To optimise Timbre to suit your workflows, you can set custom default settings for your Feeds, Items, Quick Recordings, and Scheduler.

   

     Recording Defaults:

Preferences -> Other Settings -> Defaults Configuration -> Scheduler Defaults


Set the default time for any quick recordings you take from the dashboard or scheduler page.


Scheduler Templates/Defaults:

Templates:

Preferences -> Other Settings -> Manage Schedule Templates 


If you have set any templates for creating scheduled events (See Timbre Scheduler) you can view them and edit them here. To modify a template's defaults, click "Edit" next to its listing. This will take you to a new page where you can modify any of the default fields, when you are happy with your changes, click "Save Changes"

Scheduler Defaults:

Preferences -> Other Settings -> Defaults Configuration -> Scheduler Defaults


You can set offset times for your scheduled events here, this can be used to account for any lag or delay from your stream. (If you had a scheduled recording between 15:00 and 16:00, for example, an offset value of 1 minute would fire the recording from 15:01 to 16:01).


Feed Defaults:

Preferences -> Other Settings -> Defaults Configuration -> Feed Defaults


Set the default Feed owner name and email address to appear in your XML feeds. 


Item Defaults:

Preferences -> Other Settings -> Defaults Configuration -> Feed Defaults


Toggle the “downloadable” and “published” settings to change the default state of new items as specified (these settings can still be adjusted for individual Items).


Set the default copyright information for your items, this is reflected in an Item's metadata and XML feeds.


Timezone Selection:

Preferences -> Other Settings -> Defaults Configuration -> User Overrides


Select your timezone for scheduler and publishing activity (If this is not set, this value auto-defaults to your current location).
