I am working on building a presentation and would like to have some images that cycle through. I am using the image placeholder and adding multiple images to the playlist. Some images I would like to play until tomorrow at 12noon and some until monday @ 12noon. I am confused with the timer feature. Is the end time the end time for every day or will it play all day until my end time? Does that make sense?

Mark,

The Start Time/End Time portion will only address the hours of the day for an image to show.  If you are wanting it to stop on a particular day, you'll need to uncheck the No End Date and specify the last day you want the content to appear on.

If you are looking at having the content be available to run 24 hours a day until the last day (to end at 12pm), you'll need 2 entries in the Playlist.  One for the portion that is available 24hours a day (and ends the day prior to the overall end date you want.  The other will only be used on the last day (same start/end dates) and just scheduled to run until 12pm.

Thanks.
