How do I sync content playing in my Presentation in a Schedule?

Let's say I have a Presentation with 2 Placeholders called ph1 and ph2:

Each Placeholder needs to have a total run time of 70 seconds. In the first Placeholder (ph1), I have 7 Image Widgets, each running each for 10 seconds:

In the second Placeholder (ph2), I have 5 items. 4 of them are Image Widgets running for 10 seconds and the 5th is the Video Widget running for 30 seconds.

In total, I have a run time of 70 seconds for each Placeholder.

What happens if I have this Presentation in a Schedule with multiple other Presentations, and this Presentation item is set to play for 40 seconds? Eventually, the content in those Placeholders will fall out of sync.

Luckily, there is a very simple way to keep this Placeholder content in sync! Go back to the Schedule, and change this Presentation item to run for 70 seconds instead of 40 seconds:

If you run into a similar dilemma with the Placeholder content in a Presentation going out of sync (and you'd like to sync them), find out what the total run time is for the content in those Placeholders, and then use that as the Duration for that Presentation item in the Schedule.

If you have any further questions about the above, let us know!
