How to Clone Hours in a Log posted on August 18th, 2014

By Aaron Taylor

If you’re using MusicMaster Version 5.0 or later, you have the ability to clone portions of a scheduled log into another part of the day or other days entirely. This allows you very easily to reuse already scheduled content with very little effort, perhaps a countdown show, or a special feature or hours that might be time consuming to recreate “by hand”.

The Old Way: Copying Manually

You can still use the old method to copy a portion of the log to another day.  Start by manually copying the items you wanted, first by clicking the CTRL key on your keyboard along with the left button on your mouse and selecting each item by clicking on the grey square in the pointer column.

You will get a notification box confirming you would like to delete the currently selected (scheduled) elements.

The New Way: Clone Hours

Go to the context menu to access this option (DATASET-SCHEDULE-CLONE HOURS):

clonehours6You then will select the start and end hour to copy from, and the start hour to copy to.

One side note, if there are any locked elements in the copy from or to part of this operation, the process will not continue and will indicate:

clonehours7Any elements in the destination hours will be replaced with a copy of the elements in the source period.
