A quick look at the attached image says the thousand words I don't need to type.
  1. A 'visibility' toggle would allow for quick on/off of scheduled presentations without modifying the timeline.
  2. A small blurb of text with essential info on presentations' timelines.

Derek,

Just so I understand, when it is "visible", that means it is currently playing, and hidden means it is not playing, correct? What if each Presentation is set for 10 seconds? Does that mean that those would change every 10 seconds?

Also, 7 - 6:30 MTWTF, what about if it is set on specific days, or year, etc etc.

I worry about that area getting a little too cluttered :) Just wondered what you thought about that.

Thanks!

Visible = playing; hidden = not playing. Whatever presentations in the schedule are not 'hidden' would continue to play, no matter their duration.

My aim is to eliminate the need to click on each presentation in the playlist and make edits and save, or take a look at the timeline and cancel. At present, when I want to temporarily hide a presentation, I change the timeline to some date in the future. Sometimes I forget to go back and reset it. I can as easily turn the presentations back on as I could turn them off if there were 'eyeball' icons.

As for the timeline blurb example, I condensed the actual data (which I realize can be quite complicated and not condensable) to just the duration and selected days.

Perhaps displaying the entire timeline data, as shown when one edits a playlist item, could pop-up when the mouse hovers over, or clicks, an icon, instead of having to go through the edit process.

Good idea. The same could be applied to placeholders too.

I have voted for the idea. Couple of add ons

 

If we can show the presentation duration in the playlist and also the total duration of schedule. Either of that will be good handy.
