using Myriad 3.5.1.7 and AutoTrack v 3.1.46

I have created a clock, some of the entries are required and some can be dropped, the clock selects various entries using rules, categories and styles, these can be of varying length, these I would like to be kept and not allow autotrack/myriad to drop the but instead drop other entries so as to size the clock time to the hour.

Any help appreciated as I am loosing my hair.

In the clock there is a coloumn that says droppable etc...  I believe it is set here so your selected item is not dropped.

We have the basic free version of autotrack that came with myriad, I can not select columns, the columns I have are item type, info, category, description & E, E can be switched red/green, i am thinking this is like traffic lights, red ~ can't be dropped and green can be dropped, not 100% sure

thanks

The red / green dots in the Autotrack track clocks set the 'stop at end' or 'continue' at end mode in the log if you are scheduling a 'live assist' hour.

I can remember in the past seeing an option to set an item as non-droppable in Autotrack - but not something I've ever used, so can't recall if I saw this in Autotrack v2, or v3 (Standard or Pro).

(By the way "NAR" if you are who I think you are then I'm not ignoring you - you called while I was up to my neck in stuff!)

Yup it is me Phil, no problem, getting to know myriad and autotrack, I have been looking for a droppable switch so assume it is in the pro version and not in the standard.

A quick look at a Autotrack v3 Standard installation this morning reveals that the set non-dropable option appears to be a 'pro' feature.

Of course Myriad will only drop 'songs' not 'links' - so if you've things that are essential to not be dropped you could schedule them as links, but this would get very confusing very quickly.
