A power feature of the solution is the scheduling feature.
The Studio allows you to schedule a creative within a playlist to run in a specific date range and/or run in specific times and/or run on specific days of the week. The same way you can schedule a whole playlist to run within a player (as players can have more than one playlist).
A good example can be having one playlist scheduled to run on weekends and another playlist scheduled to run on work days. Another example can be a creative which is scheduled to run during the day time and another creative scheduled to run at night (like a screen saver).
So, how do I schedule a creative?
Edit a playlist. In the main area you’ll see the creatives of the playlist. On each creative thumbnail there is a small datetime picker icon on its top. Clicking the datetime picker icon will allow you to schedule the creative. If you scheduled the creative, the datetime picker icon will have a round clock icon on top of it, letting you know that this creative was scheduled.
If a creative was scheduled not to run at this moment, you’ll see the word “Expired” on it.
And how do I schedule a playlist?
The same way you can schedule a playlist within a player. Edit a player. In the main area you’ll see the playlists of the player. On each playlist thumbnail there is a small datetime picker icon on its top. Clicking the datetime picker icon will allow you to schedule the playlist.
Here are the combinations you can have for scheduling:
Please notice that in that a playlist schedule always overrides a creative schedule. So, if you have a creative which was scheduled to run on Monday morning, but the whole playlist is scheduled to run only on Saturday and Sunday, that creative won’t run on Monday.
