Disk format indicates the media format of the disk and is an optional field. If you disable it you prevent all DJs from using it.
Disk format can be useful in various ways including:
- DJs and music directors know where to find the disk (if it belongs to the station)
- Listeners can see what format was played which is often a useful hint that the disk may not be available in other formats
Disk format appears on the playlist entry form as a drop-down menu. Administrators can set up the menu items in Section 5 of the Station customization page.
Disabling this field (in Advanced configuration) has no significant negative consequences other than loss of this information and that it cannot be used as a search criterion or in report generation.
