Multiple playlists

Need to show specific content on your screens in a specific time range?
Now it is possible with a few clicks:

We’ve updated the interface of our Playlist creation in order to provide you with a better overall experience scheduling your content. Now you can schedule content by adding a new playlist and choosing the time you would like this content to be shown on a screen.

For example, during the time between breakfast and lunch, a restaurant could display a message such as, “Today’s special – Fish & Chips” You can create a default playlist that displays 24 hours a day on every day of the week, and additionally, create another playlist for specific time periods. In the restaurant example, the default event is “Regular Menu”. If the Special Offer with Fish and Chips is scheduled from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m., it would be displayed instead.

You can also duplicate your playlist now!

It is super easy to do just press “Duplicate” and select the location where it should be duplicated to:

Scheduling

The Restaurant Special Offer is an example of schedules that display content for a limited time, such as a breakfast menu that displays only from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Select a time slot for your new playlist and it will be scheduled.
