How To Manage Metadata in Composer 2 Widgets

Apr 21, 2015

We’re pleased to announce that the newly redesigned Composer 2 widgets are now available and live! The redesign project focused mainly on the Playlist widget, but the Daily and Now Playing widgets got a facelift with this release, too.

Stations will have the option to display additional metadata on a program-by-program or episode-by-episode basis. We have added a new controller in the Program page and the Episode page to select this metadata. Station Admins will have access to this controller automatically, and they will have the ability to grant access to the Episode controller to their hosts.

NPR Digital Services has prepared a detailed guide about how to configure metadata with these new tools.
