Introduction

RadioTraffic.com converts to a specific Dial Global Storq Automation log format.

Edit

Station Configuration

To configure RadioTraffic.com to work with Dial Global Storq Automation, you will first need modify the station configuration to utilize Dial Global Storq Automation as the automation system. In the administration module, open 'Stations'. Select the station you want to configure and double click. Once the station configuration is visible, select the 'Files' tab. Set the 'Product' to Dial Global Storq Automation using the drop down selection tool. The 'Automation Log Path' is where RadioTraffic.com will export the log to, so set this to the file system folder that Dial Global Storq Automation will pull the file from. The 'Station Identifier' field allows you to specify a unique code that is utilized by the import/export mechanism that is required by the automation system. This code is a combination of the Station ID (SS) and Download ID (XX) formatted as pipe delimited code (SS|XX). The Station ID and Download ID are described further in the Dial Global Storq Automation documentation. The file name structure for the exported log will be MMDDYYXX.log; where MM is the two digit month, DD is the two digit day, YY is the two digit year and XX is what you've entered into the as the Download ID portion of the special code.

Avails/Breaks

Dial Global Storq Automation requires that every "break" contains a end of break marker (Cart # 9999). This can either be accomplished by added an automation command and placing this manually on the templates/formats after every avail (or combination of avails).

Edit

Log Reconciliation

RadioTraffic fully supports automatic log reconciliation with Dial Global Storq Automation. The file name is expected to be YYMMDDSS.XXL; where YY is the two digit year, MM the two digit month, DD is the two digit day, SS is the Station ID and XX is the Download ID. The SS and XX portion is determined based on the special code you entered entered as the Station Identifier. These files are expected to be in the Aired Log Path location. Additionally, the only "types" that we will import are 1, 2, 7, 9 AND R.
