This was introduced due to the changes made making it possible to modify Placement and Avail Type on a Contract line item without having to activate "Correction Mode".
    • SqlException and Win32Exception: The Trashing/Un-Trashing of Contracts now contains "retry/cancel protection" for circumstances where the network connection dips and/or the server is too busy.

Edit

1862


  • Added
    • It is now possible to modify the Placement and Avail Type on a Contract line item without having to activate "Correction Mode".
  • Modified
    • When initially opening the Contracts window, the status bar wasn't consistently showing that the Contracts were being retrieved; steps have been taken to make sure that the status is updated to represent what is happening during the initial launch of this window.
    • (Sales) With the recent changes to make it possible to modify the Invoice Type and/or Secondary Conflict, the Sales Add-On ability to allow a sales person to modify the Notes field of a new/pending Contract was inadvertently disabled; we've made changes to allow this field for the Sales role.
    • When working with QuickPay (AR), if there are one or more unpaid Debit Adjustments, these Debit Adjustments were being included in the to be paid Invoices; since these Debit Adjustments weren't part of the selection list, these are now being filtered when leveraging QuickPay.
  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceException in AutoApplyRow(): If QuickPay (AR) was utilized in a system with a single Station, the application would crash.

Edit

1861


  • Added
    • Introducing MULTI-SELECT RESCHEDULE on the Log window Bump and Make Good lists.
  • Modified
    • The ability to reschedule from the Make Good list on the Log window appears to have been inadvertently dropped due to the changes in the most recent update(s).

Edit

1860


  • Modified
    • The majority of the icons in the Settings window weren't able to be launched if the ReleaseNotes window was also open. This has been resolved in this update.
  • Exception
    • NotImplementedException: The CopyList window View->Trashed menu is throwing a "NotImplementedException"; this will be resolved in the this update.

Edit

April 2016

Edit

1858.1


  • Modified
    • Contracts that contain only OAR line(s) appear to incorrectly be determining the status as "completed". This update modifies this behavior so that OAR is reviewed in such a way that if the line has started and there are still one or more OAR entries that haven't been either invoiced or trashed, the line is considered running.

Edit

1858


  • Added
    • In order to attempt to "keep two opposing sides happy", the Payment report now includes an optional Total column that represents the "total" of the portion of the payment applied in relationship to the actual Invoice "total" amount. In other words... if the N$ doesn't provide the resulting number to your liking, try the Total column.
  • Modified
    • The AR window has been modified in such a way that any Invoices that are still gathering are no longer included in the Balance column as there seems to be enough feedback to warrant this change due to "confusion" with the Balance on the AR side not aligning with the Balance on the Customer side.
    • Under certain conditions, it might not be possible for an Administrator to modify the sales person's default commission. The Administator Assistant and Traffic roles are unaffected by this problem; so as a temporary work around, those roles can make these changes. The issue is resolved in this update.

Edit

1857.2


  • Modified
    • Under certain conditions, it was not possible to Trash a Pending Contract from the Contracts window. This has been corrected.

Edit

1857.1


  • Modified
    • (Email) For those clients transitioning from Premier 2013, the inability to email Invoices from the AR window should now be remedied.

Edit

1857


  • Added
    • There is an additional "watchdog" added to the AR window that will review the Agency Commission amount on the Invoices; if any issue(s) are found, the Invoice will be presented in the color red.
  • Modified
    • The ability to duplicate has been updated to be tied to the Enhanced Contract Option Pack and Enhanced UI Option Pack; the new versions that combine the best of the Premier 2013, 2014 and 2015 releases.
    • Under some circumstances, the revise of Contracts that have Daily lines was not able to be modified. This has been corrected.

Edit

1856


  • Modified
    • If a Contract hasn't been approved prior to it's specified start date, the Contract was showing in red in Contracts. This has been modified to show orange since it isn't a "call support" level problem.
    • The color used to represent spots that have aired outside of their intended range during Log reconciliation has been changed to yellow instead of red since this isn't a "call support" level problem.
    • The Log editor has been enhanced by removing some extraneous "noise" for non-Avail type Log entries.
    • Under certain circumstances, the Daily (calendar) Contract entry is not available; this has been corrected.

Edit

1855.1


  • Modified
    • The Spot Rate report has been modified to show the revision Contract numbers when revisions are being utilized instead of the "internal" number.

