Most people aren’t familiar with our site. But, did you know we have a pretty good wiki!?
It was recently revamped to make it easier for users to find what they’re looking for. And our developers frequently update the site whenever there are new features added.
If you can’t find something, let us know. It may be because we’ve misplaced it, or it’s too hard to find and we’ll need to fix it.
Community and Content Groups
Content Group Support
We’ve recently added a much requested feature in Super Ticker and Community: Content Group Admin. Essentially this means as a system Admin you can assign an Admin to a content group, which in turn will allow for that admin to create a series of user accounts for that specific content group. This is especially useful with Community. Along with this new feature, we’ve modified security groups to restrict what users are allowed to see.
Content Groups have also been updated across the board in anticipation for the big Community update. All modules will support content groups in the near future.
WDAY in Fresno is about to start their winter season and one of the requests they had was to have over 300 users for each of their School Districts. Hence, when there’s a snow storm and the schools are closed, the School district administrator can log onto Community and update their School Districts’ status.
After a status update, our new Community Reader will automatically update your own instance of Super Ticker, therefore, ready for broadcast.
Finally, the new update isn’t only limited to Closings, but also Events, Stories and Scores.
Query and Google
A couple weeks ago, Georg posted an article with new support for Google Login, Sheets (Scores and Closings) and Calendar. Follow the links to view our wiki page offering step by step instructions on how to utilize these new features.
In addition to Google API, standard Query templates have been added when updating Super Ticker. I’ve also added some Query samples on our wiki for you to use and test. Query is also supported in our Blade Module.
Brando BXF support
A (Protrack by Myers Info Systems) reader was recently requested. BXF is the supported format. Brando already read many other traffic file formats, but BXF is one of the industry leading formats. With this new reader, Brando finally covers almost 90% of all types of traffic data, making it compatible with virtually any broadcast master control traffic systems.
