Seller: How do I search within my inventory?

With our new Inventory Search, complex searches are quick and easy!  You can navigate to Inventory Search by hovering over Media Profiles and clicking Inventory Search.  If this option is not available in your Media Profiles menu, you may not have the necessary permissions.  Please contact your account manager if you believe you should have access to this tool.

You are also able to then filter your search further by selecting from a list of available Advertising Categories and Venues.



Searching by Availability is also an option.  Just choose a time-frame and select which Availability Types to include in your search results.  The meanings of each Availability Type are listed below.

  • Available - This is the default status and the initial status of all inventory
  • Proposed - This is the status of inventory that has been issued in a buyer created RFP or seller proposal

  • Contract Pending - This is the status of inventory that has been included in any contract issued by a buyer or seller
  • Contracted - This is the status of inventory that has been included in a buyer created contract as long as it has been approved by the seller.  It is also the status of inventory included in a seller created contract that has been marked as 'Contracted'.
  • Contracted-Preemptable - This is the status of inventory that has been marked as such through our Inventory Status tool and represents inventory that has been contracted at a low rate and can be relinquished if there is another buyer willing to pay more
  • Off Market - This is the status of inventory that has been marked as such through our Inventory Status tool and represents inventory that is currently Off Market due to reasons such as maintenance, etc.
  • Perms - This is the status of inventory that has been marked as such through our Inventory Status tool and represents inventory that is not available for a long period of time

You can also filter your results even further by selecting a client, a minimum number of impressions per cycle, a read direction or face, and even the source.


Once you have made all of your selections, click Search!

If you made Availability selections in your search, you will be taken to the Graphic View.  From here you can hover over each bar in the chart to see additional details, as well as create a booking!


Otherwise, you will be taken to the List View where (depending on your permissions) you can view your search results, as well as, Edit, Add Availability, Map, Save, Add to Proposal, Add to Package, and generate Photosheets for the resulting inventory.



Finally, you can view and update your search criteria by clicking on 'Show Search Criteria'!
