Search Automation

Post by Latent » Wed Jun 06, 2018 6:59 pm

I have many accounts, and I want each account to run the same search. What feature do I use to get them to do that?

Everything I've tried runs the search on a single account.

check the SHARED ACTION option.

This means you create a SINGLE action for ALL selected accounts. They will "share" the results between them when processing.

so:
acc1: processes item1
acc2: processes item2
acc3: processes item3
acc1: processes item4
....

etc

Martin

This option isn't available under plays, so I tried it on Favs. As far as I can tell from the logs, it runs the search 1 time on 1 account, stores the list of search results, and then runs the favorite action on that stored list.

I am looking for each account to run the search, not relying on a scraped list from another account.

Yes. Shared action will scrape/get a list and then distribute unique items for each account to process.

So you want to use different searched/sources for each account you use?
Then you have to create them manually.

For example :

You want to like beats tagged tracks with 5 accounts then

Select 5 accounts in search and favourites
input the track tag
DO NOT CHECK SHARED ACTION :)
hit like

All of them will do the same track search in separate action.


Do you want a single action that will do action with multiple account and will scrape different things?
Can you please explain your requirements more clearly with example?

What you described in your last post is correct and works fine. I would love to be able to do the same thing with track plays.

Select 5 accounts
Each account runs the search separately
Plays the resulting searches

Is that possible?

you want each account to make the same search? And play the same results? If that is correct, you will need 5 actions, one for each account.

Or did you mean the search is made once and the results are shared between accounts?
