Scheduled Segments

Within Channel configuration you may want to create content intended to be broadcasted at a specific date & time. This could include content intended to be displayed a specific date and time (like a contest), or maybe you want to prep content on your channel for the month (“set it and forget it!”), like birthday or anniversary announcements.  The Scheduled Lineup, available within each Channel configuration page, will allow you to configure any time-specific content for that particular Channel.  

Configuring a Scheduled Lineup for your Channel

  1. From the Configuration tab, click Channels.
  2. Select a Channel where you would like to schedule steps.
  3. In the middle column, select the “Scheduled Lineup” (Default indicates your non-scheduled lineup)
  4. The Scheduled Lineup will default to your current date, but you may click into the calendar picker to select any date in the future on which you would like to schedule new segments or add steps.
  5. The scheduled lineup is grouped together in Segments, which are defined as one or more step.  To start a new Segment, drag any step type over into your Scheduled Lineup (you may select anything available in either Leaderboards or Extras).
    • For more information on the different Lineup components, see this article.
    • There is no limit to the number of Segments you may have in your Scheduled Lineup on any given day, but two segments cannot have the same start time
  6. Define your New Segment Details
    • In the right-hand column give your New Segment a Name (i.e. Power Hour or Call Blitz)
    • Set the Start date and time for the Segment
      • Start date and time must be a set for a time in the future
      • Start time will display independent of timezone (i.e. if Segment is configured at 8am, Segment will display at 8:00am PST or 8:00 EST)
    • Select how you frequently want your Segment to appear in the default lineup
      • Once Daily - the Sequence will interrupt your Default lineup once daily
      • Reappear during the day - the Sequence will interrupt your Default lineup at the time set, and then will reappear at the end of each loop of your Default lineup
      • Select an end time to define the period of time you wish to see your scheduled Segment (i.e. 8:00am-5:00pm)
    • Select how often you want your Segment to repeat*
      • Never
      • Daily
      • Weekly (select which days of the week you want to see the segment repeat)
      • *If you delete a repeating segment on any particular day, any occurrences of that segment will be deleted, meaning the segment and all repetitions, past or present, will be deleted.
    • Select an End date for your Segment repetition
      • Never (segment will play indefinitely)
      • End Date
  7. Configure your step(s) within your Segment
    • Configure the display details for each step
    • Drag any additional steps into your Scheduled Lineup
    • You can reorder the steps within a Segment
  8. Finally, don't forget to click Save.
  9. If you want to delete a Segment, click the X next to the Segment name and click Save. 
    • Note: Deleting a Segment set to repeat will delete all instances of the repetition
