Schedules allow you to select and define auto play Playlists that will run at certain times throughout the week. The clock is running 24/7 and can run continuously if required*.
To create a schedule simply click or touch the rough time of day you would like your Playlist to begin. This will open up the Schedule Edit Window, where you can define the status and duration in hours and minutes.
Schedule Edit Window
Select the playlist you wish to schedule from the Playlist drop down menu. Select Active from the Status drop down menu. Choose the times you wish the playlist to run.
For example; if you wish the playlist to run at 08:30am, select 08 from the Start Time left drop down menu, and 30 from the Start Time right dropdown section. Choose a time for the playlist to automatically stop running in the lower drop down menus.
Once you have completed the steps above, you have a basic scheduled Playlist. However, it is necessary to let the software know you wish to activate it. This is done by checking the Schedule Active box as shown here.
Then, it is necessary to reload the Scheduler to invoke the changes. To do this, you must call up the menu options. This is done by pressing the ESC key. This brings up the Tool Bar at the top of the screen
From the File menu item, select Reload Schedule. Your playlist is now fully active. If you are preparing a scheduled playlist for a future session, you may skip the Reload process as this is automatically done when the system is restarted.
*Standard supplied projector is not suited to run 24/7. This kind of use will require a more robust installation class projector.
