In this tutorial, we will cover placing licenses that are located in our Holding Tank into the Binary Tree.


To begin, log into your NetLeaders dashboard and click on the My Organization button on the left-hand side.



This will cause the sidebar to expand. Click on the Binary Tree button to open the Binary Tree.



Holding Tank


Once you are in the binary tree page click on the plus button in the middle of the screen.



On this screen, you can choose how the affiliate licenses are placed into the binary tree. The two choices are Manual and Automatic. 


Manual Placement


If you wish to manually place your affiliates licenses into the binary tree select the option manually and click the Next button.



Now you will be presented with four options, these options are there in case we do not make it in time to place the licenses before the calculation week ends, for the purposes of the binary tree placement each Saturday at 18:00 CET has been chosen as the time limit. These options are:

  • Weak - This option will automatically place the licenses in the leg with the weaker volume, this volume is adjusted once a week

  • Left - With this option selected all the licenses remaining in the holding tank at the end of the calculation week will automatically be placed onto your left leg

  • Right - With this option selected all the licenses remaining in the holding tank at the end of the calculation week will automatically be placed onto your right leg

  • Alternate - This will place licenses in the holding tank in the left - right - left - right order, as the name suggests alternating between legs



Once you have chosen the type of placement you are happy with, click on it and the message will appear in the top right corner of the screen notifying you of your success.



Should you ever wish to change the placement option you can always click on the drop-down menu and choose the new option, it will apply to all the future placements then.


Since the manual option lets you choose where you wish to place your affiliates licenses this means that any licenses which might currently reside within the holding tank still need to be placed. To do this click on the “Place” button next to the license you wish to place.



This will open up a new option where you can choose where you wish to place the license. Once you have decided where the license will be placed click on the appropriate “Left” or “Right” button.



Now that the position is marked you only need to click on the “OK” button and the license will be placed in the binary tree. 


WARNING: This decision is final, once the license is placed in the binary tree it can no longer be moved. Please make sure that the license is going to the correct leg. 



Green notification box in the top-right of the screen will show us that the placement was successful.


Automatic Placement


In case that you do not want to place the licenses in the binary tree manually, you can set up the Automatic option. This option will cause all the licenses in the Holding Tank to instantaneously move to the leg of your choice, and they will continue doing so until you select another option. The difference between Manual and Automatic placement is that in Manual the licenses will wait in the holding tank until Saturday at 18:00, with Automatic placement this is not the case and the licenses will not wait for you. Only enable automatic option if you are 100% sure that you wish to let the system place all the licenses instead of you.


To turn on auto placement, on the Binary Tree page click on your holding tank. If you have not set any placement option before you will be presented with a choice like at the start of the tutorial. If you are switching from Manual to Automatic you can click on the “Turn on auto-placement” button to activate Automatic placement.



Again you will be presented with different settings of the Automatic option:

  • Left - All the licenses will always go to your left leg as soon as they are activated

  • Alternate - All licenses will alternate the legs of your binary tree as soon as they are activated

  • Right - All the licenses will always go to your right leg as soon as they are activated


Once you have decided where do you wish the licenses to go press the corresponding setting and the “NEXT” button to proceed.



You will no be asked to confirm the Auto placement option being enabled and be required to tick the checkbox in which you confirm that you have understood the rules of the Auto placement option. 


WARNING: This decision is final, once the license is placed in the binary tree it can no longer be moved. Please make sure that the license is going to the correct leg. 



You will be shown the message in the top-right corner of the screen that the option has been successfully enabled. 



Should you decide at any moment that you wish to revert to the Manual placement option all you need to do is click on the Holding Tank and click the “Turn Off” button. This will give you the option to once again chose the type of Manual placement that you desire.



With this, we have explored all the options that the new Holding Tank interface provides.
