Station Update Scheduler
« on: March 05, 2018, 01:07:27 PM »
For huge companies, with many active screens, updating content during business hours can be a big impact on the internet bandwidth.
I would suggest developing a Content Update Scheduler.
It allows specific content update schedules, during periods with greater internet bandwidth availability, such as during dawn.

I would like to 2ND this suggestion!!!  ;D

I actually need this functionality NOW and for a future clients.
We can't have new content being downloaded during "OPEN" business hours for some of our businesses due to bandwidth limitations.
As it is now - we take a "CHANCE" if the player reboots during the day & pulls new data then we get caught.  >:(

but you can scheduled a reboot per station, so just save to the network and scheduler a time for reboot per station and on re-load it will re-download latest network changes.

I think your missing what we both meant.
     If a player losses internet connection OR restarts by accident during business hours - it will "AUTOMATICALLY" pull all the new resources without us being able to stop it from doing so.
I understand that the way the system is now - resources are pulled to the player as requested in the timeline and fully downloading when call on to play for the first time.

Can you make a "PUSH ALL RESOURCES TO STATION" function that will allow us to manually "PUSH" all new resources to the Signage Player at a set time of day?
I would even accept this function if it pushed ALL resources in the studio (even if they are not needed in the timeline) to the Station.

Please put that on the "TO DO" list

I understand, I will add to the TO-DO list a push feature as well...
FYI release 6.1 which is now out was our last major release for 2018 which means we will spend the rest  of the year focusing on micro enhancements, touch micro updates and user requests... cool we know :)
