Xibo has a sophisticated scheduling system which allows for the simple creation of complex schedules for Events across Displays/Display Groups.
Events are administered from the Schedule section of the menu and managed from the calendar interface.
The CMS supports scheduling for the following Event types:
Select Published Layouts to schedule to Displays.
Select Campaigns to schedule to Displays.
Overlay Layout Event
Specially created Overlay Layouts are scheduled at the same time as existing Layouts to create an overlay of content to be displayed.
Interrupt Layout Event
- Interrupt Layouts
- Available from CMS: 2.2
- Interrupt Layouts 2.2
A Layout that is scheduled as an Interrupt Layout will interrupt your usual schedule to fit around other scheduled Layouts to play for the specified Share of Voice percentage set.
A Scheduled Command can be executed by the Player at a specific point in time and therefore this type of event does not need a
Available Commands can be selected using the Command drop-down menu on the Schedule Event form.
- Scheduled Action Events
- Available from CMS: 3.1
- Scheduled Action Events 3.1
Actions allows listening for webhooks independently to Layouts. Users can schedule Action Events to Navigate to a Layout or run a Command.
Events are scheduled into Dayparts. Select from the two available options when configuring an Event:
Create your own To/From dates and times.
Select to have the event run constantly.
Use Event Priority to determine whether the event should be included in the schedule for the Player or not. A ‘Priority Event’ is determined by a number, with 0 considered the lowest Priority.
If 1 of the Events has a Priority of 1, then this will be the only Event shown.
If there are some Events with Priority 0, some with Priority 1 and some with Priority 2 only the Priority 2 Events will be shown, in a rotation for that Scheduled period (as the highest Priority)
A good example to use Priority would be in a way to alter the Schedule at a specific time, for example, a normal rotation during the day with a Priority Event at lunchtime which shows specific ‘lunch’ information (i.e. Lunchtime specials on a cafe menu).
