The Category Manager

PlayoutONE supports as many categories as you want. There is no limit!

Note: If using an external music scheduler (such as MusicONE) then categories should be created and removed in the music scheduler and not via this method

Opening the Category Manager

To access the category manager, open the PlayoutONE Launcher then choose Category Manager

Adding a Category

To add a category, add its name in the category name box, choose a 3 digit unique code (if using Music Master) and then choose Add. 

Editing a Category

To edit the name of a category, double click on the category you wish to edit and you can then type in a new name for it. 

Removing a Category

To remove a category, highlight the category you wish to remove and then press the Trash icon


When using AutoDJ, the shuffle percentage is used to calculate when the category should be shuffled. The percentage denotes that when x% of songs have played in the category, shuffle it.

After you have finished making changes be sure to press the Save button
