Users can now schedule when a stream will start and stop (Producer and Live Clipping Tool). This adds further benefits to the workflows, such as:

  • Cost management and confidence

  • Ability to plan upcoming future events

  • Give you the power to scale the operations without needing to add more resources

  • Improved security by allowing users to have access to stream at the requested time without needing Admin/Manager to intervene (to turn on), preventing errant use.

Overlapping schedules

Overlapping schedules are allowed in Grabyo where the start time will be the earliest time set on either of the schedules and the stop time will be the latest time set (on either of the schedules).

Example 1

In the above example, there is an overlapping schedule across schedules 1 and 2. Grabyo will start the stream at 17:00 (start of schedule 1) and turn off the stream at 19:00 (end of schedule 2). This will ignore the end of any schedule between these times.

Example 2

In this example, there is a longer schedule which runs from 15:30 to 20:30, which has overlapped schedules 1 and 2. Grabyo will start the stream at 15:30 (start of the longer schedule) and stop the stream at 20:30 (end of the longer schedule), ignoring any start or stop events from schedules 1 and 2.

πŸ“• Note: If a schedule is created within 15 mins of another schedule Grabyo will not turn the stream off between these times as a precaution. However, if the schedules are 15 minutes apart, Grabyo will turn the stream off 5 minutes after Schedule 1 and turn it on again 5 minutes before Schedule 2.
