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
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) .
*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.
If you wish to edit an existing scheduler event, view our Editing Scheduler Events help page.
If you wish to change the default publish duration or modify the global offset of your scheduled events (to account for any delay-to-stream) you can modify these values in your Timbre preferences. View "Timbre: Defaults Configuration / Set Timezone" for more information.
