Summer has arrived! With it, we’ve given you some brand new PromoSuite functionality to enjoy with the sunshine and beaches. As always, you can call your friendly Client Relations Specialist at 212-509-1200 to ask questions and get more details!
- ADD PROMOSUITE EVENTS TO YOUR PERSONAL CALENDARS:
Want to sync your events in PromoSuite Next to an Outlook Calendar? PromoSuite now offers the ability to export your Events into an ICS file. As ICS is the universal calendar file, you can now upload events Outlook, Google, or Microsoft Exchange calendars. All that’s needed is to first open the event under Promotions > Events > Event Information > Event Info, then click the calendar icon!
- START AND STOP YOUR COPY/SCRIPT ON SPECIFIC DAYS AT SPECIFIC TIMES FOR LIVE PROGRAMMING ELEMENTS:
We can now pinpoint the exact time and date we want a Liner Copy to change. In any programming element script/copy section, click “Apply Start/End Times to Overall Flight” This allows copy groups to be set to change for specific times on specific dates to change, as opposed to the copy changing every day. Available for all Programming Elements, you can now schedule with even greater precision!
- “DEFAULT” LAYOUTS FOR YOUR FAVORITE REPORTS:
Tired of having to select your custom layout every time? Now when you run a contest winners report, you can select a specific layout to be your default, making the process that much quicker. All that’s required is to check the “Make My Default” Box when saving a custom layout.
- CREATING NEW SALES FORMS JUST GOT EASIER:
Sales forms can now be copied! Make your way to sales setup, and you will now see a button that allows you to copy forms by either content or approvers. While you’re at it, throw in a new bold and large font “Header” and/or a centered instructional “Instruction” field.
- SALES NOTIFICATIONS ARE NOW LIVE:
We can now link certain users to specific fields in a Sales Request. How you ask? We can assign users to specific fields, custom or standard. Then, whenever a form with one of those specified fields is approved, the designated users get a notification email with all the info! Share away!
- ALLOCATE YOUR SCHEDULED ITEMS STRAIGHT FROM A SALES REQUEST:
We’ve now streamlined the sales process! Sales requests forms can now include categories for all elements available to be scheduled into the Studio. As a result, any Liner or Contest created from a request automatically allocates to the category selected. Once finalized, you can go straight to the scheduling utility and push it thru to the Studio by daypart, benchmark contest name, or any category included in your scheduling clock.
- COPY YOUR MYALERTS FROM STATION TO STATION:
Got sales alerts you want to edit for all your stations? Gone are the days to which you would have to make the changes one station at a time. Copying Alerts settings is now available for all sister stations.
- SALES EMAIL HAVE A NEW EMAIL SUBJECT:
Our Sales Request Notification Emails got a subject facelift. Now when learning the details of a sales request to approve, the subject of the email will read – ” <<Submitter Name>> – <<Promotion Name>>: Ready for Review”. We wanted to give your inbox a little love.
- REQUEST NAME AND TIMELINES ARE NOW OPTIONAL IN SALES FORMS:
For the remote request, it didn’t quite make sense to have a request timeline, as it often is only one date! We’ve made request timeline optional, so only one date is needed to submit a sales request. Additionally, we created an auto-generated name for requests if we wish to delete the custom name. The form name will then default to <<Advertiser>> – <<Date Submitted>>. If no advertiser is selected? It becomes <<Submitting AE’s Name>> – <<Date Submitted>>
Don’t forget, PromoSuite provides unlimited phone training and unlimited customer support. If you have any questions about these new features or any other features, don’t hesitate to call us at 212-509-1200.
