Merge Global Logs

Post by jhonD »

Hi, I've been searching the forum but could not find the answer so here is the question.

I need to merge global logs of accounts so they do not follow same users.
I select accounts in follow tab
right click and go to Global Shared Processed Logs - Append Global Logs

It opens up an input box to input names of global logs - where do I get those names? And how to input them for all accounts that I have?

I've tried going to global logs - view logs - but it's an empty input box.

Thank you!

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)

I've already found the above solution using search on forum. And I've chosen step 3). So I'm having trouble right clicking and merging logs. Here is why:

right click GLOBAL PROCESSED LOGS > ADD

And after that what are the names to input? Where do I get them? Does it refer to:
\AppData\Roaming\rootjazz\Soundcloud Manager\logs
What file do I choose from here?
log.XXXXXXXXX.globallog.log <- this one?

Image

This is the window I'm talking about. I have no idea what names is it asking me to input there.
Or I'm right-clicking somewhere else?

Also what is a shared action and how to run it? Option 1)
The closest resemblance that I found is (in Follow tab) a tick box that said: Share Follows Over All Selected Accounts - Is that it? By the name of it - I thought that it means that all selected accounts will also follow the being followed account.

If you are using GLOBAL LOGs there is no merging to do. I think you are confused in what it does.

Global logs ties those accounts together moving forward.
So select your accounts, give them a global log name, you can put anything you want, this is just a tag that allows you to add accounts to this global log in future. there is no need to search through the logs directory

Also what is a shared action and how to run it? Option 1)

A shared action, just means an action will use multiple accounts rather than 1.
Single account action:
search finds 100 results, acc_1 processes that 100

SHARED action, you select 10 accounts
search finds 100 results, those 10 accounts "share" those 100 results, so each account processes 10 items.

That's it! Sorry it wasn't clearer.

The idea of using a tag is as you add accounts you can add them to that global log should you wish, or remove accounts should you wish to test not being in the global tag. It allows the global log to exist external to the accounts
