 In a typical radio station environment,​ playlists for the next day(s) are generated manually from the Database application in advanced. For 24/7 unattended stations, you may choose to have the playoust process generate the playlists automatically. This is done by using the //Generate playlists// action in the Event Manager, either in another event (that runs a couple of minutes before the load/append event), or as another action inside the load/append event (take care of the correct order of actions - generate must happen first). By default, the //Generate Playlists// action will not overwrite existing playlists; so you can safely set it up as a "​fallback"​ event, even if you plan to schedule manually in the general case. In a typical radio station environment,​ playlists for the next day(s) are generated manually from the Database application in advanced.