Edit

1855


  • Added
    • The User window now contains status details when loading information (bottom left portion of window).
    • (Goals) It is now possible for a Traffic or Administrator Assistant role to modify sales goals using the SalesPeople window.
    • (Report Templates) It is now possible to delegate the ability to create new Report Templates using the Save As... menu to the Administrator Assistant role. This is done by the Administrator in the Group options. Enabling this option is NOT RECOMMENDED; see below.
  • Modified
    • The existing WARNING options (Group) have been modified to read NOT RECOMMENDED to better reflect the official recommendation for the enabling and usage of these particular options. It is the OFFICIAL stance of RadioTraffic.com that these options should not be enabled. Enabling these options is done so at the sole risk and sole responsibility of the Administrator. These options have been made available for our clients that have additional procedures and processes in place to mitigate the very possible negative outcomes that can and will affect the integrity of the data if these processes and procedures are not adhered to.
    • (Goals) The Goals tab of the User window has been modified to no longer tab-stop on the quarterly and annual read-only fields.
    • (Goals) The Goals report and variants are no longer available if this add-on is not available.
    • (Email/Goals) The User window has been updated to not attempt to pull email and/or goal information if these add-ons are not available.
    • (Email) The SalesPeople window has been modified to not display the email field the email information if the add-on is not available.
    • (Email) The SalesPeople window has been updated to not attempt to pull email information if this add-on is not available.
    • (Email) The Customer window will now gracefully handle the removal/disabling of the Email add-on.

Edit

1854


  • Added
    • Enhanced the Customer and transactions lists in AR with "group counts" and "group totals".
  • Modified
    • When using the new Premier profile, the Invoice document was not including the Ad-ID column, this has been corrected.
    • When using the new Premier profile, the Confirmation document was not honoring all of the available options (Group), this has been corrected.
    • When exporting a Contract Confirmation, the filename should only include an Agency if an actual Agency is needed; "None" is not an Agency and, as such, the export filename will no longer think that this is a valid Agency.
    • When working with avails on the Log or Templates, the overlap message is helpful; however, the OK button is still enabled when things aren't valid. We've modified it so that when the fields are invalid, the OK button is no longer available.

Edit

1853


  • Added
    • New hotkeys added to AR:
      • CTRL+T: Trash/Un-Trash currently highlighted Customer when "current focus" is on the Customers list.
      • Right Arrow: When "current focus" is on the Customers list in AR, will "switch focus" to the transaction list.
      • Left Arrow: When "current focus" is on the transaction list in AR, will "switch focus" to the Customers list.
    • In the AR window, the View->Trashed toggle now works with the Customers list.
    • The context menu on the Customers list in the AR window now contains a Trash...' or Un-Trash... tool when appropriate.
    • New hotkeys added to Contracts:
      • CTRL+T: Trash/Un-Trash currently highlighted Customer when "current focus" is on the Customers list.
    • The context menu on the Customers list in the Contracts window now contains a Trash...' or Un-Trash... tool when appropriate.
  • Modified
    • (Email) The ability to target different email addresses for Confirmations, Invoices and Statements is now available regardless of core product.
    • When creating a new Transaction (Payment or Adjustment), the experience is now more consistent with the Payment beginning the tab focus on the Type (Currency Type) field and the Adjustment beginning tab focus on the Type (Transaction Type) field. In this way, you can simply change the Type and tab to the Amount regardless of the type of Transaction.
    • When changing between "cash" and "trade" types in the Transaction window, the Revenue Type field will now transition between "Any" automatically (if already set to "Any" before the change).
    • Modified the Transaction window so that regardless of Payment or Adjustment, the Station, Revenue Source, Revenue Type and Sales Person column no longer state "Escrow" or "Any"; instead, going forward the wording will be consistent between the two types of Transaction and simply be "Any" for both.

Edit

1852


  • Added
    • The AR window now sends/retrieves the data to/from the server asynchronously; improving the overall responsiveness. In other words, the AR window has had nearly every button, menu, tool and display "touched" (pretty much a completely rebuild/refresh).
    • The payment/adjustment window (in AR) has been enhanced so that it is now possible to simply press the Enter key while focused on the amount or reference fields to short-circuit the commit (same as pressing the OK button).
    • The following hotkeys have been added to the transaction list in the AR window:
      • INS: Will create a new payment for the currently highlighted Customer.
      • DEL: Will delete a currently highlighted payment/adjustment.
      • CTRL+T: Trash the currently highlighted payment/adjustment.
  • Modified
    • The Print... tool (File menu) in AR will now present the printer dialog as it should (instead of incorrectly working exactly the same way as the Print Preview... tool).
    • The "please wait" windows have been removed from AR; the status bar at the bottom of the window now details the activity that is currently taking place.
    • The AR window will now clear the AR for a Customer while it is retrieving the Customer details.
    • (Sales) AR has been enhanced to better reflect sales person "ownership" in the Customer list section. Customers that are "owned" by the sales person viewing AR are shown normally while other Customers are shown in italic and possibly faded depending on feature(s) available.
    • (Sales) If a sales person can see a Customer in AR, they will now be able to see all of the related AR for that Customer regardless of whether or not "it was them". This is true for Customers that they specifically own, Customers that are owned by no one and Customers that they've at one time (historically) been associated with.
    • (Sales) When a sales person opens an Invoice that they weren't the sales person for, the sales commission field is "redacted".

