All you need is to publish your campaign as "On Demand" and you will get a play icon on the player page that can trigger it. This can be used for sales or even emergency announcements. Learn how to use On Demand Campaigns!
Scheduling campaign to be played at a Specific Time
This is actually a Windows exclusive feature! Set the player working hours and the device will shutdown automatically as the day comes to an end. This is super handy as most TVs will also shut down as they have the energy saving mode. Don't forget you will need to turn it back on the next day! Learn more about setting player working hours!

From now on, reports will have a dedicated section! Click on your username on the top-right corner and then on “Reports”.
The new reporting section offers additional filtering and data aggregation options while providing precise proof of play to your clients!
