v2 track search

Post by Rudolf » Tue Apr 23, 2019 9:50 pm

Hi, I would like to set some direct messages with some filters like: Tracks search, specific genre, specific date.
I found this option in the send messages tab: "v2 track search"
How do you use this option?

Thanks

It will take a CSV of the inputs you enter into the dedicated control.


search, genre, date, length

so:
a,house,last_day

Note, the specification for date, MUST be correct, from the top of my head they are

last_hour
last_day
last_week
last_month

default is all time (empty)

As always, test it with a sample action 1-2 items, just incase :)

Sure!
if i use 2 accounts to do this action, there's a way to hit a profile only one time and avoid to message the same person two times with 2 of my accounts?

To not process duplicate items across multiple accounts, you have multiple options.

1) SHARED ACTIONS.
When you run a SHARED ACTION, the "already processed" lists for each account in the shared action is used to ensure, no item is processed if any of the accounts in the shared action have already processed the item. Additionally, the items that are processed in the shared action are recorded by all accounts and not processed by any account (in the shared action) in the future (even if an account is running a single account action)


2) Manual MERGE PROCESSED ITEMS.
On the action tabs (eg follow tab) you can select multiple accounts and select MERGE PROCESSED ITEMS. This will run a function to merge the processed items lists of all selected accounts at that point in time. Meaning no item processed by any account in the merge *already* will be processed again. This is a one-off merge, meaning the processed lists will diverge as you run more separate actions in future. Please note, if you perform this on the follow tab, only the followed processed items are merged.

3) Global processed logs - (most of the time people want this option)
Again, on the action tabs (eg follow tab) select your accounts, right click GLOBAL PROCESSED LOGS > ADD
What this does is sync all select accounts togeth their processed lists. This means the synced accounts will never process duplicate items regardless of what type of actions is used (shared / single). The difference between (2) "manual merge" is that this is a permanent sync, there will never be any duplication. Again this only applies to the action tab applied to (so only follow items if performed on the follow tab, only like items if performed on like tab)

Thanks, i understood this functionality but this only applies to some of the action tab.
On the private messages tab there isn't the "share action" option.

What i need is:

✔ Search and follow (throught "v2 track search")
✖ Play and favourite 2 user song
✔ Send a private messages to the user
✖ Share these actions with all accounts used for this action(to avoid to message the same person two times)

What are the easiest way to achieve this?

Because on the private messages tab, there isn't the box "favourite track" as in the other tabs.
On that tab i can only follow th user but not play and favourite the track.

DM actions are shared by default

No easy way at this time. You'd need to scrape your search to a file, then create a couple of actions from that file to acheieve it all
