Tips & Updates

This page is a database of tips on how to get the most out of the whole Connect site. You probably started here in all the pages under the "Connect" tab - but there's so much more. This page has lots of ways you can explore and start using all the features Connect has to offer.

Store Audio and Media Files Inside Connect

Now you can store media files (spec spots, other audio, videos etc.) and documents (proposals, letters, rate cards, agreements, schedules etc.) inside your Connect account. Not only that - you can store documents and media for each of your contacts separately - and keep those files connected to those clients and contacts.

We've just added a new "Documents and Media" feature to the Client Center and to the Manage Your Account sections of your Connect account. Now, when you select any of your contacts and go to that contact's page inside Connect, click on the "Documents and Media" tab and upload any files you want. They'll be stored inside Connect and stay linked to that Contact.

Why do this? Well, now you can keep all your spec spots and other files and documents for clients all in one place - right with that contact's information. And, because Connect is an online system, when you access your account from any computer anywhere - those files and documents will be right there. You can even access a client's spec spots and play them right from the client's computer in his office!

When you're at home, now all your important docs and even your production can be right there at home with you, without you having to burn copies onto CD or remember to do backups onto a memory stick.

Plus - if you have an iPhone, you can access a client's files right from your phone. So you can upload a spec spot into that contact's page in Connect from your desktop computer at the station, and play it to the client from your iPhone in his office!

We've also added some general storage space in the Manage Your Account section. You can use this to store general documents you always want access to, like rate cards, scripts, letters, agreements etc. Check out the Documents and Media" tab now!
