Use the Add TBD Program feature to make placeholders for programs that you want to schedule but do not actually have yet. For example, you might want to schedule the zoning board meeting to play several times over the next month, but the meeting won’t be recorded until tonight. Programming that has been scheduled but is not yet on the server is called “unattached content” and its thumbnail is a TBD. To make this placeholder for unattached content, click on the plus sign on the left side of the Content page. The Add TBD Program screen is displayed.
The information on the Show Content page of a TBD file is different because the content is not yet on the server. The page shows the placeholder’s expected properties.
Fill in the fields with information about the program.
To generate a regularly-scheduled Series of TBDs, follow these instructions.
When you have finished, click the Save button.
The Add TBD Program function does not capture or import the content. Use the Record tab or your installation’s encoding equipment to capture content. Use the Import feature on the Content tab to import content onto the TelVue server.
