Resource Inventory Upload

Information in the CSV’s need to match information and formats programmed on our database, a small error could result in problems uploading. The below guidelines will help you mitigate these errors and get you up and running quickly on the MEG platform.


  • Programme IDs: These can be found from the ‘Add programmes’ tab in the Data Centre navigation.
  • Programme/ Season: Each row in the CSV can be considered as a season of episodes. If the airing time of the episodes are repetitive (same day(s), time(s)) then all that needs to be done is add 1st broadcast date, time, frequency, number of broadcast days and the system will calculate the rest.
  • If you are uploading new episodes for the same programme, you will need to increase the season number by 1.
  • Restrictive categories – these are a chance to filter out brand categories that should not appear on the channel. Please copy and paste the relevant categories below into the CSV.
  • BP = Base Price. In these columns, you will add your rate card for each length of creative. Please do not add currency symbols.
  • 1st Slot, 2nd Slot, Last Slot allows you to add a price % uplift to these positions
  • 7WK UP, 6WK UP etc: This is also if you want to add a price uplift in the weeks before the programme airs.


  • If you are working on the document in .xls, you will need to convert to .csv (by saving as .csv) before uploading onto the platform
  • Do not change column headers
  • Prog ID column should have a programme ID as opposed to a programme name. You can create your ID’s on the MEG platform. MEG can supply these during soft launch.
  • Time is always in the HH:MM ie 00:00 format. Do not add seconds.
  • Days of Broadcast are the actual days the episodes are shown. For example, if there is an episode once a week and 8 days are specified, this would be 8 weeks worth of inventory.
  • If there are different values in one cell, please use a comma to separate each value,
  • If a value is 0 or N/A – please leave blank
  • Days of the week are 3 letters only (and this includes wed and thu!)
  • Frequency should be completed in the following example format:
  • weekly(sat,sun)
  • monthly
  • weekends
  • daily
  • daily(weekends)
  • All break lengths in sec should be multiples of 5 or 10secs
  • All uplifts should be a whole number and have a %
  • All prices should be whole numbers and NOT have a currency symbol
