Object Settings

The available settings for scheduling objects are situated here, in the main part of the Schedule dialog.

You should select an object from the list below to make the settings for it.

Date – defines the Start and/or Stop date. By default, the Start day is today. The Stop date is not mandatory.

Start by – defines the starting trigger. It could be a specific time, an event (for example GPI) or CMD.

Duration – defines the duration of the object appearance through

Loop – the number of loops. This field is active only for dynamic objects.

Stop Time – the stop time within the relevant day.

Duration – duration within the relevant day.

NOTE: This duration is different than the object’s duration, set in the project. You have to be very careful when you define different scheduling and object duration.

If the object duration is shorter, the object will disappear after its end, even if its schedule duration is not finished.

If the scheduling duration is shorter, the object will disappear after its end, even its own duration is longer.

Loop Until – defines a stop event for the object’s occurrence in the output (e.g., GPI trigger).

Type– defines the frequency of the object occurrence in the output – Once, Every day, Every week, Every month, or in a more sophisticated pattern, Advanced.

Cycling – defines the period for repetition of the object occurrence in the output in minutes. It is possible to define the termination of the object’s occurrence within the day  Until spin-box. Note that the latter spin-box is only active if you have defined a cycling period in the  Every spin-box.

Advanced – to get access to these settings, you have to click on the  Advanced button in the Type field. Here you can define a specific day of the week or a date for showing the object.
