Creating an emission


Jump to: navigation, search



Compose a playlist and schedule it.


An emission is an instance of a show and consists of a playlist, tags and additional information. While composing an effective playlist is a major goal for every DJ, giving each emission a suitable own description should not be neglected, otherwise search engines will treat the description as spam and will not grant shows their deserved score.




A DJ wants to create a new emission of a show.


A show of which this emission is an instance has to exist. The user creating the emission has to have DJ privileges.

Main success scenario

  3. The DJ tags and describes the emission. Manually entered tags include music genre and guest DJs names.
  4. The DJ composes a playlist (see use case: composing a playlist)
  5. Once the emission is ready, it has to be explicitly tagged as finished, before being scheduled.
  6. The DJ schedules the emission for her show. The emission is the automatically tagged with date and number.
