Assign default content for schedules

If you create a schedule, at times when there's no content scheduled, the screen is black by default.
For example the schedule below, at 7AM the screen will just display a black screen.
Sometime, you would want to set a default content so that when nothing is scheduled the default content will be displayed.

There are 2 ways you can setup defaults 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.

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

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