Hello! So I'm trying to build a stats board that is 1 display, but has 2 different pages it cycles through (staying on each page for about 30 seconds each). The stats it displays are pretty basic (web widgets, time, a logo).

I'm not sure how to do this. I looked at this help article, but surely there must be an easier way?

If I am understanding you correctly;

You want one presentation to play for 30 seconds then another presentation to play for xx seconds then back to the first and continue?

If so, just build the second one, then add both to your schedule and time accordingly.

That's correct! So basically copy the original presentation, modify it as necessary, and then change the schedule on the display so that it goes through each one every XX seconds?

Yes,
1. make a second presentation. (similar layout or totally different, doesn't matter)
2. add both presentations to a schedule
3. set duration timing on each presentation to how ever long you want each to play
4. set the schedule timeline to when you want the presentations to show up (example: Mondays from 8am-6pm)
4. set your player to play that schedule

That's it, it will just continuously rotate  between them as long as they are within the schedules playing timeframe.

OR you can have different items rotating in the same presentation and the same placeholder. I prefer this way because it allows basic transition effects between different items. You cannot have it if you scheduling different presentations.

But then it gets more complicated if you have more than 1 placeholder... chose whichever way works better for your content.

Good point! I'm actually doing this very thing on a presentation now, but it's gotten to the point where we have a variety of content to show now.
