Audio files can also be directly uploaded to a specified Folder location.

There is an option to set expiry dates and times for files uploaded to this particular Widget.
- Tick the Set Expiry Dates box.
Use the date picker to select Start and End dates and times.
Further options are available to remove the Widget from the Playlist on expiry and to delete the media file from the Library.
Click the Start upload button to begin the upload of all files added. If a Folder/Expiry Dates have been selected and there are multiple files to be added, all files will be uploaded to the specified location and have the same Expiry Dates set.
Once successfully uploaded, click Done.
Files can also be uploaded individually and have different Folder locations/Expiry dates and times specified. Instead of clicking on the Start upload button, click on the blue upload button shown at the end of the row for an added file.
Change the Folder location using the Select Folder button as before and then click the blue button at the end of the row to upload just that singular file.
- Once all files have been individually uploaded, click Done.
