On activating the error buttons, all errors are displayed in the broadcast plan depending on the coloration in the options. You can display all or certain errors depending on the activation of the buttons.
Define a red coloration for displaying the errors in the color options (Admin > Options > Color). After activating the error buttons these errors will then be displayed in red in the broadcast plan.
The definition of rules in the ContentExplorer parameters is a precondition for checking license errors, parental rating errors etc. (e.g. FSK18: Free from 23.00 PM to 06.00 AM and activated for the respective channel).
Events in the broadcast schedule can be checked for the following errors:
Saves the current program plan. Please make sure to save your broadcasting plan regularly.
Planner message on saving the plan Do you want to save your changes?: This message appears whenever there are unsaved changes in the background of the broadcast plan. Here it makes sense to firstly call the function Track changes before saving the plan. This message can be activated/deactivated in the options of the Planner (Admin > Options > Broadcast date > Flag Apply modification log automatically).
|Parental rating errors|
It makes sense to activate this error-check only for channels that employ a parental rating. The rules for employing parental ratings need to be defined in the parameters of the ContentExplorer for each channel. A scheduled event receives the status Error (parental rating usage), if the event was rated with a grade and was not scheduled correctly regarding its rating. For example:
Trailer version with a parental rating of FSK 18 scheduled at 11.00 AM. Based on the FSK rules defined in the CE settings this event can be scheduled not earlier than 23.00 PM.
To resolve this error please reschedule this trailer version or change the FSK rating of the event, if possible.
|Trailer usage errors|
This error will also be indicated in the column Status of the Planner. Usually trailer versions are scheduled by drag and drop out of the tab Current in the data bar of the Planner.

A trailer usage error is effected when:

|Design element usage errors|
On an activated error check all design elements (signations, commercial separator, count-down boards, jingles) are displayed as errors in the column Status which have no valid period of usage or no usage period at all. To resolve the error please open the dialog Edit design element (right mouse-click on Edit program) and check the periods of usage in the respective tab regarding channel and time. If necessary, change the data or replace the design element by another. Adjacent it is necessary to reload the periods of usage (2.3 Tab Broadcast Schedule).
It makes sense to activate this error-check only for channels which license their programs i. e. that employ a license administration. In this case a license error is shown for a program or series version if either the scheduled version has no license at all or if the license time does not include the current channel and broadcast day.
