ETERE AIRSALES SCHEDULING

13 June 2019

Etere Airsales's Weekly Schedule application empowers broadcasters with complete flexibility of manually creating schedules via either pre-configured or new blocks through a freestyle grid format with a simple drag and drop function.

Etere Airsales is an integrated solution for traffic, accounting, scheduling, and all sales management-related operations. It is entirely scalable to your business needs: from the smallest single-station setup to the largest corporation.

Etere offers a dedicated module for planning commercial activity and long-term scheduling. This versatile and efficient commercial scheduling tool ensures that commercial orders are generated and managed professionally and efficiently, thus maximizing productivity and broadcast planning.

Key Features
■ Maximizes productivity and air time planning
■ User-friendly interface with a drag-and-drop feature

Etere Airsales can differentiate block instances within a specific day according to their position:
■ Parent block: The first inserted block instance within a day. Parent blocks feature the same data (and ID) as the source block
■ Child block: All instances additionally inserted within a day. Child blocks feature the same data of the source block but with a different progressive ID (based on the main block's ID)
■ All blocks present in the Blocks list count with a unique ID for easy identification across all the daily schedules on which they feature
■ Easy replacement of a source block or a group of consecutive blocks
■ In case the operator decides to replace a block featured at different times on the same day, it will be necessary to specify its ID to ensure a precise and correct replacement
■ Allows the removal of blocks from a specified period (i.e., blocks with the same ID)
■ The "Paste" wizard allows copying a portion of the structure (i.e., all selected blocks) to a different period, maintaining their arranged position and times.

■ Create custom grids for a guided and accurate management of commercial schedules
■ Drag-and-drop features for spots scheduling
■ Flexible, customizable scheduling grid to guide filling procedures
■ Capability of moving blocks with and without events
■ Target audience and income on every gridline
■ Multichannel grid including copy and link across channels
■ Scheduling rules for automatic campaigns planning
