Scheduling Mode Campaign : to be improved ?
« on: February 14, 2013, 02:58:21 PM »
Hello,

I have noticed, using the Scheduling mode, that it could actually be improved.
You have 3 ways of "Repeat" the Timeline within your Schedule in order to creat your Pattern : Once, Daily and Weekly.

But, when you need to place a 5 minutes Timeline 4 times per hour, 10 hours a day, and the same thing with another Timeline, then it gets time consuming...(this means 80 different items in the day, that I would need to duplicate everyday).

There is one repeat mode missing : the one that would allow to create such repetitions within one day.

Do you think you could include that feature in the coming updates ?

Thanks

Here, it's all about scheduling options that make life easier and not harder.  Media Signage, PLEASE!!!  You have got to give this proper attention and not a work around.  Any content item on a timeline must be given options for repeatability and scheduling and once it expires it needs to remove itself from the timeline.  Ideally, you should be able to double click to bring up options where all of the scheduling features should be available to you there.  Perhaps an item that has a schedule associated with it could have an icon overlay on it within the timeline or a colored box around it to bring attention to it.

I agree... Ideally, I'd like to use the scheduler.  But it's so clunky and not user friendly I stay far away from it.  Would gladly take some improvements/updates...

I agreed and demand...

Another digital signage systems have more effective schedules options. My sugestion is: a Sequence timeline have a initial date and a expire date. Its simple to use, but very useful.l Almost of the problems are gone with this solution.
