AdMAX 11.16 (November 2018)
AdMAX XML Interface
Added offsets for Layout Section and Group requests.
Now writes the Layout XML out with the DATE/TIME appended to the end of the file name.
Match paper and edition to product based on effective date.
If an ad is a standby ad and it hasn't run, then Ad Posting stop processing and report an error condition that will need to be resolved before ad posting can continue.
The options to resolve this issue are:
- Delete the insertion from the ad.
- Fill in the placed page information on the Insertion.
- Mark the insertion as a production kill.
Options 2 and 3 will allow the ad to post. Option 1 removes the ad, and it is ignored by the ad posting process.
Ad Track Interface
Modified the module to specifiy it is creating the XML for track.
Custom Ad Report
Added the option to select by credit code.
Match paper and edition from Layout to AdMAX product id taking into consideration the publishing date.
Elimited an attempt to convert a pdf to a pdf. If the original file is a pdf, it will be copied instead of converted.
Extra Form Printing
Added the Ad Total Cost to the fields that can be used in the formatting of forms (ie affidavits).
Changed the summary report so that it now sorts by product then delivery method with a breakdown by section and page of how many forms are needed for each of those pages. This can be useful in determining how many papers needs to be set aside for tearsheets.
General Ledger Report
When selecting the GL TOTAL REPORT option and also providing a general ledger account number, all GL accounts associated with transactions that hit the specified GL account will appear.
For example, if the A/R account is selected, then not only will the A/R account appear in the total report, but show would the cash account and the sales accounts that offset those A/R account entries.
When duplicating groups, only products that can contain groups will be displayed in the list.
Image Conversion Script
Modified to no longer create new version of images, but instead replace the existing image.
Sort level 12 on the invoice notice record can now be used to change when ads are invoiced for customers who get that invoice to on last appearance. This overrides any default options for when an ad would be invoiced.
Modified to also include the customer account number on the label.
Modified to address schema issues identified during go live.
Modified the export to give the option to combine both the classified display and classified line ads into one folder.
Fixed the sorting of products and pre-defined buys so that they both use the priority for order entry. The priority indicates the sort order 1 being first and 9999 being last.
Getting predefined buys to work with ad versions.
Updated version control processing so that a new version is not automatically created when a new product is added to the order. A new version will only be created if the units of measure from the existing version are not compatible with the unit of measure of the new products.
Monster data entry screen was modified to check for required fields.
Increased the size of the value that can be entered in the field tag to 500 characters.
Modified the Ad Version list to use more of the available screen space instead of limiting it to just a few lines.
Added Fielded Data as an option under the Ad pull down menu. With this option it is possible to link specific fielded data to ads based on the ad category on the order.
Fixed conflict checking for prebuys so that the same product can be used multiple times.
Added the Combo Ad Id option under the Ad Pull down so that we can set an id for ads sold in comboination that we may want to group later.
Changed how traits are handled. When displaying the list of insertions there are now buttons to edit the existing trait, set the trait on the insertion to one that exists, and to create a new trait. (Edit Trait), (Set Trait) and (New Trait).
You can select multiple insertions for the set trait and new trait option. All insertions selected will be set to the trait being selected or created.
Changed the size of the wide ad copy preview window to be a fixed size that will display in the same space in the order entry window regardless of the screen resolution of the workstation being used.
Changed the Show Style preview so that it will fit better in the window on the left side of the view screen.
Eliminated a look up for the page format on package records when duplicating an existing ad as the package record doesn't have a page format. Page formats are associated with product.
Payment and Adjustment Posting
Modified the non approved credit card message to include the sequence number of the transaction in the batch that is unapproved.
Predefined Buy Maintenance
Added a new scheduling type of MATCH. This works exactly like NONE except that when manual scheduling is selected the date with the MATCH will get the same number of buys and start date as the MANUAL product, as opposed to NONE which will only match the start date and not the number of buys.
Preprint Zone Maintenance
Fixed the next field logic so that it flows through all of the fields.
Added Sunday quantity to the database.
Modified the maintenance list so that it now shows both the daily and Sunday quantities.
Report Control File
Added run sheet to the report control listing under the Production reporting tab.
Scheduled Preprints Report
Added a new report under the Advertising reporting tab called Scheduled Preprints. This report shows a summary list of preprints with zone and truck information on a landscape page format.
Standard Internet Export
Added two new fields to the export options
Fielded Data - This field will contain a name=value pairing of all of the fielded data tags that are on the ad.
Multiple Logo Name - This will add a field to the report for each of the logos used in the classified line ad. It will also convert each of those logos to a jpg and place them in the destination folder. The logo will have the same name as the eps (except for the extension).
Modified to include the circ zones and truck routes
Transaction Type Maintenance
Added flags to allow AdMAX to override how billing space is calculated for Images that come from the CAS/COE web portal.
- Include depth for COE Logos
- Include depth for COE Attention Getters
The logos option is used for anything that is not an attention getter.
