Scheduler allows you to make once-off or recurring recordings of your live stream which will populate new items in your library. You can add these items to a feed in order to create a podcast or embed it on your site for listeners to listen to on-demand.

If you are an Aiir Customer, or have an automated EPG JSON, speak to a member of our support team about integrating your programme schedule into Timbre.

Event Scheduling/Publishing Properties

Event Type

This can be One-Off or Recurring. One-Off is applicable to special broadcasts or events that may be happening on your stream. Recurring is tailored towards automating recording for regular shows (daily or weekly).

Event Start/End

The start/end date and time of your first scheduled recording.*

Frequency (Recurring events only) 

This is where you set the recurrence of the recording, It will take the time information of your first recording and apply it to a daily or weekly schedule.

If you select weekly, then you can select particular days you would like the recording to run, based on the scheduling of the programme. (this is especially useful for shows that run through the weekdays but not weekends or vice versa) .

Recur from/Recur until (Recurring events only) 

Select a time period you would like these automated dates to run for. The scheduler will stop making recordings once the "recur until" date has passed.

Scheduled recordings whose recur until dates have expired will be marked as Complete in the Recurring Events tab.

Publish Delay (Recurring events only) 

You can delay the publishing of the content for x Days:Hours:Mins:Secs after the recording has finished. This is useful if you wish to audit the recorded Item before it is uploaded for on-demand listening to the public.

Publish Duration (Recurring events only) 

This decides how long an Item remains published after the Item has been recorded.

Publish Start/Stop (One-Off events only) 

If you have selected a One-Off event you simply have the option of adding a publish start-stop time.

*Event times are subject to the timezone your account is set to, you can change your timezone in Settings->Scheduler->Timezone.

Step 5: Click Save Event

You have now created a scheduled event. You can view the event details in your Scheduler List. Items created as a result of your recordings will appear in your items library once the recording is complete.
