Context Menu

This menu is access by using the mouse to right click on any item in the list. See Common UI Behavior.

  • Reschedule
    Prompts for a new date ranging between the overall Contract start and end date to reschedule the item to another target date.
  • Force Available
    "Available" represents spots that have been created but never placed on a Log (or been forced into an available status by using this tool).
  • Force Bump
    "Bumped" spots are spots that, at one point or another, have existed on a Log (or been forced into a bumped status by using this tool).
  • Force OAR
    "OAR" are off-air revenue item(s) that have not yet been transitioned to an Invoice.
  • Force Trashed
    A "Trashed" is a spot or OAR that has been specifically flagged as "will not air/invoice" by a User.
  • Force Invoiced
    It is possible (and necessary under some very specific circumstances) to "bypass" the regular process of scheduling on a log, airing, reconciling and directly place a spot on an Invoice.

These various tools are visible depending on User enabled roles and the current status of an individual spot/OAR.

To "reschedule" beyond a particular Contract expiration, you will need to trash the spots on the existing Contract and create a new Contract to schedule those items into a new billing period.
