Add the ability to place shows in a playlist
This would really be the icing on the cake, as far as flexibility is concerned.
For example, if I have a clock widget it is a set colour for the entire show, so if the background changes to a similar colour (and the widget's background is transparent), it becomes invisible.
Being able to add shows to a playlist would cure this, and enable other things that multiple layouts would bring.
We have devised a new approach to this feature request. We will be providing the ability to have multiple “Slides” per Layout. Right inside the Layout Editor, you will be able to add new empty “Slides”, essentially making Layouts a kind of a “Slide” deck. You will be able to populate these Slides either by coping/pasting items from other Layouts, duplicate a whole Slide from the current Layout or another Layout, or import a Layout from our Templates.
We are currently completing an internal refactoring of our Playback Engine, so this will hopefully get released towards Q4-2020! Stay tuned!

Or at least a overlay for the playlist...
same here. would love to have different layouts in a playlist to loop..
It would be great if layouts could be included in playlists.
I have a situation where I would like to use one of the COVID layouts but at the moment, would have to schedule it to run.
Would be much better if a playlist could include my normal layout plus the COVID layout so that they run one after the other in an endless loop.
I think this is a must. The layout functionality is great and you can achieve some great looking results with it but without those then being available in a playlist is a waste. As Reid stated this would be a much more flexible approach.
I'd like to be able to insert layouts inside of my playlists just like I can put other playlists into each other.
Without the ability to repeat my media/layouts/playlists every few minutes rather than only per day in a schedule, it is very time consuming to change all 150 playlist instances to a layout. I will do this 30 times because I have 30 schedules. If I can simply drag a layout into my playlist that already repeats 150 times in each of my 30 schedules, all of the work is done for me.
Though you are working on adding slides to layouts, that does not change the flexibility relating to playlists. Based on my last suggestion that became pretty popular regarding votes, I am surprised you have not made this change yet.
I have just entered the yodock world - and I must admit that I'm surprised, that it's not possible to add layouts to playlists? That way I have to use the same layout throughout my "show". Making slides with custom layouts should be a core feature.. Unless I want to schedule different layouts minutely throughout the day, which I definitely do not want to do.
Has there been any progress on this to add Layouts (previously Shows) to Playlists? Or the option to schedule multiple layouts to push to a monitor?
ie. layout 1, then layout 2, then back to layout 1 all day?
Hey, any update on this? figured this was possible when I purchased 5 players.
Might need to switch platforms if this truly isn't doable.
Yes, please provide this feature! Otherwise you could just add an hourly and minutely interval to your scheduler!
Nice idea. I hope it'll be implemented soon
Please either make this happen or find a way in scheduler to more easily flip between shows without having to program an entire day of tiny edits. Thanks!
Id like to playlist shows AND webpages so I can flick between a standard show and a fullscreen web-page for advanced weather information or other site.
The ability to loop a specific shows throughout the day.
What's the status of this? It would be extremely useful if you could drop a show into a playlist. Making slides with custom layouts should be a core feature.
Yes, in piSignage you can setup your multi item layouts in playlists and have playlists follow each other on continuous loop. I REALLY need this option sooner than later to make Yodeck do what I need to do... and the idea of doing it via schedules on loop of around 2 minutes is too scary to think about.... that’s going to take forever to schedule!!
Playlist of Shows
This would be an awesome idea! We would like to do a full-screen "splash" followed by a typical digital signage layout with 1/4 & 1/2 screens. Basically add a full-screen image/Playlist within a show.
One should be able to make a playlist of different shows/layouts in "playlists".
