AdMAX 11.12 (September 30, 2017)
AdMAX to Layout Integration
Added two new options to AdMAX Parameters
- Using Layout XML - Set this to Y if you want to send ads to Layout-8000 as soon as the ad is saved in AdMAX.
- XML Location - If you are sending XML to layout, then specify the folder where the xml files will be placed.
Only retail or classified display ads that are entered for products that are flagged to appear in the retail export list will be sent to Layout-8000.
Ads in a hold queue will be sent to Layout-8000, but they will be flagged as a kill to avoid having them run in the paper. Once the ad is released from the hold queue, the ad will be resent as a running ad.
When XML is sent to Layout-8000 for an ad, a log entry is added to the ad audit trail.
Added the option to duplicate an existing country by pressing the <F9> key. This will copy the formatting for the phone number and postal code to the new record.
Custom Ad List Report
Mode it possible to display both the total cost and the total cost without taxes on the report at the same time.
Descriptive Size Maintenance
Modified descriptive sizes so that we can now specify if the double truck and gutter flags should be set when the descriptive size is loaded.
Don't report an ad as being not dumped if we routed it Layout-8000 as XML instead of a cardex.
When running discrepancy processing all products will be checked by default. You will click on a product to turn it off.
The reports will no longer be displayed as they are generated. A list will be displayed at the end of all reports generated.
If the Outext file is missing or incorrect and you are not manually ignoring discrepancies, then a popup will not be displayed showing the error. The issue with the outext will now be included in the discrepancy report.
Discrepancy processing has been modified so that by default it automatically ignores all discrepancies and will only produce a report for any issues found.
For those sites wishing to maintain the older style of running discrepancy processing an option has been added to AdMAX Parameters, screen #20. Set "Require Discrepancies to be Manually Ignored" to Y to mimic the old method. Set this value to N if you do not wish to have to manually approve discrepancies.
When running discrepancy processing, you will now have the option to select the type of product (Retail, Classified or Both) This replaces the popup that used to ask you on a per product basis. Now, if you select Retail, only the retail products will be available for selection.
Insert and Preprint Report
Changed the paper sort to be by product id so that each distinct product will be shown separately.
Modified the report to include the zone information for any preprint zones attached to the ad. Add a criteria option to toggle on/off this feature.
Will automatically set the double truck and gutter flags if they are set to TRUE on the descriptive size.
Added a new AdMAX Parameter that will allow you to set a mandatory tax transaction type that must be included on all ads. This will be added even if the ad taker enters a total cost override.
When display the summary information for extra charges and discounts, ignore deleted extra charges in favor of charges that are scheduled to be used.
When changing the quantity or override amount on an extra charge or discount that has already been posted, we will now update that information on the posted record as well as generate a revenue adjustment if needed.
It is now possible to delete insertions that have been marked as run by discrepancy processing but have not yet been posted.
To do this, first the user must have the "May Delete ran but not posted ads" flag set to Yes on the second screen of user maintenance.
The insertion can only be deleted from the Insertion Information window.
- In Order Entry, click on the Ad Pull down menu.
- Select either of the two Insertions mene option (show deleted or do not show deleted).
- Highlight the insertion to delete.
- Press the <DELETE> key on the keyboard.
- You will be prompted twice to verify that you want to delete the insertion.
Write protected the Credit Card Approval Code field. To set the approval code manually, click on the Credit Card Approval Icon at the top of the payment entry screen.
Transaction Type Maintenance
Changed the Override With Manual Sequence field name to be Honor Trans Priority Level as that more closely resembles what the field does.
Setting it to Y will result in the transaction level being used from the extra charge or discount. Setting it to N will put all link charges in front of any manually enterered charges, in the order that they are linked.
