Scheduling playback

Top  Previous  Next

RadioBOSS lets you schedule tracks for automatic playback at predefined times. You can use the built-in scheduler to insert announcements and advertisements into the playback. The scheduler can play single files or playlists, and start Internet streams or line input.

 

You can also schedule commands for automatic execution (e.g. take a random playlist or track from a folder, change the volume, generate a playlist, and more). Most of the commands can be easily scheduled using the wizard.

 

To create a scheduler event, follow these steps:

 

1. In the Control Panel, select the Scheduler tab.

The scheduler window will open, with a list of all events scheduled:

 

scheduler_2

 

2. Click the Add... button.

 

The Event dialog will open, where you can configure the scheduling parameters.

 

scheduler_3

 

3. Click the Open button.

The Open dialog will open. Here you can browse through the folders and select a file (track or playlist) to play.

 

You can also use the Wizard, which will help you create an action:

 

scheduler_4

 

4. Set the date and time.

 

You can select a specific day and time to play a file only once, or schedule a repeated playback at a specific time on particular days. The scheduler also provides additional options to fine-tune the playback according to your preferences.

 

5. Click OK to save the scheduled task.

 

The task will be added to the task list in the scheduler window.

 

If the Manual option is active, the tasks will be turned on, but will only start manually (using the Run now button). The makelibrary, createbackup, and download commands will still launch.
