Create contests

A contest is a memo with a prize, intended for the timeline in the On Air section. A contest is created in four steps.

1
Create a memo
  • Go to Station > Memos to add a new memo. This is the same as adding regular memos.
  • Write the text for the memo. Include all necessary information for the on-air staff like how the contest should be executed and what sponsors need to be mentioned.
  • Make sure you add a tease-text to the memo. This text shows up at the top of the timeline and notifies on-air staff about the contest.
2
Attach prizes to the memo
  • Click "Add contest" to enable the option to add prizes to the memo.
  • Select a prize from the drop-down box and click "Add". You can add as many prizes as needed.

3
Add email settings
  • Prepr offers the option to send every winner an automated confirmation email.
  • Select the checkbox to enable automatic email notification.

  • Write the subject line of the email
  • Write the text of the email. You can use placeholders to include the name of the winner: {{firstName}} and {{lastName}}. For example, you can start the text with "Hi {{firstName}}".

By default, the email is sent with the default Prepr template and email account. You can customize the template and email account to match your stations' branding. Please contact your system administrator or your Prepr consultant for more information.

Schedule the memo

You have three options to schedule the memo for the on-air staff:

  1. Schedule a memo for all programs (between publish time and archived time);
  2. Schedule a memo for one or more specific programs (between publish time and archived time);
  3. Schedule a memo in selected hours (between publish time and archived time)
