Repeat Scheduling

Users are able to repeat selected programs in the schedule to maximize the efficiency when scheduling channels. This allows for bulk scheduling of existing and episodic content using advanced patterns. For example, scheduling a series marathon for the entire channel could be completed in seconds.

To use this feature, the user can select a linear program and invoke the Advanced Options menu by right-clicking the selections and input business rules:

  • Choose content

    • For all content (VOD, Automation, Live):

      • Same as Selected

    • For episodic content (VOD):

      • Next Episode (On last episode: Loop or Stop)

      • Shuffle

  • Number of times

    • 1 to 1,000

  • Choose programming pattern

    • Back-to-back (i.e.: marathon)

    • Daily (i.e.: episodice stripping

    • Days of the Week (Mo, Tu, We, Th, Fr, Sa, Su)

    • Weekly


Configure advanced scheduling parameters

For selected content that contain more than one linear program, the user can review these exceptions and override the default program selection By default, the program having similar internal title as the selected source program is chosen. If not matched by internal title, then the newest created program.


Manage exception multi-program scenarios

Finally, programs already scheduled in a channel contains a distinct visual pattern. When the user hovers over a program, the entire group of programs related to that repeat pattern is highlighted.
