How To Pull Airchecks

There are times when an advertiser will want to hear what an ad sounds like to listeners and have evidence an ad ran. This is when you will want to pull an “aircheck”. An aircheck can provide statistics on instances of ad placement in flights and present the option to download audio of the ad as listeners will hear it. Here’s how to pull an aircheck:

Step 1: Select “Series” from the options at the top of the Inventory dashboard



Step 2: Select the desired series from the list that appears



Step 3: Select “Scheduled Flights” from the list on the left



Step 4: Scroll down the page to “Backsaw: Live Requests” and open the dropdown menu to select an episode or search to find the episode



Step 5: Set desired filter parameters from the dropdown menus, then click “Run 100x Requests”


Once the request has run, the following options are available to you:

  • Selecting "i" displays the arrangement and mp3

  • Pressing the play button allow you to listen to the segment with the ad inserted.

  • Selecting the three vertical dots to the right of the file gives you the option to download the segment with the ad inserted so the aircheck can be shared. It also gives you the option to change the playback speed when previewing the ad. 



Congratulations! You now know how to pull an aircheck in Dovetail Inventory!
