Campaign Cloud Playlists are used for automatic central deployment of university wide and campus specific digital signage campaigns. Using these playlists for each of your digital signage devices are required to be deployed as part of the software license agreement (get-started/software-license.) University wide and campus specific digital signage campaign content will be managed by digital signage admins and UCM brand leaders. Through an approvals process, brand leaders will limit the combined total of ALL campaigns to 10 minutes of display time per hour. Individual campaign images are displayed ranging from 15-30 seconds each. If no cloud playlist is available for your specific campus, you are only required to display university-wide campaign cloud playlists.
Instructions for using Campaign Cloud Playlists
In Content Manager Web, navigate to the Content repository at the bottom of the page. At the top of the folder structure look for a folder named, “Auto Publishing Campaigns.”
Open the template of the sign(s) you intend to add the playlists to by clicking the '+' symbol.
Many users use a Content Manager Playlist to deploy the same content to many signs. You may also simply add the playlist to the main region of any template on individual signage.
Depending on the location of your campus and the orientation of your displays, choose the appropriate playlists for your display. In this example we are adding Bloomington and university wide playlists, both in landscape format. Click and drag the playlist to the main region of your template.
Once you’ve added both playlists, your template region will have the campaign cloud playlists and your own cloud playlist.
To modify the order of the playlist, simply drag any playlist to the main region and it will now be at the top of the order.
In order to maintain a proper balance of display time between your own content, you may drag multiple instances of your playlist(s) to the same region.
The last step is to deploy your sign(s). Once those playlists have been deployed your signs will now display campaign content automatically without any further action needed on your part.
Additional "Opt-in" campaigns cloud playlists are also available, but are not required under the software license agreement. These campaigns still go through the approvals and quality assurance processes based on current university priorities and existing allocations and should be considered worthy of deployment.
