How to configure a Widget in a Playlist?

  1. Within your Signagelive network, please click on the Content menu and from the drop-down menu click on Playlists.
  2. You will now be in the Playlist Creator and if you search for "Clock" all of the available clocks will be displayed. You can easily create a folder, where you can add these for easy access.
  3. Please take a look at the library of widgets and then decide which you would like to add to the Playlist Timeline to begin creating a Playlist. As with any Playlist scheduling, when you are happy, simply drag and drop the selected widget assets to the timeline.
  4. When dropping a Widget asset on to your timeline you will notice that a Configure Widget window will appear, which gives you the ability to set the background colour of the widget. Please select whether you want to change the colour to be transparent or a solid colour, then when finished click on the OK button.
  5. When you've added your assets, make sure you save your Playlist by clicking on the green Save Playlist button and then ensure you give it an easy name to remember when you are at the publishing stage (and for future use).
  6. You are now ready to publish the content, so lets show you how you would now publish the Playlist.
