Assign default content for schedules

When a schedule has no content at certain times, the default display is a black screen. To address this, consider setting a default content so that during unscheduled periods, the designated content will be displayed.

There are 2 ways you can set default content:

1. At the schedule level (apply to a schedule only). To do so, click on the Schedule you want to edit, then click Option.

Then select if you want to use:

  • None: just a black screen when nothing is scheduled
  • Use Account Default: using what is set at the account level (see #2 below for how).
  • Asset: select an asset to be displayed when nothing is scheduled
  • Playlist: Select a playlist to be played when nothing is scheduled 

2. Or at the Account level so it will apply to all newly created schedules. (In case you are both at the account level and at the schedule level, the schedule level setting will take priority for that schedule).

Then select if you want to use:

  • None: just a black screen when nothing is scheduled
  • Asset: select an asset to be displayed when nothing is scheduled
  • Playlist: Select a playlist to be played when nothing is scheduled 

Summary:

Sometimes, you would want to set a default content so that when nothing is scheduled the default content will be displayed. There are 2 ways to set default content, one is at each schedule level, and one is at the whole account level and will be applied to all newly created schedules.
