Forecasting for advertising inventory in Dovetail Inventory is built around episode drafts set up within a series in Publish. Knowing when a series will drop episodes is essential for ensuring an accurate prediction of advertising inventory, which in turn determines sponsorship revenue.
Without leaving the Inventory application, you can easily check to see if a series has set up episode drafts in Dovetail Podcasts. It is all about knowing where to go!
Navigate to the Series tab from the hamburger menu in the top left corner of the screen.
Select the Series for which you’d like to see future episode drops
Then, select the Episode tab from the left-hand side of the screen, and you’re there!
If nothing is displaying in the Episodes Tab for a series, then the producer will need to be notified that they need to create episode drafts in Dovetail Podcasts.
