Switching Sign Content Temporarily for an Event (ScreenCloud)

Authors list

Here's how to switch your sign temporarily to another playlist, for example, for a special event.

Most departments are set up with a second "special event" playlist for this purpose. However, if you don't have one, or if you would like to create another playlist, you can do so under Playlists > New Playlist (button on top right). These instructions assume that you have already updated that playlist with content.

  1. Select Channels from the left menu
  2. Select the channel you would like to update with temporary content
  3. Select the Add Content button 
  4. Select the playlist you would like to display
  5. Click the "Everyday" section on your special playlist (see first image below)
  6. Toggle "Set as Priority" (see second image below)
  7. Publish your playlist

This will set your sign to ONLY display the special event playlist.

When your event is over, you can remove that playlist from your channel and re-publish.

In the "Everyday" section, you will also see the option to play this playlist only during a set time / date.
