Composer 2 Rollout Underway

Oct 2, 2013

Composer 2, our entirely new program schedule and playlist product is already live with over sixty stations.  And station feedback from the launches so far has been tremendously helpful as we complete development and get all of our Composer Pro stations up and running.

Thanks to your participation, our updated approach to Composer 2 Migration is in full swing.  We're excited to launch our first cycle live in Composer 2 next week!  With this cycle, we're also happy to announce the launch of several new features.

During this sprint we have made the following updates:
•    edit start time and added flexibility in playlist entry
•    multi day import functionality
•    export ability
•    create and manage host accounts

See additional details below.
 

Calling all Composer Pro Users! We are excited to improve your schedule and playlist experience by upgrading your station to Composer 2 now.

Composer 2: Schedule & Playlist Widgets

May 28, 2013

Last month, we announced that Composer 2 was ready to start rolling out to stations and included some videos that show how Composer 2 works for station managers and hosts. In this post, we'll show you how to install widgets on your website that can display the schedules and playlists you enter in Composer 2 for listeners that visit your site.

The "widgets" section of Composer 2 creates live previews of the widgets we offer, along with some basic customization options and embed code.

The following updates were made to Core Publisher this week:

Station Analytics System

Core Publisher stations are now ready to move over to SAS tracking. We will be moving stations to SAS tracking over the next few days. Along with this comes some additional data in Google Analytics, namely author, tag, and keyword popularity. And much more to come. Stay tuned.
