Issue with embedded presentations: Play Until Done not detecting presentation length

I have 3 presentations.  I want to make a single presentation containing all 3 presentations, each containing images with set display lengths and each presentation has a run schedule.  (If you look at my company account, just search for "monday" and you'll see the presentations I'm using for testing.)

When I nest them and put in a length, the master presentation runs fine.

When I select Play Until Done on the child presentations, the master presentation gets stuck on one of the presentations and will not progress.  

I've tested this in Preview, the Chrome App (on an iMac), and the Raspberry Pi player.

I currently have a very clunky workflow that is functional, but makes my life difficult each week, especially when we have special events.  I'm trying to use nested presentations to make that workflow more streamlined.  The PUD feature has great potential if we can get the kinks worked out!

Blake, rcruse, just to be clear, there are two issues here. One is that an embedded Presentation within a Placeholder Playlist is not sending it's Done command as we would expect, that is the issue that is being pursued now, and the second is that the Scheduler needs to have functionality in it to use the Done command from a Presentation to move to the next Presentation. That is new functionality that we don't have and it is in the backlog, long list, but high up the list. Solving the first issue doesn't resolve the second one. Just to make sure we are all clear on expectations. Thanks!
