Message Ticker

To enable this feature, go to Dashboard > Digital Signage > Frame > Default template and select Frame with Ticker. Then for the next option, Ticker source, select Messages.

The Message Ticker shows messages that are typically also shown on the Messages tab of your app.

To add a message:

In the Message's SHOW/HIDE/SHARE section, there are Show in App and Show on Digital Signage options. You can uncheck the latter to remove any items you don't want in the ticker.

In the Sender column, you can see who created each message. If it says "RSS", that means it came from a website post.

Displays

You won't often use the Displays page, which is for monitoring and setting up your Digital Signage displays.

To add a new display, see the installation guides above. Once the media player and display is set up, you should see an activation code on your display. On the Displays page, click Add, and then enter the activation code. Wait a few seconds, and then the display should start to show your slides.

Do you have specific slides to show at the gym, cafeteria, front desk, etc.? Refer to Assigning Slides to Specified Displays.

Monitoring Displays

If a display stops working or is accidentally turned off, you don't have to wait for someone to report the problem. You can be alerted. Please contact Support for updated instructions regarding Digital Signage Alerts.

Preview

This will give you a preview of what your displays will look like.

The Full Screen option will only give you an accurate preview if your screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio.
