Scheduling terminology

When updating Curate, we modified some of the scheduling terminology to make things easier. Now you can view all schedules for a single day on the same page with graphic indicators to easily identify the current state of each schedule. To familiarize yourself with the updated terminology, see the table below:

View schedules

You can view the dates of past and future schedules by clicking the textbox next to "Schedules for" in the upper left side of the collection page. Past and future schedule dates are shaded with grey. The current schedule is highlighted in blue.

Platform Filters

Search for shows and videos by the platform (All Platforms, PBS.org, Station Video Portal) to which they are assigned in Media Manager.  

If a show is set to "All Platforms" at the show level, but some assets are set to "PBS.org" or "Station Video Portal," use the filters to search for the assets that do not fall under the All Platforms category. 

  • In the Show search textbox, type the name of the show to which the asset(s) belongs (Figure 1.1).
  • Click Search (Figure 1.2).
