Schedule Overview Guide
Check out our latest feature which allows users to easily see their playback overview and edit Campaign schedules in the same Screen Group!
Do you struggle to find a way to visualize all your Campaign schedules for each Screen Group? Maybe you even catch yourself using pen and paper to track how each Campaign will play to find a good balance? Or maybe you just worry about empty time slots which will lead to blank screens? Look no further, we’ve got your new favourite tool!
We’re very happy to announce our new Schedule Overview App. It’s the easiest way to see multiple Campaigns in a Screen Group. But it doesn’t stop there. It also permits for editing to streamline the scheduling process all within one application. It might just be the feature you’ve been waiting for or the one you didn’t even know you needed…until now! Either way, it will most certainly become a useful tool to keep track of your Campaign schedules and make sure everything is on track.
How to access it:
You can access the Schedule Overview in two ways; either from the SCREENS tab or from the CAMPAIGNS tab. They are both similar, but will bring you to a slightly different view.
When looking at your Screen Groups, you’ll notice a calendar icon in the middle of each group. If you click this it will bring you to the Schedule Overview, displaying all Campaigns currently assigned to that Screen Group. If you want to display individual Campaigns, just click on the preferred Campaign in the side panel to your right. NOTE: All Campaign schedules have a slight opacity. If you click show all Campaigns and they have the exact same schedule, you won’t notice each individual Campaign as they will display as a stacked list.
In the fourth column of your Campaigns list, you’ll see all the Screen Groups each Campaign is playing in. If you click on a Screen Group name, this will bring you to the Schedule Overview for that Screen Group with the particular Campaign highlighted. If you want to see all the Campaigns in the Screen Group, just click on Show all Campaigns.
NOTE: if there’s only one Campaign playing in that Screen Group, you won’t see the Show all Campaigns option.
How it works:
Apart from the obvious benefit of viewing multiple Campaign schedules simultaneously, the Schedule Overview comes with another great advantage; editing individual schedules.
To add, edit and delete time slots, start by choosing the preferred Campaign in the side panel to your right.
To ADD existing time slots
To add new times to your schedule, there’s a couple of ways of doing this. - To fill the entire week, click on the red icon in the top left corner. - To fill an entire day, click on the preferred weekday heading, E.G Monday. - To add a specific time to a day, click on the plus sign next to the preferred day. This will bring up a dialog box where you can type in your preferred time for that day. - You can always click and drag across the schedule to add time slots too. This is handy if you want to add the same time slot for multiple days, such as a lunch schedule Monday to Friday.
Note: All existing time slots will be combined with new ones if they overlap. This means you can easily expand an existing time slot by simply dragging to or from that particular time slot.
To EDIT existing time slots
To edit a time slot, simply click on it. A dialog box will then appear where you can alter the start and end time. As mentioned above, you can click and drag from or into an existing time slot to expand this time slot too.
To DELETE existing time slots a time slot
To delete a time slot, hover your mouse over it and a red icon will appear in the top left corner. Clicking on this will delete the time slot. You can also click on the weekday twice to clear all time slots that day.
If you want to view and edit Campaign schedules in other Screen Groups, choose a Screen Group from the drop-down menu on the top (where the current Screen Group is labelled)
