How to Schedule Slides in MetaSlider

If you want to schedule slides in MetaSlider, this feature is available in MetaSlider Pro.

In this guide, I’ll give you an introduction to scheduling slides. You can schedule slides to show or hide between certain days, on specific days of the week, or at times you choose.

In MetaSlider Pro, you will see a “Schedule” tab that allows to choose when to show each individual slide. To get started, click the “Schedule this slide” box, as in the image below:

There are three options available, as you can see in the image below:

  • Show slide: You can choose “From” and “To” dates.
  • Show on: You can select days of the week.
  • Daily constraint: You can choose the hours in each day.

Each slide can have it’s own individual scheduling options.

Scheduling options for a slider in MetaSlider

Show Slides Between Specific Dates

One option for scheduling slides is using “From” and “To” dates. In the image below, the slide will show from May 18 to May 31.

Show Slides on Specific Days of the Week

Another option for scheduling slides is using showing slides on certain days of the week. In the image below, the slide will show on weekends and be hidden during the week.

Show Slides at Specific Times

It’s possible to schedule MetaSlider slides to show only at certain times. In the image below, I have unchecked the “All day” box. If that box is checked, any time settings will be ignored.

The “From” and “until” time fields use the 24 hour clock to enter “17” if you want to choose 5pm in the afternoon.

If you check the “Show” box, the slides will show at these times. If you uncheck the “Show” box, the slides will hide at these times.

One thing to note is that these scheduling options use the time on your server. To confirm this time, hover over the clock in the bottom-right corner of your slide.
