Multi-track campaigns are great if you are running a series of related marketing campaigns and want all your data in one place - for example, an album campaign with single campaigns being pushed ahead of general release.
Multi-track campaigns have some features that are different from standard campaigns, so let's run through these now.
At the very top of multi-track campaigns is a drop-down list containing all the tracks currently available, along with the main campaign.
Click the list in the header bar to expand it, then choose a track campaign to view track-specific data such as radio/TV airplay or music streams/downloads.
Adding a New Track
Got a new track you want to add to your campaign? No problem - just click "+ Add New Track" at the bottom of the track list and fill out all the details.
Add/Update your Impact Date
Click the date box next to a track in the track list to add or update the impact date.
Set a Focus Track
Click the padlock icon next to a track in the track list to set it as the Focus Track for your campaign.
This will make your chosen track track the default one selected each time you access your campaign, head to a different dashboard or add information.
Only Campaign Managers can set the Focus Track for a campaign.
Adding & Connecting Data for Tracks
You will be asked to select the track you want to add data for when you are adding track-specific information like radio playlists or TV promo.
YouTube, VEVO and Soundcloud
If you want to connect up track-specific data from social streaming platforms, all you need to do is pick the track from the drop-down track list before choosing the media you want to connect up.
Taking YouTube as an example, first head to the YouTube tab of the Sales, Streams and Charts dashboard.
Next, choose the track you want to set the video for - you don't need to lock it as your Focus Track to do this.
Finally, choose the video you want to connect for this track from the YouTube Videos drop-down list.
