The ability to add urgent messages in within the system currently.

The downside is that it requires the user to be at SignStudio and refresh.

The alternative, that several companies are using -- allows for certain channels to be blank -- and then when a text message is sent to a certain address, it interrupts as programmed and plays for a certain amount of time. This is important for a variety of scenarios -- including short-term messaging -- and alerts -- that can go away after a designated time, ie. 1-5 minutes.

The current interation in MediaSignage is restrictive and a challenge to manage in real world scenarios.
