Add a new location for your new digital channel (Add-on Modules > Digital Signage > Settings / Locations tab).

Do you require an info bar? - If yes, follow these steps:

(ii)  Setup info bar module in the Editor

(ii)  Add info bar portal to your new location

Do the default screen sizes match your on-site digital channel screen/s? If not, add new screen sizes so you can preview slides at the correct resolution.

Create your digital channel content using the default templates.

Group your slides into playlists.

Did you assign a schedule to your new location in step 1? If not, add your playlists or slides to the weekly scheduler.

If you are creating a channel on behalf of a client, store/branch manager, etc they will require access to Contegro to edit digital channel content.


KEY INFO: Assign digital signage administrators to the 'Digital Signage' admin group only. This group excludes access to the 'Digital Signage > Settings' tab.
