Playlists are a powerful feature that enables you to run parts in the sequence of your choice. This enables simple use cases like running a single part repeatedly or a more advanced use case where you can run multiple parts sequentially.

Note: Modifications to a playlist can only happen when the robot is in a Stopped state

Let's get started!

Running a single part

When only a single part is on a playlist, each time the program is played it will run the same part.

Here is the execution flow showing what happens each time Play is pressed by the operator

Play -> Part 1

Play -> Part 1

Part 1 will continue playing until you choose to modify your playlist

Running multiple parts

Let's say you have a two table setup and you would like to run a part on the A side while setting up the next part on the B side. Sounds hard, right? With a Playlist it doesn't have to be. We can easily accomplish this by adding more than one part to your playlist.

Example: A side / B side

After hitting play for the first time, the Up Next indicator will move to the next part in the playlist

Here is the execution flow showing what happens each time the operator hits Play

Play -> Part 1 - A Side

Play -> Part 1 - B Side

Play -> Part 1 - A Side

Play -> Part 1 - B Side

Each time Play is pressed it will move to the next part. Once we reach the end it will start back from the top.
