Plan the week in advance to make sure the right music plays when and where it should. Drag and drop playlists into the schedule to meet business hours, expected rush times, holidays, and more, down to the quarter-hour.
By planning your music throughout the day you can fine-tune your customer experience. For instance, a restaurant owner wants to start off with a relaxing breakfast atmosphere and increase the tempo by the time happy hour begins.
1. Create a schedule
Go to Your Music in the top menu, and click on Schedules. Click on Create schedule and give your new schedule a name.
2. Schedule your music
You can find suggested content and already saved playlists and stations to the left of the schedule. Drag-and-drop your playlists or stations to the day and time when you want it to play. Remember to schedule the music so that it covers your opening hours. Remove a playlist or station from the schedule by clicking on the slot and then the minus (-) symbol next to its name.
3. Save your schedule
Remember to save your schedule and press play to listen at your zone right away - click here if you are unsure on how to select and play music to your zone. All your schedules will be available in Your Music, in the Schedules section.
4. Select and play a schedule
You can now play your schedule in one, several, or all zones by clicking into the schedule itself, and choosing the red button 'play' in the top right corner. Select the zones you wish to play the schedule in and click play again. Your schedule will begin playing after the current track.
Good to know
It's possible to mix stations and playlists in the same time slot, thus creating more variation. A song from each will be played in a shuffled sequence and if you wish to change the order, simply click on the given time slot and drag the names of the playlists or stations in your preferred order.
The scheduling tool lets you schedule music for a week. Once it has played the full week, it will start over again. If you want to play different music during different weeks, we suggest you create several schedules to alternate between.
Please note that the scheduling feature is not available if you use the Sonos player. Alternatively, you can use AirPlay 2 and the Soundtrack Player app from an iOS Device instead of the regular Sonos app. This way, the sound from the iOs will be directly streamed to all Sonos speakers.
