One of the big benefits of VT is the ability for it to automatically schedule spots for you. When setup correctly, VT will automatically perform the lion’s share of the work when placing spots onto the logs.
To ensure you are using VT to your benefit, keep in mind the following when in Log Maintenance:
The grid in log maintenance shows all of the days of the selected month. Days with logs are colour-coded to show the current status of the log.
Green Border Indicates an active log that is in the Dynamic phase. VT will automatically schedule spots for new orders and any changed spots on existing orders for these days.
Yellow Border Indicates an active log that has been Pigeon Holed. VT will automatically schedule spots for new orders, however changes to spots on existing orders will automatically be placed on the bump list.
Red Border Indicates an Official Log. Official logs are ready to air. All new spots or changes to existing spots will be placed on the bump list.
While it’s unlikely that VT will be able to place absolutely every spot for a log day, maximising the number of Dynamic (Green) and then Pigeon Holed (yellow) log days will allow VT to do the majority of the work for you leaving the difficult decisions it can’t make to you.