Edit

1851


  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceException in CustomerDialog.InitializeComponent()
    • NullReferenceException in TransactionDialog.InitializeDataAsync()

Edit

1850


  • Modified
    • Several changes specifically targeting clients who utilize the Premier 2013 feature set (profile) affecting all Reports including the addition of Favorites, a new and improved Revenue Projection report and much more.

Edit

1849


  • Added
    • The CopyList window now has support for the following "hot-keys":

      • CTRL+U: Un-Trash the highlighted entry.
      • Escape: Close the window.
      • F5: Refresh the list.
    • We've added a Refresh tool to the View menu on CopyList window.
  • Modified
    • The CopyList window can now be minimized.
    • When launching the CopyList window, if it is already running but minimized (not visible), the existing window will be made visible and brought into focus.
    • The Contracts window will now "fade" Contracts that have been Paid.
    • The Trash.../Un-Trash... tool for Contracts has been modified to state Archive.../Un-Archive... for Contracts that have been Paid in an effort to better reflect the overall effect.

Edit

1848.1


  • Modified
    • Encountered a situation where one or more spots on an Invoice were trashed at the Invoice level (older Contract) but not trashed at the Contract level causing the Paid status to not be able to be determined (Contract still showing Completed). The Contract window now accounts for this particular scenario.

Edit

1848


  • Added
    • Introducing a new way to provide feedback to us! There is now a Feedback menu on the Dashboard that includes two new tools that we encourage you to take advantage of. These new tools are Send a Smile and Send a Frown and they provide the ability to easily contact us without having leaving RT!
  • Modified
    • The Release Notes tool has been moved from the View menu to the Feedback menu on the Dashboard.
    • Moved the Select Skin... tool from the Tools menu to the View menu on the Dashboard.
    • The Release Notes window can now be "behind" the Dashboard.
    • Repeatedly using the Release Notes tool on the Dashboard will no longer create multiple Release Notes windows; instead, the existing one will be brought "forward".
  • Exceptions
    • InvalidCastException in AR.EmailStatement: If the email Statement button is pressed on a customer that has an email but doesn't have a sales person (owner) associated, this exception can occur. Modified so that this circumstance is handled more gracefully by not attempting to create a CC for the sales person.

Edit

1847.2


  • Modified
    • The Statement document has been updated to include the invoice number as part of the overall entry sort.

Edit

1847.1


  • Modified
    • The Payment History report has been modified to honor the "lock-ins" (revenue source, revenue type, sales person) fields introduced in v1840.

Edit

1847


  • Added
    • It is now possible to utilize the Sales Person (aka Owner) column in left hand side (Customer list) of the Contracts and AR windows.
    • The CopyList window has been enhanced to be aware and support the Un-Trash... tool.
    • Informational glyphs have been added to the ContractLineItem window; at this time specifically for the Avail Type field.
    • It is now possible to use the optional Ad-ID column on the Invalid CoOp Scripts report.
    • The DEL key can now be used in the Log to remove Log elements (avails, automation commands, log notes, programs).
  • Modified
    • When modifying the transaction type on an adjustment to/from "Trade Credit Adjustment", the Revenue Type will now automatically be filtered accordingly.
    • When removing avails, the behavior now matches an automation command, log note or program being removed from the Log in that it prompts with a "are you sure" message.
    • The View->What's New... menu on the Dashboard has been relabeled to Release Notes.
    • The What's New window has been renamed to Release Notes to better reflect the overall intent and content that is avialable.

