      IMPORTANT: Use the 'Specific Dates' repeat setting to add multiple start times for your screen takeover throughout the same day and/or across multiple dates.
      1. 'Use base start time' toggle (enabled)
        When selected, the original start time will be applied to any dates you select. This is ideal if you want to run your livestream across multiple days at the same time.
      2. 'Use base start time' toggle (disabled)
        Select one or more additional dates/times to take over the screen. This is ideal if you want to rerun your livestream across multiple days at different times.

      NB: Check that your slide duration is set correctly and aligns to the screen takeover start and end times.
NB: Emergency (Full Screen) info bar alerts will take priority over an active slide screen takeover. However, the screen takeover setting in the slide editor will override playlist, schedule and standard information bar alert settings.
IMPORTANT - Your changes are autosaved.
  1. Once you set locations, your slide will be automatically injected into the selected screens/devices/webview at the exact time you've stated.
  2. You do not need to add this slide to a playlist or schedule to start publishing.
