From the Settings button you can change the Title of the Slide (1) and set a length of time the Slide stays on the Monitor (2). Then click on Save (3) to apply the changes.

Other changes that you can apply to your Slides are:
- Move them to decide the order in which they will be displayed
- Delete or move them from one Slider to another
- Choose whether or not to publish your Slides.
Click on Save to apply the changes made to your Slider.
In case you want to change the type of transition between one Slide and the other, just click on General in the toolbar.

To ensure that your schedule is displayed you will need to enable automatic playback. Click on Auto Play from the toolbar (1) and then on the Enable item (2). From Interval* field (3), you can set a time interval that will go from one slide to the next.
