Digital Signage Overview
Through Digital Signage, staff are able to schedule content to be published directly to digital displays throughout the community. To do this, staff must have access to your community’s Team Hub (click here to learn how). Once you have confirmed access, follow the steps below to learn how to get started.
Digital Signage Tour
In the Digital Signage Manager of Team Hub, staff can easily view previously published content and publish new content from the Content Library all from one centrally managed location. To reach the Digital Signage Manager, select “Communications” followed by “Digital Signage” in Team Hub’s left navigation bar. Let’s take a look at the main components of the Digital Signage Manager.
Quickly sort or filter the Published Signage List based on your desired criteria. Staff can search by date, title, or by destination the content was published to. Destination refers to the locations of your community’s digital signage displays throughout the campus.
Additionally, staff are able to sort the Published Signage List by:
- Edited Date: Descending
- Edited Date: Ascending
- Name: A-Z
- Name: Z-A
The two main components of Digital Signage displays throughout your community are the media player provided by K4Connect, and the mounted TV display to which the media player is connected to via HDMI. To learn more about how to install a media player, check out the tutorial below.
