Exclude one category of items from timeline
« on: April 11, 2016, 09:23:28 PM »
I'm looking for solution to exclude one category of items (from catalog/xml/dropbox....??). I have connected c.a. 15 screens on one account. On all screens I have almost the same content except one set of items (pictures of products). I have c.a. 50 different products and on each screen I wold like to exclude one or two of them but on each screen it's different type of product (different pictures).

I was trying to use Catalog... but in catalog I have to sign all types of product I want to display on each timeline. If I add another product type I have to change every timelines. Additionally on Catalog I can't change sequence of products display (there is no "move up / down" option) - am I right?

I was trying to use XML file / XML Player. But here again - there is only option "product.(@type=='A')" in Items Path. I can't use it as "product.(@type!='A')".

I was trying to use dropbox - but here again is a filter option but I need "negative/exclude" filter.

Is anybody here who can help me how can I solve my problem in easiest way? I won't to create separate collection/dropbox folder for each timeline.

Thank you,
