By planning your music throughout the day you can fine-tune your customer experience. For instance, a restaurant owner wants to start off with a relaxing breakfast atmosphere and increase the tempo by the time happy hour begins.
Our scheduling tool lets you tailor the music to fit your business perfectly. Mix any of our soundtracks and playlists to adapt the music to your needs. Before you can create a schedule you need to have added music to your account.
Before you create a schedule
What to think about before you create a schedule:
- Let the length of the playlist reflect the time slot where you schedule it. For instance, if you schedule a playlist with 30 songs during a four-hour slot, you will experience a lot of song repetition.
- It's possible to schedule several playlists or soundtracks during the same time slot. A song from each will then be played in shuffle mode.
- The scheduling tool lets you schedule music for a week. Once it has played the full week, it will start over again. If you want to play different music during different weeks, we suggest you create several schedules to alternate between.
1. Create a schedule
Go to "Your Music", and click on "Schedules." Then click on the blue button where it says "Create Schedule" and give your new schedule a name.
2. Schedule your music
You can find your added music to the left of the schedule. Drag and drop a soundtrack or a playlist to a day and time when you want it to play. Remember to schedule the music so that it covers your opening hours.
Need to add more music? Just go to Discover Music to find soundtracks and playlists that you like. Learn more on how to add them to your account here.
You can create a sequence by placing several soundtracks or playlists in a one-time slot. A song from each will play in the order that the sequence is planned. Drag and drop the playlist or soundtrack in your sequence to change the order. Remove a playlist or soundtrack from a sequence by clicking on the minus (-) symbol next to its name.
Copy a scheduled time slot to the next day by holding ALT while dragging and dropping the planned music to the time slot where you want to copy it.
Schedule a soundtrack for the entire day by holding Shift while double-clicking on the soundtrack or playlist.
3. Save your schedule
Remember to "Save" the schedule and press "Close" when you're done.
4. Change music
Choose to play the schedule in your locations. Click on the play button on the schedule and select which locations you want to assign the schedule to.
You can choose if you want your schedule to start on a Monday, Saturday or Sunday. Click on the profile picture and open your personal setting, scroll down and change day under "Scheduling."
