Setting up a new publication

NOTE: During your 30 day trial of MagManager, you can add your first publication when prompted by clicking on the button at the very top of the screen.

Adding a new publication

On the Settings Page (click on the cog wheel, top-right of the screen) > Under Publications & Bookings > Select Publications.

You will see a list of the publications you have set up. 

1. Click the green 'New Publication' Button

2. This will open a dialogue box where you enter the following information:

  • The name of the new publication
  • The publishing interval
  • The start month and year
  • The number of pages in your publication including the front and rear covers. 
  • Click Save when you have finished, and your new publication will be set up.

NOTE: It is possible to change the number of pages from month to month from the flat plan, by adding and removing pages.

 

Setting publication defaults: advert sizes, sales targets & default prices

You can set defaults for the publication such as the copy deadline, sales targets and default price for various advert sizes and update the issue name eg Winter 20203 rather than December 2020.

On the Settings Page (click on the cog wheel, top-right of the screen) > Under Publications & Bookings > Select Publications > Select one of your publications. 

Select the Issues tab:

From here click the edit button far right and you can update the issue description, add a copy deadline date, sales target amount per issue and theme name.  To save changes click the same button which will now display the save icon.

Select the defaults tab:

This is the place to set up which advert sizes are available to you in MagManager (the sizes you select will be available for both adverts and content across all publications in your account).

MagManager has a large number of advert sizes available, click the toggle switches to enable the ones you want to use. When you hover over the toggle switches, you will see a representation of how this advert size looks on a page.
