- When you launch SongSorter, the last 90-days of raw data is loaded into memory,
making calculations and data crunching almost 1,000X faster (no hard-drive access!)
- All SongSorter data tables can be sent to PDF, HTML, Excel, Word or Text with one-click!
- You can load fresh data into SongSorter as often as you like --- every day if you want ---
by simply clicking the "Download" icon
- Every field and bit of data you see on the screen is totally configurable and customizable
- The SongSorter Compatibility matrix creates a "Euclidean Distance" data table; comparing each
Song's Positive/Dislike/Burn and Favorite partisans against all other songs'. For a test with 30 songs
and 100 in-tab respondents, that is over 8-million datapoints, all calculated in less than 1-minute! (OK, this
was a rather lengthy Fun Fact, but wasn't it worth it?)
- SongSorter gives you full and total access to all your callout data - raw song scores and
respondent names and phone numbers (is your head ready to explode yet?)
- With SongSorter, you can look at one of those cool "Real Time" wavey graph things, that lets you listen to the
hook, and see how respondents scored each song in real-time.
*** The Trend Graph (at bottom of Song Detail window) is now working, with
any of the variables you've selected to display. Also re-sized the Song Detail screen to 1024 by 768 resolution,
for your viewing pleasure.
*** This upgrade made a slight change to the way the
Respondent records are stored.
*** Fixed Arrow droplist order issue. Also, you can now select "BDS"
as one of the Arrow options (the directional arrow indicates whether BDS detections are trending
up/down, or flat.)
*** Resolved issue
for demo changes; it now properly compiles new demo breaks
and overall/trend totals with the "old" demo
breaks. Also maintenance release; all new compile of all
Run Time Library DLL's, and added "Renew License"
screen, allowing you to update your user license during
the 10-day drop-dead warning period.
*** In the SongBrowse
screen, songs that had "0.0" as a score (for
Burn, Dislike, Fave, etc.) would not be displayed, if
this was the sort order you were using (they would magically
"re-appear" when you selected a different sort
*** Now have the
SongBrowse screen utilizing the Red/Green/Yellow parameters
you have set in Browse Colors for the Positive, Familiar,
Burn and Dislike attributes.
***- When creating
a Job with "Completes Only" checked, SongSorter
would skip Respondents that were anything other than "Complete/X";
now it merely skips Respondents that are "Take Test/X"
(It will now include "Terminates", "CallBacks",
etc, as long as they have scores). Also: changed dates
on Last Completed Cycle and Last
Cycle to display as European, if Windows is configured
that way. Also, new Bell Curve settings for Browse Colors
is no longer automatically created after you run a new
Job. This allows you to set/change the Browse Color settings
(for Positive, Burn, Dislike and Familiarity), and not
have them overwritten the next time you create a Job.
Note: If you want to create a new Bell Curve
set of values for a new job, you will have to go to the
Settings / Browse Colors tab, and click the "Bell
Curve" button manually. If this becomes too much
of a pain for some users, we could probably add a setting
to do this automatically (or not do it).
*** Fixed multi-tier
Quota importing (previously was only importing the first
Quota tier), as well as Report Profiles for Tier 1, Tier
2, etc. Also have enabled the Song-to-Song Compatibility
create / display functionality... give us your feedback
on this exciting, new way to visualize how your songs
*** Fixed C-File
rebuild staying open when starting program. Also have
90% of the new stuff done for Song-to-Song Compatibility
--- matrixing each song in your test against every other
song, and displaying how close each song is to each other,
based on Positive Acceptance, Favorite, Burn and Dislike.
The "Euclidean Distance" between
songs will help you know which songs go together well,
and those that don't. Trying to build Cume... or TSL..?
Now you can design your very own "train-wreck"
song-to-song seques, just like the Jack format!! Check
New SkipCume and SkipPreference options on Perceptual
Questions in ComQuest.
*** - Added Report
Profile support (Add / Change / Delete); under the "Utilities"
menu. Also fixed non-working Delete and Close buttons
on Browse Jobs window.
*** - Fixed skipping
songs that were numbered "99XX". These were
previously-reserved numbers for interactive questions,
but can now be used by SongSorter as well. Also fixed
the missing Perceptual Files error when trying to import
SongSorter files that were created in pre-version 4.0
*** - Fixed the "Invalid
Record Declaration" for Quotas & QuotaDefaults
when opening program. Also stream-lined the Download/Import
in the case of new/startup databases, where there is no
data existing already.
*** - Fixed the "Duplicate
Key Error" when importing Perceptual results. Also,
resolved problem with selecting/displaying previously-created
job (i.e., it now works!)
*** - New one-click
"Download" - no more start/end dates or importing
after downloading; all the freshest data is automatically
downloaded each time you hit our server!
*** - Integrated real-time
data download / importing via NetQuest Connect component.
Gives you true 24/7 data access, via a live Internet connection.
Fixed Cycle data import, so it stays "synched"
with Call Center at all times. Nag screen now displays
after importing fresh data, reminding you to create a
*** - Added "Category Field"
to Song Library -
||AND Editable Song Library
Browse with options to view only the most-recently
tested songs, and/or those that currently have a Category
designation. This field (Category) is also now available
in the main SongBrowse screen and in reports! Sort
and filter using category.
*** - Added Demo Break
Positive fields to Song Browse; fixed demo break calculate
error in song-by-song screen.
*** - Finished work
on song-by-song Matrix. Now up to 8 user-defined variables
are tracked horizontally.
*** - Fixed Browse
Column width defaults. View Wizard now saves column widths
once you adjust them (click "Modify View", then
"Save" and overwrite existing view to Save.)
Split the program Settings into two sections;
||Quotas / Defaults
|Added the "Last
Cycle" and "Last
Complete Cycle" date-ranges to
the Create Job Wizard (on the
This helps to ensure you select the correct/valid
date range when creating a Job.
||Added colorized cells to the main Song
Browse screen. Currently, Mean, Total Familiarity,
Positive, Favorite, Burn, Dislike, Hate, So-So and
Potential all get color-coded (Green, White, Yellow,
Red) depending on which quartile each song scored
in for that particular attribute.
|I can add more fields to
the colorization process, once I see if anyone actually
uses this and requests that they be added.
*** - Added Global
Median values for the following attributes: Cume Stations
1-3 Favorite, Positive and Potential, and P1 (Station1
-3) for Favorite, Positive and Potential. These values
are calculated on-the-fly for whatever dataset you're
viewing, and can be used to create a dynamic Query which
compares song scores to one or more of the Global Median
Import file path/name field will now handle
lengths of 255-characters.
Added 5-week trending variables to Browse
for Mean: TW, LW, 2W, 3W, 4W, as well as MeanAverage,
which calculates the Average of all (available) Mean scores
for each song for (up to) the last 5-weeks.
When importing new data (from a SongSorter
file), the data is now also added to the In-Memory data
(previously you would have to exit out of the program,
so the new data could be loaded In-Memory the next time
you go into the program).
Fixed the "Bind" data error that
resulted when you would last look at a Saved Query that
used one of the new Global Median values.
Fixed the BDS/SoundScan Browse, so
you can now click on the header you wish to use to sort
