1. Using the search function in your ScreenCloud account

ScreenCloud’s search function makes it easier to pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for in your account. It will automatically show results as you begin to type words into the search bar, in addition to quick tools for selected content and applying actions to search for key items. You can perform the following functions with the search feature per section in your ScreenCloud account:

 

i) Search using screens: search for screens using keywords to pull results for any tags, group, channel, or team data for screen(s) applicable from the search term.

Pro tip: selecting multiple screens while using the search function in the "Screens" section allows you to mass delete screens, switch all selected screens to use the same channel, move screens between groups, or used to cast any piece of media in your account to the selected screens immediately.

ii) Search using Media Library: use keywords and terms to search through items or tags in your Media Library. For example, searching for the word "Photo" in the Media Library populates any search terms for items with this name, folders, and tags for any media using this keyword.

2. How to use tags for quick searches and casting content with ScreenCloud

You can set any tags (e.g. keywords) you’d like for content, playlists, and even screens to quickly display and search for. Tagging provides you with easier content and screen management experience for being able to use alternate terms to easily find a screen, channel, and more within your account.

This is also useful for casting content immediately to your screen(s) in the event you may have multiple tags linked to a piece of content to start showcasing quickly across your digital screens. Learn more about how to use ScreenCloud's casting takeover feature by clicking here.

You can tag your screens with keywords using the following combinations:

  • Single-search term: for example, setting the tag as "Meetings".
  • Hashtags: for example, setting the tag as "#Meetings".
  • Using underscores for search terms: for example, setting the tag as "Monday_Meetings".

Enter your desired tags in any of the "Tag" sections available while navigating through your ScreenCloud account. This will help you while visiting sections of your account to find media more immediately with extra keywords being used to help identify your content.

 

i) Tag your screens: click on any of your screens and visit the "tags" section. Add any tag as you see fit as an additional keyword for your search terms. Press enter after typing your tag and it'll be applied automatically.
