Basic information

This article explains how to manage video shows via Scheduler & Template week.

For general information about Scheduler & Template week, see the alternative article below:



Open Scheduler & Template week

To get started, go to Scheduler > Scheduler & Template week.



Select a video tube

Before you can schedule video shows via Scheduler & Template week, at least one video tube needs to be configured for your site.

If your site has multiple tubes, select the video tube you want to manage using the Tubes drop-down menu. Video tubes are marked with the camera icon.

For detailed information about tubes, including how to request a new tube, see the following article:



Select a view

When you use Scheduler & Template week, you can switch between the "Scheduler" and "Template week" views.

The basic purpose of each view is described below:

  • Scheduler: Update the broadcast schedule as it appears on the public site. See what is currently scheduled on each specific date. Update the settings or add unique metadata for individual episodes.
  • Template week: Manage the generic schedule (or template) for live broadcasting. Schedule a regular show that will stream a new unique episode at the same time each week. Update the generic settings for an existing show that will apply by default for each new episode.

For more detailed information, see the following article:



Schedule a new video show

To schedule a new video show:

  1. Select the empty time block on the schedule that approximately matches when you want to schedule the show. You will be able to define the exact start and end time later.
  2. Select Add new show.
  3. Add the settings for the show.
  4. Click Save to confirm.

The video show is now scheduled. If you scheduled a one-off show via Scheduler, it is immediately visible on the public site. If you scheduled a regular show via Template week, it will not be visible on the public site until the data from Template week is added in Scheduler. For details, see the following article:



Update a video show

To update an existing video show:

  1. Select show you want to update, and hit Edit.
  2. Update the settings for the show.
  3. Click Save to confirm.

The settings are now updated. If you updated the settings for an individual episode via Scheduler, the changes are immediately visible on the public site. If you updated the settings for a regular show via Template week, the settings will apply for each new episode that is added in Scheduler. For details, see the following article:



Manage settings

The following settings are available for each video show:


Date or Day

The option you see varies, depending on the selected view:

  • Template week: Select a day of the week under Day. A new episode of the video show will stream on the selected day every week.
  • Scheduler: Select a date under Date. The individual episode / one-off broadcast will stream on the selected date.

All dates and times should be entered according to the local time for your site (not the local time on your device).


Start and End

Under Start, enter the start time for the video show. Under End, enter the end time for the show.

All dates and times should be entered according to the local time for your site (not the local time on your device).

IMPORTANT: To avoid accidentally streaming content that was produced for another service, it's important to set the correct start and end time. For details about how live content is delivered to your site, see the following article:


Title and Description

Under Title, enter the name for the video show. Under Description, enter a brief description of the show.

This data will be visible on various pages across the public site (for example, on the live page and broadcast schedule page).


Teaser image

Under Teaser image, select artwork that will be associated with the video show.

NOTE: Before you can select your chosen image, the image needs to be uploaded to CMS. For instructions, see the following article:

The image will be visible on various pages across the public site (for example, on the live page and broadcast schedule page).

If you tick the box next to Use teaser image as poster in the player, the selected Teaser image will be visible in the video player before the video plays.


Categories

Under Categories, it is required to assign the video show to at least one Category.

If the show is recorded, the recorded video will be listed on the Category page for each selected Category.


Hide from site

If you tick Hide from site, the video show will not be visible on the public site. It will not be listed on the broadcast schedule and it will not stream to the site at the scheduled start time.

This option lets sites create shows that stream only to social media.



Record a video show

IMPORTANT: To ensure that the video show is successfully recorded, it's important to enable this option at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time.

If you tick Record, the video show will be recorded. After the video show ends, the recording will be saved and available in CMS as a video.

You will be able to find the recorded video using search in CMS. For details, see the following article:

Under Record as, select your preferred option:

  • Draft: The recorded video will be assigned the Draft status (you will need to publish it manually).
  • Edited: The recorded video will be assigned the Edited status (you will need to publish it manually).
  • Published: The recorded video will be assigned the Published status (it will be published automatically).

Selecting Draft or Edited, gives you the chance to update the metadata (title, introduction, etc.) before publishing the video.



Stream to social media

If automated streaming to social media is enabled for the tube, you see the Multimedia distribution section.

Under Multimedia distribution, you can select a maximum of one YouTube and one Facebook account. At the scheduled start time, the video show will stream automatically to the selected social media account(s). For detailed information, see the following article:



Update Scheduler

When you make changes in Template week, your changes are not immediately visible in Scheduler or on the public site. Scheduler is automatically updated on a regular basis with the latest data from Template week. You can also update Scheduler manually. For details, see the following article:
