One thing we know that our users have wanted for a long time is the ability to mark Schedules as Play Until Done (PUD), and that day has finally arrived!

Head to the Schedules app at https://apps.risevision.com/schedules and create a new Schedule. Add a Presentation to that Schedule, and notice that included in the Duration section is a Play Until Done option:




Check that option, and now this Presentation will move to the next Presentation or URL item in the Schedule after all the content in the “Play Until Done Placeholder” has played!

A great example where this comes in handy is if you have a main Presentation, and a single video Presentation that you want to play every 15 minutes. Add your main Presentation to the Schedule and set that duration for 900 seconds (15 minutes). Now, add the single video presentation, and have it set to Play Until Done. Assign the appropriate Displays, and save the Schedule. Now the main Presentation plays for 15 minutes, then the single video plays until it is completed, and then back to the main Presentation.

Keep in mind that this functionality relies on the “Play Until Done” or PUD Placeholder, which is a setting you can assign to any Placeholder in your Presentation. If a PUD Placeholder is not set, Rise will automatically pick the first placeholder in the list as the PUD placeholder, so you want to make sure the correct Placeholder is assigned this setting:




PUD Schedules are only available at https://apps.risevision.com/schedules and will not be available at https://rva.risevision.com.

As always, we value your feedback and comments, so be sure to let us know what you think of this new functionality!

Hi Ashleigh,
I understand this feature is slightly in relation to alleviating the issues surrounding the Embedded Presentation issue. I do have a couple of questions, that I haven't yet had the chance to test internally...so I figured I'd ask them first.

How does the single Presentation PUD Placeholder understand something other than a video? For example how would it understand a Web Page Widget or Image set as the PUD Placeholder?

If the Main Presentation is playing, say for 900 seconds, and I have numerous video's in there...would the 900 second cutoff, stop a video half way through in order to play the next schedule?

Thank you,
Joe Kirchner
