Managing delays

Ontime provides mechanisms for managing and communicating runtime delays.
Namely: Added time, Scheduled delays and offsets.

Added time

You can add/remove time from the currently running event from the editor view or through one of the APIs.

This is the simplest form of time / delay management.
The added time affects the offset and expect end datasets.

Scheduled delays

You can add delay blocks to the rundown as with any other event.
This flow allows communication of schedule delays at runtime.

All the production and backstage views will see the schedule with the added delays, while the public views will remain with the original schedule.


The offset calculates our capacity to finish the schedule on time.
In combination with actual start and expected end datasets, it provides a good overview of the rundown schedule.
