      NOTE: Default playlists/slides will continue to play throughout the day unless a playlist or slide is added to a specific time slot.

      TIP:

      1. When adding playlists to the scheduler, you do not need to add the same playlist to each time slot. If you add a playlist to the 6am slot on Monday and another playlist in the 12pm slot on the same day. The 6am playlist will continue to play up until 12pm.
      2. You can add multiple playlists to a half hour time slot.

KEY INFO: The default time between syncs is 5 minutes. All saved changes will appear on your digital signage when a full sync has run.
