Each zone can have an unlimited amount of playlist items, this then creates a playlist. The playlist can be made up of a mixture of the playlist items, which are 'Text', 'Media', 'Playlist', 'Widget' and 'Plugin'.

When you have added a zone, you can double click the zone or click 'Edit Zones Playlist' to enter the zone where you can view and edit the zones playlist.

Adding Playlist Items

To add a playlist item, simply select it from the options bar at the top of the screen. The playlist item will then be added to the zones playlist, where you can edit its settings and customise the item.

Changing Playback Order

When you add multiple playlist items, you will see each item will be giving a number for the order they will be shown, if available. The order can be changed by simply dragging and dropping the playlist items. The playlist will play from top to bottom, once the last playlist item has shown, the order will be played on a continuous loop.

You can then edit each playlist items settings, things such as the items timing can be changed to determine how long it show for before moving onto the next available item. You can select multiple items and change specific settings which will be configured for all the items selected.

You can then preview your layout, by clicking 'Save Changes' and selecting 'Save & preview'.
