Line Item Creation
Users create a line item by selecting the button below the required field, which creates a sliding side panel for lightweight access.
The parameter selection panel has quite a few options. Below are just a few of the possible combinations a salesperson can select from.
Once parameters have been selected, users can save the line item, which then the system checks the parameters with an algorithm that returns a result in up to 10 minutes due to the complexity of the database.
To account for the API delay, and to mitigate this latency on the user's end, line items have a "checking" state, and users can continue to create line items while waiting.
Below is an example of what an IO might look like once it's been completed. Advertisers can create different IOs - usually their differences are between the DMA's. Not all line items, however, are available. If a line item is unavailable, it's visually separated from the available ones. Users can then hold a line item if they are ready to send it off to be signed by the advertiser.
While I'm only showing the user flow of creating a line item, this tool has many other flows, including editing existing line items, saving, deleting, etc. However, it's really only worth showing the core functionality of what covers 80% of how sales people are using its features.
