Blanking ticker display during a specific time period

We have a Rise Display in a classroom that runs continuously based on a series of gadgets. An instructor would like to the ticker display to be disabled during their 3-hour class period. It appears that we cannot run gadgets for a specific time period but not a specific day. Is there a setting I am missing or can you suggest a workaround. To be clear, we would like the ticker to run continuously except during specific days and time periods (e.g. 24/7 except Tuesdays from 6 pm to 9 pm and Wednesday from 3 pm to 5 pm).

Another, perhaps related question. Is it possible to run an extended gadget (say from 8 am to 5 pm on weekdays) that effectively blanks/blacks out the Rise ticker display?

Joe,

There's a power save option on the ticker display that could do that.  It would be more ideal if the times you want the Ticker to blank are consistent.  By default the setting is off so that the Ticker will show the content all the time.

Please let us know if you need anything further.

Thanks.

Hi Neal,

Thank you. Would you confirm that these settings http://bit.ly/1w8s6K7 will blank out the ticker every Tuesday from 6 pm to 9 pm through December 15? Secondly, is it possible to schedule more than one re-occurrence (e.g. in addition Thursdays from 2 pm to 5 pm) to blank out the ticker?

Joe,

It should blank the Ticker every Tuesday based on those settings.  Right now the Ticker is only able to handle a single schedule.

Thanks.

Hi Neal,

The settings for our Rise Ticker  http://bit.ly/1w8s6K7 has not changed but the ticker did not go into power save last night (Tuesday from 6 to 9 pm). It did work on the 28th, however.

Joe,

Do you know if the Ticker went into a power save mode an hour off? Its possible that the clocks going back an hour may have had an effect on the timings.

Thanks.
