Adding new items to your station inventory to use as fill material in stop sets when your station doesn’t have paid spots available for play is a pretty simple and straightforward process.  To do so, just follow the steps below:

1.     Access your Client Console account by going to, clicking the Cleint Login link and then choosing the Campaign Manager link.
2.     Once logged in, click the INJECTOR MANAGER link at the top of the screen
3.     If you have more than one station listed under your account, choose the specific station in question from the drop down list
4.     Once you are in the Station Inventory screen (you’ll see individual items listed line-by-line down the page) click the NEW COMPONENT button in the upper left hand corner of the screen
5.     Enter the spot’s description or name into the spot description field
6.     Select the proper station from the drop down list (the current station will be defaulted)
7.     Leave the item set to the Enable family in the About Ad Families selection box.  The Enable Family is the one used for normal ad cover fill you can elect to CTL+Click to add this item to other Families as well if needed, but if you want to have this item play as cover in stop sets, you must have the ENABLE family selected.  NOTE: If the item is ONLY supposed to play during a Blakout or Long Form Cover, make sure that the ENABLE Family IS NOT selected and that the item is added to the Special Stream Down Notification Family.
8.     Choose the needed SPOT CATEGORY from the drop down list.  NOTE: Make sure to only add items to categories that are selected in the station Tempalte.
9.     Leave the Industry Type undefined
10.     Set the Priority to Medium
11.     Set the Start Date and End Date
12.     Choose to Upload the spot now or have Production do it later…for our purposes here we are going to Upload now
13.     Click Next
14.     Click the CLICK HERE TO UPLOAD CREATIVE link
15.     From the pop-up box, click Browse to find the mp3 file on your local computer and double click it to select it, then click UPLOAD
16.     Once the file uploads you will be taken to the Scheduling screen
17.     Click the OPEN SCHEDULING link – this is recommended since fill material should most likely be available for play anytime, 24 hours a day, that Paid Spots are unavailable for play
18.     From the Open scheduling screen click the button the corresponds to the Schedule you want to pick.  Most user select the Mon-Sun 12a-12p button
19.     Once the screen refreshes, scroll to the bottom of the page and click FINISHED

This process gives you quick step-by-step instructions on how to add a new item to inventory.  If you need more specific instructions on each of the various settings, make sure to search the Knowledgebase for articles relating the steps in question.  You can also consult the Injector Manager User Guide available through the User Manuals link at the top of the page.  

Your new item will show-up in inventory as soon as the full spot finishes processing and uploading to all of the Ando Media servers.
