Here are quick steps to configure the system in a few simple steps:

How to Use DotSignage?

Console Setup:

i) Design:

To add designs, tap on ‘Create Design’ under the Design section. Add images, videos or interactive HTML into the console to create the design as per your need. You can define the time-period of playing each media file in seconds.

You can either upload new media or use a previously uploaded one. Any media (image or video) once uploaded is stored in the system and can be reused again.

ii) Playlist:

Create a playlist by tapping on ‘Create Playlist’ under the Playlist section. A playlist is created by adding a series of designs. You can add as many designs as you want under one playlist and define the sequence of playing it.

time interval between playlist

Enter the name and description of the playlist. If there is an HTML, define the time you want HTML to stay on screen. With our latest version, you can also define the time period of playing each playlist in seconds.

iii) Schedule:

Our system lets you schedule the playlist with the calendar view in two ways. You can have a regular scheduler or an event-based scheduler.

regular event scheduler

Regular Scheduler –With this kind of scheduler, the content will play on a weekly defined schedule.

E.g.: A restaurant can schedule its regular menus based on day times they are being used.

Event based scheduler – With this kind of scheduler, the content will play for specific time period only.
E.g.: Restaurants might decide to have a special menu on Halloween.

To add a digital signage schedule, tap on ‘Create Schedule’ under the Schedule section. Enter the name and description and tap on ‘Add Scheduler’. Select from ‘Regular’ or ‘Event’ based scheduler as per your need. Select the day from the calendar displayed.
