The Station ID Insertion feature is part of the Playlist Template Builder tool. The Playlist Template Builder enables you to create a basic Playlist Template that will, at playlist generation time, generate a playlist containing your radio station Station IDs or Spots.
Note: For an advanced approach to playlist generation containing Station IDs or Spots see the How to configure Scheduling & Logging section.
To find the Station ID insertion feature click the icon on the toolbar and click the Template Builder... button. The Station ID Insertions section is at the bottom of the Playlist Template Builder dialog box.
Create your Station ID (or Spots) album. We recommend that you compile an Ots Album file that contains your spot tracks using Ots Studio. This is not necessary but recommended for tidiness.
Create a Station ID category in the Media Library, see the How to create a new Category section if you are unfamiliar with creating categories. Give the category an identifying name like "Station ID" or "Spots".
Import and add your Station ID album to the Station ID category, see Importing Ots Album Files to the Media Library and How to add Albums to a category.
You are now ready to build a template that includes Station ID Insertion. For an example of this, click here.
