In the newest version of Rockbot Music, the term 'Schedules' replace 'Stations'. If you used an older version of Rockbot, your existing Station(s) have been converted to Schedules.
A Schedule stores what music plays, and when, over the course of a single day. A Schedule can be as small as a single Playlist that goes all day, or different playlists for different times of day. You can also overlap them to add more depth to your music and avoid repetition.
Adding Playlists to your schedule is the fastest and easiest way to customize your sound. We recommend building a Default Schedule first as your base daily schedule, and then create different schedules as needed. This could be for different days of the week, weekday vs. weekend, or for weekly events such as trivia night.
The start and end times for your Schedule are based on the earliest start time and latest end time you have in your Music Hours.
If you manually start or music after (or before) hours (for a special event, for example), the system will play the most recent set music. A simple way to adjust for this is to use our Override your active playlists ability to set the mood.
If you only have a single schedule, your music will play from the same schedule every day. If you want more variety, you can create as many schedules as you want and change them based on days of the week, for special occasions, or for holidays.
When you create your second schedule, a left bar with a list of all available schedules will appear. Your active Schedule is indicated with a blue dot.
Select the schedule you want to edit by clicking on it from this list.
Once you have selected your schedule, you can control which is active on each day by setting the days in the bar on top.
