Approximate "next" time for empty singer

Post by B-Side »

Since I run a show with "empty singers", can you add a feature to set the approximate time for each [0] singer so the queue time will be more accurate for when a singer will come up next? I'm also trying to show empty singers in the remote access because I did notice that if some singers don't have a song put up, they're not shown in the "current queue"

Thank you for adding the other features so quickly!!

I realize a potential issue with regards to the "show ending" portion if the program is not specified to end after X amount of singers. So perhaps treat each empty singer as if they only have 1 song in the queue until a new rotation begins even if other singers have multiple songs queued up?

We will put some thought to it when working on the next upgrade, as it needs some additional customization (eg. what time to add for empty singers).

A good default for my shows is about 4:30 per song. But allowing the host to write in their own time should be helpful.

Wanted to see if this was still being worked on. Alternatively and additionally, adding the ability to write at the top of the queue screen to say *this is an approximate time* would be just as effective.

This feature will be available in the next release (September for sure).

Is it possible to add an asterisk or something to indicate a new singer for the session on the remote queue screen? It would help with being transparent about where and why I place new singers. Thanks!

Since it's no longer September, what's the ETA on this release? Is there a beta I can test?

I really want to test this feature out. I'm sure there's some kinks you're still working on to make sure everything else is working as intended but the time frame isn't adding up :lol:
