Schedule given layout to play every 30min (1.6.4)

Asked by Paweł Będź

I am using Xibo 1.6.4.
I have a campaign running in a loop for whole day (with 8 layouts in it). Now i have to add single layout (with short, 52sec movie only) and it should be played every 30min (give or take 1-2 minutes). Is there different way than scheduling that layout with priority many times/day (every 30min)?
How exactly "Repeat every" field in scheduler works? Can i select "repeat hourly" and enter 0.5 in that field?
And no, i cant extend my campaign to last 30min (it is ~16min total).

You could add everything in your current campaign again (so they are in there twice) and then add your movie layout once.

To use the scheduling approach you will need to have two schedules repeating hourly (to get the 30 minute repeat). Repeat by Minutes is included in 1.7 beta.

Ok. I have also 1.7 beta for testing, but library in it shows nothing... I will wait for rc version (cant afford to mess up production environment).

That answers solves my question - didnt though about doing 2 schedules and repeat them hourly! Thank You!
