    Overrides & Advanced Options

    Advanced Options for Spotify

    Show Title (Override): Entering a title here will override the show title in this destination, compared to what is entered in Show Settings.

    Author (Override): Entering an Author here will override the show title in this destination, compared to what is entered in Show Settings.
