Another idea for to improve the management of a schedule with several presentations.
I've seen several requests already and this one in particular :  

I would love to avoid having to calculate the duration of a presentation when several gadget are used in a placeholder. I would imagine just to define the main Placeholder for the page (as on today for ‘Play until Done Placeholder’) and the total duration for the page based on that placeholder would be processed. This calculation would make the sum of the duration for each gadget. For the standard Video or the HTML5 Video gadget, the total length of the video should be retrieved by Risevision (but still editable by the user)  

And let’s continue dreaming about the perfect improvement : In the Placeholder setting menu, I would enjoy if 3 new columns would be added (see also the same type of idea for multiple presentations in a schedule : ) :

1- duration of each gadget as set by the user or, for video, extracted automatically

2- total duration starting from the first gadget. I mean, show the total duration for the list of gadgets since the start of (for instance, for the 3rd gadget, total duration would be total duration of gadget 1 +  gadget 2 + gadget 3)

3- Show the planned timeline for each presentation (specific schedule of each gadget)

If you like the idea, thanks to like it
