What are some advanced scheduling options in Appspace?

The channel editing feature has several niche features that may prove useful - see this article for the basics of scheduling content.

  • Per folder settings: clicking on the Pencil next to a folder and selecting Configure folder settings brings up a menu that lets you configure items on a folder-by-folder basis.

    • Filters allow you to narrow down what content from a given folder makes it through to your channel. See more here
    • Under Playout Properties, you can once again set Transition, Aspect Ratio, and Duration.
      These settings override the defaults set in the channel-wide settings.
    • Schedule, Dayparting, and Frequency all allow you to tune when the content shows up on the screen: See here for details
    • Schedule and Dayparting allow you to select when that folder's content is available to go into rotation
    • Frequency allows you to select how often the content comes up in the rotation.
      For example, setting an airtime of 50% means the folder you are editing will split the time on the screen equally with every other folder or direct allocation.
  • Per item settings:

    • Clicking on the menu to the far right of a content item's name provides the option to disable or move the item to the top/bottom of the list.
    • Items can also be re-ordered by dragging the handle on the far left side of the content item's bar.
    • Clicking on the three-icon settings button opens a settings menu that is identical to the one at the folder level.
      Any settings applied here override both the channel default and the folder default.
    • Finally, in the settings menu at the top bar of the channel, there is an option to change the layout of the channel.
