Rotation of Advert Tracks
Great software but was thinking would be great if you could select track groups to rotate tracks so that advert breaks have equal plays during say a 24 hr period.

I think it would be good to have this so you can select on certain track groups to play them in sequential order, not random, then the advert group can go sequentially

I think this comes closest to the request I was about to submit. We don't have ad breaks as such but do carry promo's for shows. Today I lost a show to dead air so went to the default playlist, which picks up a random promo from a track group. The same promo played three times running... Something as simple as 'do not play if this played in the last 60 minutes' or similar would be welcome. Ideally applied to a track group (adverts/promos) rather than needing to tag each entry in that group.

Hi Gordon You can achieve this through a Playout Policy applied to only your Promos track group and set it to not repeat the same track for 60 minutes.
