IMPORTANT: Over/Under and cue timers are in early access trials at the moment and not available to the general public yet.
If you would like to try these out, simply open a ticket and we would be more than happy to give you early access!
Over/under, countdown, and cue timers are a way for you to quickly determine if your show is on time or running late. Cue Manager makes it easy to determine which cues are running early or late, as well as the overall show. These times are shown 24 hours before the cue sheet’s starts at time and hidden after the ends at time.
In the upper right corner of the menu bar at the top of your cue sheet, you will see your end time, as well as your over/under time. The end time to the right of the finish flag and the over/under time is to the right of the down/up arrow. When you are running ahead of schedule, you will see a down arrow and the under time in green. When you are running behind schedule, you will see an up arrow and the over time in red.
Target vs Projected End Time #
Your target end time is the sum of all row durations added to the start time of the cue sheet, while the projected end time is the sum of all remaining row durations added to the current clock time, excluding the current row being called. While calling a show, the projected end time will be displayed, and your current remaining cues will be used to calculate and update the end time and over/under time. When you are not calling a show, the target end time will be displayed and used to calculate the over/under time.
In addition to over/under times, we also show you a countdown to the scheduled start time of the cue sheet. The countdown is shown when the current time is before the target end time if you are not calling cues and is located to the right of the hourglass in the upper right corner of the menu bar.
Cue Timers #
When calling cues, a counter will be displayed underneath a row’s duration in the duration column. This will count down from the duration time and start counting up when the timer reaches 00:00:00. When you are running ahead of schedule on any given cue, the counter is highlighted in blue. When you are running behind it is highlighted in red.
Recording Cue Calls #
If you would like to record your cue calls to view your called at times later, you will want to toggle the recording button in the upper right. When you are in record mode, a timestamp will be recorded for every cue you call and can be downloaded later on by going to your Cue Sheet > Menu > Export > Show Caller Records.
