5.5.30, 16th Oct 2017

We've been updating some back-end code in this release to improve some processes like copying folders between projects and using the AutoCode button.



Broadcast Traffic Manager 11.8, 26th Sep 2017

This release is all about one thing - a new way of viewing your incoming ads. We've now made it possible for superhub/hub users to create a new type of clock-level tab. In this new type of tab, if an ad has been sent to multiple destinations, at different times in different orders, you will see all of those destinations grouped together with the clock.

Furthermore, upon clicking on a clock, you will see all of the destinations that ad has ever been sent to, within your hub or superhub, and the current status of those orders.
