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.
Thank you everyone for taking the time to vote and provide feedback!
This feature is something definitely needed, we 100% get that. As we speak, we are creating a huge library of Layout Templates that will allow most of you to use or customize a large number of Layouts, thus making this feature more important than ever! So, this is definitely coming, period.
We have created the technical roadmap and have started planning on that. The most tricky thing is how to provide this (definitely required) functionality without making the user experience convoluted and confuse newcomers. There are several ideas on the table; providing for “Slides” in Layouts, adding a new “Layout Sequence” menu right between Layouts and Schedules, or just allowing Layouts to be added to existing Playlists. We need to evaluation options when it comes to User Experience and decide. Feel free to provide feedback on that.
Overall, our current estimation is that this will be something that you will likely see in your account towards Q2-Q3 2021. Engineering got behind schedule, but we expect to be able to pull it through! Stay tuned!

Just enable adding layouts to a playlist ... simples ... we really need this. is there release date....
This feature is essential. Is there an expected date?
is this in there now? still need it
I still want to be able to add a layout to a playlist.
PING Yodeck Team: What's the status of this update? Are we still forecasting Q4 this year or has this rolled into 2021?
Adding my voice to everyone else here... the new layout functionality means we MUST be able to add layouts to playlists. Can we get an update?
Is this released?
Just echoing everyone else here. With the custom functionality you've added to Layouts you really MUST make it possible to add a layout to playlist. Now that the system has template functionality built in to layouts, you need to be able to create a layout using a template then add that template to a loop. No one is going to schedule ONE layout to run for five minutes if it's a COVID-19 template. You want that layout to be part of the loop!
This is exactly what I'm looking for as well. This would be a very big improvement and allow much more flexibility
Layouts to playlist! - Can you please fix so we can place different layouts to the playlist!? One layout can contain for an example, website, weather widget and a movie. This I want to show for say 20 sec and then change over to a completely different layout that could have a fullscreen video or what ever we desire to show. This would make things so much easier for all users to create more dynamic playlists with several layouts.

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
