Commands are best entered directly into the clock/template rather than as a cart.

Traffic Merge

Natural Music: &&CMD=TRAFFICMERGE_20:00-24:00

Marker

Natural Music: &&CMD=SOFTMARKER_59:50

Specific UID

Natural Music: &&UID=1000 LegalID
Natural Log:  &&UID=1000 LegalID
Anything after a space in a command is not sent to PlayoutONE, so in the example above `LegalID` is just for reference only

Command

Natural Music: &&CMD=NAME_OF_COMMAND_OR_FRIENDLY_NAME
Natural Log: &&CMD=NAME_OF_COMMAND_OR_FRIENDLY_NAME

Chains

If you want to set the chain to be on a STOP for a specific item, make sure that in Natural Log / Natural Music the cart or command referenced ends with a $ sign. 

E.G. in PlayoutONE Cart 123 would be 123$ in Natural Log / Music. 

E.G. &&CMD=LEGALID$ would make the Command LegalID stop. 

You'll also need to turn on the setting within Auto Importer to look for Chain Codes under Options Tab, Traffic Log tab (it applies to both music and traffic logs)
