Sweepers for Overlay Events

Hi,
I came across something, not sure if this has been addressed before. When creating an overlay event, it does not allow for a sweeper to play before it executes. For us, because of the way we process certain requests, it would be helpful. Enjoying the improvements in 6 so far, thanks!

Sweepers are only processed for regular events only, not for those that run as Overlay. If you need sweepers, I suppose disabling the overlay option should help.

I'm not sure how this is supposed to work with Overlay events. If you need sweepers, changing your event to not use the Overlay option seems like a reasonable solution.

@djsoft we run automation on top of RadioBOSS, there is a scenario like this:

RadioBOSS plays automated playlist via scheduler that includes long Mixes - 60minutes+

We have an interface that allows users to request songs to play straight into RadioBOSS

Users request songs during a "Mix" schedule, they play as overlay events so that the "Mix" continues after the overlay track.

We'd like to add sweepers into those overlay events.

Can you see the scenario/problem and any alternative suggestions @djsoft?
