Calendar Snapshot

CARMA allows you to automatically schedule any gallery or video content for addition to your sites. You can do so by using the Gallery Content Admin or Video Content Admin, depending on what type of content you wish to schedule. In the Content Admins, find the content set you with to schedule, and click the "Publish Gal./Set on specific times at specific times" action icon, marked by a clipboard with check marks.

On the next page, you will see a Gallery Details box with information about the content set you are on, as well as a "Current Gallery Rule(s)" list and "Add New Gallery Rule" fields. The Gallery Details section provides you with the content set's caption, description, and date it was added.

Scheduling Content

On the Manage Gal/Video page, you will be able to schedule content to be added by using the "Add New Gallery Rule" fields. To do so, simply select the site/site section you wish to add content to from the first drop-down menu. You can then set the date you want the content added to your site, as well as the day you want it to be removed. These dates can be set as numbers (yyyy-mm-dd) or expressed as a freeform date, such as now and forever. Using forever as the "Until Date" will leave the specified content set up until you manually remove it.

Adding a New Gallery Rule in CARMA

The "Current Gallery Rule(s)" list provides a list of currently scheduled content for your site, and allows you to edit any currently existing rules/content set schedules. To edit your content set's schedule, click the "Edit" action icon on the right-hand side of the page. You can then use the same steps as adding a new gallery rule to edit your current gallery rules.

To change the scheduled removal date, click the "Edit" action icon and change the "Until Date" to whatever you choose. You can immediately remove content from your site by either clearing all of the available fields, or clicking the "Delete" action icon next to a rule that causes your content set to currently be displayed.
