Program the right vibe for your brand with any of our expertly curated playlists. Below you'll find the necessary tools to learn how to set up your Station.
Find the right playlist
Browse by genre
While on the Rockbot dashboard via rockbot.com, you can search for playlists by your favorite genre. Simply, navigate to Music icon on the left side of the dashboard. When there, click on Add Playlist button for the station that you will be updating. A pop-up will appear with a selection of your favorite genres. Once you select a genre, a list of Rockbot curated playlists within that genre will appear. Click on the playlist then either select preview, add it to your Station or the back button to search for more. You can add as many playlists as you'd like to your stations.
Browse by categories
Rockbot has made selecting playlists that much easier with categories. While you are selecting a playlist for your station, you will see categories such as Popular at Venues Like Yours or Upbeat and Energetic. These categories are aimed at helping you easily select a playlist that has been proven to work at venues in your vertical or in venues that tend to have the same energy level as yours. Click on a playlist then either select preview, add it to your Station or the back button to search for more.
Search for playlists
While you are in the Add Playlist pop-up, click on the magnifying glass icon on the right-hand side of the pop-up. Type in a playlist, artists, song or genres to see relevant playlists. Click on the playlist then either select preview, add it to your Station or the back button to search for more.
Create your own playlists
By navigating to the Your Music section of the Add Playlist pop-up, click on the Create Playlist button and follow the on-screen instructions. Going forward, Your Music section will include any playlists you have created.
You can preview any playlist on Rockbot by drilling down on the playlist and selecting the Preview button. You will hear brief clips of songs within the playlist to ensure it fits the vibe you are trying to create within your venue.
Editing your station
Setting playlist hours
While in the Your Stations section, you will see all of the playlists you have selected. If a playlist needs to play at a certain time of day, click on the Set Times button within the station. You will see all playlists scheduled for that station and you can toggle the times each one plays. Please note that you will want at least one playlist to play all day.
Updating playlist priority
Rockbot defaults all playlists to a normal priority, however, you may want one playlist to play more (or less) often. To prioritize a playlist, select the priority on the right hand of the playlist and change to Play Songs More Frequently or Play Songs Less Frequently.
Creating a new Station
Your daily mix of music is dictated by the Station set to run that day. If you need to create a different musical vibe for a particular day (or days) of the week, you can simply create a new station. By clicking on the settings wheel icon on Default Station, you will be able to select Create New Station from the pop-up screen or Browse Existing Stations. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete setup. Once you have setup your new Station, you'll want to click on new Station's gear icon to schedule it to play.
Browse existing stations
At the top bar of the Music section, you can toggle between all stations you have created. You will easily be able to see which stations play on which days and the playlists that populated those stations.
