Positionless Promos

Allow promos to run in any open position within the ad unit type.

Though many promos are intended to run in an exact position in an episode (i.e. the second Mid-Roll spot), promos can also be set to run as positionless. When "No Position" is selected, a promo will insert into any open position within the selected unit type (Pre-, Mid-, or Post-Roll) wherever available.

To set up a positionless promo, start by Creating a Promo (or selecting an existing promo). 

Under the Position section, mark "No Position". 

Doing so will allow the promo to run in any open position for a designated unit type. For example, if the promo has been selected as a Mid-Roll location with no position, Megaphone will insert the promo into any open Mid-Roll spot (be it the first Mid-Roll, second Mid-Roll, etc).

In order for the ad-insertion to behave as described, be sure to have ad locations defined in order for the promo to run!
