The schedule is hard to keep organized.  I have certain days, times, and dates set for each presentation, but can't tell what those are by glancing at the playlist - I have to click inside each one.  When I want to make a quick change, it's not very efficient.  For example, we had two very different slides show up one day for an event and one had old information, but I thought I had already deactivated it for that day.  If the schedule day/time/date were visible on the playlist screen, it would have been easier to see what else was playing on that day.

Hi Catherine,
Thanks for sharing your ideas here!
I saw that there is a similar comment made about schedules and we also have a question for one of your replies here about what you had in mind for improvements.

Thanks again,
Hannah

Not everyone in the office has access to my calendar and I'd like an 'at a glance' inside the schedules section.  Honestly something as simple as listing the day/time/date in the middle of this section here: why is the title of the presentation listed twice?

Catherine,

That first column is the name of the Presentation Item in your Schedule, so you can call that whatever you like. The second name, in the middle section, is the actual name of the Presentation that it is playing for that Presentation item.

What I am thinking you would like (and correct me if I am wrong), is maybe to the right of the Presentation name, the day/time/date that that Presentation is set for should show. Do I have that right?

Yes. Correct.  I was thinking it would condense the space if we just kept one of the titles (either one), but if you think that would cause a ruckus, then yes day/time/date the presentation is set to the right would be excellent.

We can still go into the presentation to edit that information, but it would be nice to see at a glance the actual schedule in the schedule playlist.  I appreciate your questions and help if it's possible!

Catherine,

Hopefully others agree that they would like this functionality and vote for this idea! That is typically how we determine the functionality that users would like to see in the platform.

Thanks!

We currently have to rename our playlists with the time is it scheduled. So it looks like 8AM-9AM Video, then you'd see the presentation name. It's a pain and you have to be very careful, would love to see scheduled times on the main screen.

We do the same as Tami, Catherine's request would be very useful for us as well.
Thank you,

Anybody else?  I had a 46 slide presentation on 2 different schedules and going in and out of each presentation to change one date/time was giving me motion sickness... : / I'm honestly ready to look into other programs.
