Format of Syndication/Manually Played Logs

If you are playing songs that were not included in automation logs, you will need to upload a log with a list of these songs. The format for that log is as follows:

MM/DD/YYYY|HH:MM:ss|syndicator|artist|title
MM/DD/YYYY|HH:MM:ss|syndicator|artist|title
MM/DD/YYYY|HH:MM:ss|syndicator|artist|title

  • One song per line
  • Please make sure the date is in MM/DD/YYYY format and the time is in HH:MM:SS format (24 hour time)
  • 'syndicator' can be replaced with anything that helps you remember where it was played from, such as the name of a syndicated program, the name of a CD it came from, etc.
  • No blank lines
  • No quotation marks in the text

Example: 09/01/2013|22:47:48|The Fun Syndicated Show|The Rolling Stones|Satisfaction

If there are any issues with the log formatting it will tell you which rows to fix at the top of the screen. Please fix the log and reupload the file. Once uploaded you will get a message that it was successful.
