Added easy human paper checker corrections to PCAB‘s Product Info—number, area, and advertising percentage—via an Item Info > Note “Paginated” checkbox for items that PCAB incorrectly thinks were unpaginated (perhaps because a system feed wasn‘t working, an item was paginated in a non-standard way, a child ad didn‘t have any text for PCAB to “read,” etc.).
Automatically added recent/upcoming undummied (classified-only, like Lee‘s Thrifty Nickels) products to Products list, as specified by new Publication > Undummied weekday checkboxes, addressing an issue where paper checkers often forgot to check some undummied products.
Computed advertising percentage better for zoned products, and for publications with a different number of classified, legals, or obits columns than retail.
Added optional Administrators, to which various functionality is restricted.
Added Item Info > Group (to further help manually locate an item) and Instructions (which often contains placement directives, that if not followed, might result in a make-good). This info is supplied only in SCS Extended Product XML Dummied Geometry files, not OUTEXT.
Added “@” Discrepancy—“Check Instructions for possible special placement.”
Fixed incorrect dummied page numbers, and resulting incorrect “G” Discrepancies, for items from Merged (typically Sundays) SCS Extended Product XML Dummied Geometry files.
Used “displayadv_columns” (order entry columns) if defined, instead of “columns” (dummying columns), in SCS Extended Product XML Dummied Geometry files, and converted column measurements therein to such.
Fixed issue where special characters like curly quotes, long dash, etc. in GAM Advertiser, Creative, and Line Item names showed incorrectly.
Added “%f” (Dummied Geometry File Base (without extension) Name) and “%F” (Dummied Geometry File Name) File Naming Convention Placeholders.
Fixed mismatched Note for items with a 16-character ID.
Added Products list > “Google Ad Manager API Info” command.
