Viewing The Song Rotation Chart During Scheduling

In earlier versions of Music 1, if you wanted to see a song’s past rotation as you were scheduling and editing, you had to first double-click to open the Song Card. ¬†With the release of Version 7, we made it easier and more efficient to access and view.

Drag, Drop and Swap During Scheduling

It recently occurred to me that a lot of Music 1 users don’t know about this function. This short video is taken from a longer tutorial that was posted on the main website a couple of years back, but you may not have seen it before now and so you may not know about thisContinue Reading
