How to create and schedule shows

Last Updated: Sep 10, 2014 02:44PM EEST

Show management and scheduling has two different flavours in Radiojar, depending on your role in the radio station. We'll examine these different scenarios in turn.

Show creation and scheduling for radio station administrators/owners

If you own a station and want to create a show for this station go the Management area of your radio station and click on the tab Shows.

From this page you can directly create a new show. This will not be attached to your personal profile, but will belong to the radio station. You will be able to assign other DJs to host it.
Click on the button Create to create a new show. Then fill in the form with the details of your show and save it.

The station’s show has been successfully created and you will be able to see it in the Shows tab. You can browse its management area as well if you click on it. 

In order for you to be able to broadcast your show you will need to schedule it. Click on the Schedule tab and click on the ‘Shows’ filter to be able to see only the shows of your station and not the pilots and playlists. Pick a slot inside the week schedule by clicking on its start time and dragging down to set its end time.

In the source dropdown select  ‘Your radio station’s name’ shows and select the show you have created and click Save.

The station’s show has been scheduled successfully. 

You can also set the show to have a repeating schedule. In the Repeats itself dropdown menu select e.g. ‘Weekdays’. Then pick a date when you want to it to stop repeating and then click Save.

You can see now your show being scheduled all weekdays (Monday till Friday) in the same time until the day you have set it to end.

How to join a station and schedule a show (for DJs)

You can have a show scheduled to a station only if you receive an invitation from the station to be one of their DJs or host one of their shows. Some radio stations may let you schedule your show into their schedule, and others might block all DJs from their program schedule. 
So in order to signup as a DJ in Radiojar you need an invitation from a station.
Once you receive an invitation from a station you will receive an email like this below:

Click on the link and you will be directed to this page to signup:
Complete the procedure to signup and click on the Signup and accept invitation button.
If you have been invited to host/co-host a show you will view this when signing in:

To schedule your show in the station which invited you can do it by the management section of your show.
Clicking on the show will take you to the management section of your show where you can schedule it, manage the content you want to broadcast, add other hosts and edit all the details of your show.
Click on the Schedules tab to add a new schedule for your show.
If there is no schedule setup from your station a popup will appear to add a new one. 
You need to define when your show will be scheduled. Set the date it starts, the time duration and if it will be a repeating schedule, specify when will it end.
In the following example the show is scheduled at 12:00 - 13:00  starting from 2014-06-24 and repeating all weekdays until 2014-08-21.
Be carefull to check the correct Timezone next to the 'Starts on' date selector.
Your show is now successfully scheduled to play on the date and time you have selected. 

Be sure to be online before your show starts to get prepared and start broadcasting. You'll find all the connection info on your homepage when you log in before your show starts.