    • The Log Tools->Options...(LogOptions) window has been updated to better utilize/leverage the currently selected Skin.
    • The Times Invoice has been modified so that it no longer includes the rate "details" on a per line basis adjusting the Invoice usage a small amount so that it can be leveraged for use with "flat rate" type Contracts. Prior to this change, the Times and Times/Rates Invoices weren't that dissimilar; the usage of these two Invoices seemed to create more confusion than solution. With this change, the two Invoices now serve more clear and distinct scenarios.
    • The Contract window has been updated so that Contracts that are still in pending status when reviewed will update the summary portion using calculated details instead of it being left "blank" due to it not being approved.
  • Exceptions
    • InvalidCastException in ShowContractsAsync(): If you create a Contract, approve the Contract, then cancel the Contract and then proceed to open the Contract and delete every line item leveraging correction mode; the application will crash upon saving this "blank" but canceled Contract.

Edit

March 2016

Edit

1846


  • Modified
    • Collecting the information for the Dashboard has been modified in a way to "limit" the number of active connections which effectively "throttles" the collection of the information. Overall, the information is gathered in the same amount of time, however, it will appear to be slightly slower since the information is collected sequentially instead of in one massive burst. This change is done in an effort to reduce the number of active connections on the server in order to improve overall performance.
    • The Gathering tab in the Billing window has been modified to show the "billing date" along with the message "Holding" for those who are not leveraging the "billing every day" model.
    • The Customer window will now present an "information" glyph whenever the Billing Cycle and/or Invoice Type is/are set to "None".
    • The Contract window will now present an "information" glyph for any fields that are set to a value other than the currently selected Customer default value.
    • Whenever the Billing Cycle and/or Invoice Type on a Contract is set to a value other than the default (Customer) and the currently selected value(s) are set to "None" and "warning" glyph will be displayed next to these fields.
    • The Contract window will now display an enhanced summary section that now includes several key pieces of information such as "how many spots", "how many have been trashed", etc. Additionally, the summary area has also been modified to show "?" instead of "? item(s) total of ?" when this information is currently not known.
    • It is now possible to modify the Secondary Conflict and/or Invoice Type on approved contracts (without the need to utilize correction mode; assuming the role of a User allows for the modification of a Contract.
    • It is now possible to utilize the following keyboard shortcuts when working with the Rotation(s) tab on the Contract window:
      • Insert: New rotation.
      • Delete: Delete rotation.
      • CTRL+Up: Increase the priority of the highlighted rotation entry.
      • CTRL+Down: Decrease the priority of the highlighted rotation entry.
    • The Log window has been modified so that the Log Elements menu is unavailable until a Log has been successfully opened.
    • It is now possible to specify a Station Identifier for the RDS Phantom automation system.
  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceException in LogWindow.LoadLogAsync(): We've verified that this exception occurs when the Log is busy retrieving all of the details and, while this is still busy, the Log window is closed (before it has time to complete). We've modified the Log so that this action is no longer possible in order to prevent this exception from occurring.

  • Modified
    • In an effort to optimize the loading of the Rotation window, Copy was incorrectly identified as being invalid; this prevented adding/removing Copy to the Rotation. These changes are related to changes made to address the exception mentioned in v1844 ("Data.RowNotInTableException in RotationDialog.InitializeDataAsync()"). This has been corrected.

  • Added
    • It is now possible to leverage the Merge... tool in the Conflicts list.
  • Modified
    • When working with a Log, any changes made to the Log (structurally - avails, log notes, automation commands, programs) will now be recognized and you will be prompted whether or not you wish to apply those changes to all future logs of the same day. (Instead of it just automatically applying those changes.)
    • When working with AutomationCommand window, the command and cart # fields have been modified so that only one or the other is required.
    • It was pointed out that the Payment report incorrectly includes the tax amount in the N$ column which is inconsistent with the Invoice report and the Glossary. This has been corrected.
    • Worked with Rushworks automation engineers to improve the export that we provide for their automation system so that it has additional "export" controls in order to handle additional scenarios. See Rushworks documentation for additional details.
  • Exceptions
    • Data.RowNotInTableException in RotationDialog.InitializeDataAsync()

  • Modified
    • The Dashboard What's New... menu item now points to this document.
    • The tab order on the Payment/Adjustment window has been corrected.
    • Under some circumstances (as yet unknown), the Log appears to "forget" the sort order of the times. The current work around is to reset the layout by either using the software or manually removing the file. This update should remove the need to do so as it will now verify the layout as it is opened to make sure that these columns are sorted as they should be (regardless of what the layout files states - or doesn't).
    • Under very rare circumstances (as yet unknown), the Dashboard appears to display duplicated icons. This update should prevent this from happening in the future.
  • Exceptions
    • NullReferenceException in IsOptionPackBillingBasicsEnabled()
    • NullReferenceException in WebServiceRetryCancel()
