Since our last release 5.5.20 we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to improve your experience of using the platform with various bug fixes and improvements. The most notable of these include:

  • Improving the way that delivery times are reported when working across multiple timezones. We now show the time zone along with the time the order was submitted in the Order summary page.
  • Fixing the logic for tabs in Broadcast Traffic Manager ensuring that broadcasters that are part of a hub can only see their own orders and not the orders of other broadcasters in the Hub.
  • Improving the focus on Tabs in Broadcast Traffic Manager, so now when you create or edit a new tab you’ll be taken straight to it and if you delete a tab you’ll be taken to the default.

Sendplus update

Various bugs have been fixed in the most recent update of Sendplus, including:

  • The field "Time Left" no longer shows "pending" after a file is successfully uploaded to the library.
