More planning options for advertising

Post by Steve FamilyRadio »

Dear Bernd,

would it be possible to add more planning options in the advert part of ProppFrexx.

More planning options where we can add "male/female, which voice was used, branch".
We notice that with the current options - 2 many advertisments of the same type of branch (stores, garage, services) is played in the same commercial slot. Also it would be nice to be able to say wich voice was used, or male/female so that not the same voices are planned after eachother in a slot.

Thanks for doing a good job already with ProppFrexx.

Currently there is ‘only’ the field “Key” being used to separate campaigns. Ie. two campaigns with the same Key value should not be played directly after each other.
Adding more fields is currently not planning, as I don’t really see the immediate benefi?
What should be the separation rules?
You normally only have a few adverts in one block, eg. around 10.
In addition you might add whatever value into the key, this might contain the branch and the voice...

So far, it seems, if you leave the "Key" blank, it thinks, all blanks are the same key. I use it for writing the name of the voiceover artist, but if there are multiple unknown voices, they are separated as well. Sometimes it seems to interfere with the advert priority settings.

As already written in the info (press the ? icon at the top right of each dialog), the Priority can not always be guaranteed, in cased the Key overrules that.
So both are and can only do a best effort.
Frist Prio. is evaluated and after the Key needs to be shuffled to separate the entries.
