Ready-to-Load Filter/Indicator - Usage Consolidation

Ready-to-Load Filter/Indicator

Platforms that are Ready-to-Load are those that (likely) have usage data available for loading.  There is no way for us to know for sure whether new COUNTER reports have been published on the Platform, but this filter makes its best guess using the following logic: 

  • Limits Platforms shown to those that have at least one enabled report (i.e. report that is checked on Reports to Load tab in Platform Management) that was not successfully loaded for last month (where last month is defined as the month prior to the most recent month for which "Day of Month to Harvest Usage" is today or passed).
    • Example: Day of Month to Harvest Usage is 5
      • If today is July 5, 2015, “last month” is June 2015.  The Platform will display as “Ready to Load” if at least one of the enabled reports does not contain data for June 2015.
      • If today is July 4 2015, “last month” is May 2015.  The Platform will display as “Ready to Load” if at least one of the enabled reports does not contain data for May 2015.
  • Checking the Show Only Ready-to-Load Platforms checkbox above the Platform list on the Load COUNTER Files page will limit the Platforms displaying in the menu to only those that are ready to load
