Issue Themes


You may wish to have a special theme (or more than one) for a particular issue. Examples might include "Christmas", "Weddings" or "Education".

Setting up themes in MagManager helps you to plan. It also helps with your renewals, as MagManager can identify your clients who booked last time you ran the same theme.

1. Setting up issue themes

Go to Settings > Under Publications & Bookings > Select Issue Themes.

Click the green "Add Theme" button to create a new theme > Add the details of your theme > Click Save.


2. Assigning a theme to an issue

The themes are added to each issue of the publication.

Go to Settings > Under Publications & Bookings > Select Publications > Select one of your publications.

Click the edit icon > Click the Themes box and select one or more of the themes from the list (the themes need to be set up first in order for them to be listed in the Themes box - see above) > Click the save icon.

TIP: You could search for all December issues and set all of them, past and future, with the issue theme "Christmas". This will help with your Christmas renewals.


3. Using issue themes in renewals

You can search for renewal bookings based on the issue theme.

On the Renewals screen, when you have a list of potential renewals, put "themed" in the search bar. This will locate renewals which are "Booked in Previous Themed issue, NOT in this issue"

NOTE: You can only search for renewals by issue theme if the issue theme has been used before now. 


4. Adding a theme to a booking

You can add details of the theme to a booking.  To do that choose a theme from the dropdown box when adding a new booking.

Note: the them dropdown box will only appear if a theme has been assigned to the issue you are booking.

5. Including a theme on the booking confirmation

The booking confirmation email automatically includes details of the theme along side the advert size booked.
