Create an engaging notification channel for your employees

Overview

Digital signage is a dynamic communication tool that uses digital displays, such as LED or LCD screens, to convey information, advertisements, and interactive content to a targeted audience, such as your employees. With the ability to remotely manage and update content in real time, it replaces traditional static signs and posters, offering versatility in displaying text, images, videos, live data feeds, and more.

Digital signage is widely used in various settings, including retail stores, corporate offices, and public spaces, enhancing engagement and delivering relevant information efficiently.


Digital Signage Tools

With MangoApps Digital Signage you can display recent company posts, alerts, and recognitions on any screen in your workplace. MangoApps Digital Signage continually cycles through the 50 most recent company posts, non-expired alerts, and/or recognitions to active users. ​Once enabled you can add your API Key and the system will generate a URL that you can enter in to your digital signage platform to display the selected content.

  1. Enable Digital Signage - Toggle this option ON to enable Digital Signage and reveal more menu options

  2. Select Format - Pick the preferred data format for your digital signage provider. MangoApps offers HTML and RSS. By default, MangoApps will return HTML format.

  3. Enter API key - The API key can be copied from Integrations > Open APIs. Any valid, enabled API key can be used here to complete the URL. For more information on Open APIs within the Integrations menu, click here. Note that the API permission level can be set to Read or Read and Write.

  4. URL - The URL that will return the recent, non-expired company alerts, non-archived company posts, and/or active user recognitions from your domain. Please be sure that the API key entered above is enabled.

If a user does not have the mobile app and scans the QR code, they will be directed to the app store to download the app.

  1. Include - Select the types of content you want to be included. Set limits per content type. Each selected content type will be ordered by recency and shown for 10 seconds each. Expired alerts, archived posts and recognitions to de-activated users will NOT be included.

    • Content Types - Check the box(es) for the content type you would like included in your Digital Signage.

    • Limit - This option allows you to set the maximum number of items per category that will be displayed in the Digital Signage feed. You have the flexibility to set limits for each content type, ranging from as low as 5 items to a maximum of 50 items.

  2. Background Color - Use this setting to establish the background color for screens that do not feature full-size images. The recommended image size for a post being featured in the Digital Signage feed is 1250 x 773.

Once you have generated your URL and made your changes, make sure to SAVE!
