Ability to have timeline play one item at a time
« on: April 26, 2014, 07:08:14 AM »
You guys are doing a great job on things but it would be nice to be able to create a playlist with say 100 quotes in it. Place it on the timeline and when it comes to it, it plays one item and then the next time play another and so on. This would be a GREAT feature because you could always keep content fresh

Cheers

Four Winds Interactive has a similar feature.

They have a 'random' folder that is part of a playlist.
A playlist can have 10 random folders along with other content.

When it hits the random folder, it will -- you guessed it -- randomly select a particular item to play

image - image - random folder of images and videos - image - image - image - image - random folder 2 of different images and videos - image - image - repeat

It's great for dumping prepaid ads in the random folder and location specific content in between.
Along with other uses.

I would like to 2nd the idea of the "RANDOM" folder. We need this to stay on par with other Signage Solutions.  ;)
