Intro to Scheduling a Campaign in a Channel
In this Article we will review how to Schedule a Campaign to a Channel in ChannelsHD.
Once a Channel has been created, Campaigns will need to be added to create a set list of Campaign Slides for playback. Once a Channel has content, you can then schedule the Channel to a Device.
Additional scheduling tools are available in CCHD Apps. Playlists let you run multiple Channels; choose a master channel to run, and other channels can be scheduled as an exception. Using the Bulk Manager App, you can create and assign Attributes to a Device or Group of Devices. Then, you can deliver Campaigns specific to each Device, based on the assigned Attribute, with the Globalcast App.
