Hi Programmers - It would be great if you could add a permission to restrict deleting proof of play logs.

Thanks!

New features and suggestions / Proof of Play enhancement

I just spent an hour adding POP to the ads.  Because I don't use common channels and have 2 timelines, I had to do it on each ad on the timeline.  It would be great if you could assign a POP name to the Resource and that way each time it appears on the timeline it has the same name.  However it would be nice to have the ability to override the name on a particular ad on the timeline if needed.

Hi Programmers - If it's possible, can you extend the Content column.  There is no way to resize it and I can't see the full name of my content.  It will show the first 13 characters or so.

Thanks!
Zack

We use screenfeed as the admin suggested.  It's expensive, but some of their stuff is well worth it.

Good stuff. I was looking foward to the old functions.

I dont know about others, but i sell advertising. I get new customers, and i have several screens. The screens have different locations. I have some advertisers i cannot show at some locations, like a hotel lobby, i cannot show advertising for other hotels. I also have some adaptation for most of my screens. What i have to deal with now are about 20 different timelines, and to place an ad in the network takes about an hour.

(This may get complicated to follow but hang on to your hats boys I will try to explain it haha)
Before I started at the company I'm at there were 20 campaigns.  After I started, I got rid of them all.  I went with 1 mega campaign with 20 outputs.  In the one campaign I have 12 screen divisions.  There is the basic layout standard to all.  Then over-top of the main content window and the upper right and lower right hand boxes I have three windows layered over-top with a different name.

In the campaign timeline I have 37 channels.  Each output has it's own background assigned.  Since the three restaurants I have can not appear on each others screens I use the "override" channels as I call them.  So as the main time line is playing when it comes up to "Restaurant A" ad on "Restaurant B" screen I have an channel that is primarily blank except for that 10 seconds where a different ad needs to be played.  Then I slot in a different ad that will only appear on Restaurant B's screen.  Everyone else will see Restaurant A's ad. 

Of course when you use this method you have to use a clear graphic (10px by 10px) translucent graphic after the ad to clear off the override box.  The reason being is even though the ad is schedule to run for 10 seconds, if there is nothing on the timeline after that ad, it will keep playing forever.

It took a bit to setup (and bloody complicated to look at) but once you a rolling it saves the hours you will spend updating 20 campaigns.  The only thing you have to be aware of is when you move ads on the timeline, you also have to move the ads on the override channels or things wont block out the ads on specific screens.

I can't upload screen shots otherwise I would.  If you are interested, msg me.
