How do I change my messages in the Message Manager?

Follow

So now that you have been given access to change the messages that are displaying on the screens, you are ready to login to your account and begin updating or editing the text that is being displayed within your tickers, menu boards, meeting room schedules or however your content is being displayed to show information at this point.

Obviously the first step is to login to your Message Manager account, so to begin if you could ensure you have logged in to the feature via the URL https://login.signagelive.com and then you can begin learning about how to edit your content.

I'm on the Main Page, what do I do first?

When you are logged in you will be on the main Message Manager page and will be able to see all of the feeds that you have access to. In terms of the the feeds that are shown, there are two types that you will become familiar with editing and these are:

Text Only Feeds

A text only feed is a feed that will be appearing on a scrolling ticker that is placed within an RSS Zone on your scheduled layout. When working with this feed you are just changing the text words that are shown on a single line basis.

Media Feeds

Media Feeds are simply Media RSS feeds, so tis type within the Message Manager allows you to see the graphics that your text will be appearing over. The Administrator of the main network that looks after your Message Manager will have created a custom RSS feed which includes media items and pre-defined areas where the text you can edit will be shown. The Administrator will also have pre-selected the type of font, its size and colour as well and so you cannot change any of this type of element.

So now that you know what the different types of feeds are within your account, it is time that you learnt how you can edit these. Please find the relevant sections below and follow any steps provided to teach you how to use the system.
