How To Create and Modify a Recurring Schedule Using Playlists

Playlist can be used to create a recurring schedule using Layouts or just Assets (images or videos).
Layouts or Assets (images or videos) within a playlist can be scheduled to only play when you schedule it to player. The steps below will help walk through setting up conditional playback for your assets.
​1) Clicking on the ‘Properties’ icon will allow you to set Asset specific playback attributes that affect just that Asset:2) The order in which you have the Assets will be the order in which they playback subject to any specific playback attributes you set. You can drag the Assets around when they are on the timeline to put them is the order that you require.
3) Clicking on the ‘Properties’ icon will allow you to set Asset specific playback attributes that affect just that Asset. Leaving the Start Date, End Date, Time Range, Day(s) of the week and Tags blank will mean that this Asset will play continuously in a loop along with other Assets that have no attributes set.
Important Note about Playlist Schedules

The time range needs to span 24 hours for any scheduling to work correctly​.​ For example: First asset could be 12:00am – 1:00pm, next asset would be 1:00pm to 11:59pm. ​Please also ensure that the time is set correctly on your player. ​

4) After setting up your schedule, a Force Update must be sent to the player to download and write the schedule on the playerPlease see: How Do I Force Update Players
