If you have any questions on supported hardware/operating systems or do not see your device listed in our hardware selector, please reach out to support@screencloud.com so we can help verify if your device can work with ScreenCloud.

 

2. Download the ScreenCloud app on your device

2.1. Once you have purchased your hardware, you can download the ScreenCloud app directly on your device. You can click here to view instructions for your device and how to download the ScreenCloud player to your respective device.

You can also try out ScreenCloud using your PC, macOS computer, smartphone, or tablet:

 

  • Windows OS: Download the ScreenCloud desktop player here
  • macOS: Download the ScreenCloud desktop player here
  • Android OS: Download the ScreenCloud app from the Google Play Store
  • iOS Device: Download the ScreenCloud app from the Apple Store

 

2.2. After downloading the ScreenCloud app on your device, open the app to view a pairing code that’ll be used to sync your screen with your account at https://studio.screencloud.com/screens.

3. Add screens

After downloading the ScreenCloud app on your device, the next step is to add a screen and use the pairing code displayed on your screen.

 

3.1. Make a note of the pairing code that’s appearing on your screen or device, this is used to add the screen into your account.

 

3.2. Visit the “Screens” section in the left-hand menu of your ScreenCloud account.

 

Screen_Shot_2020-07-16_at_3.42.41_PM.png

 

3.3. Click on the yellow “New Screen” button and enter your 6 character pairing code exactly how it appears on the screen.

 

 

3.4. If the code is correct, the window will re-load with information about your ScreenCloud player and to the right will provide you with options to set up the screen automatically. Please note, you’ll receive an error message is the code is incorrect.

 

3.5. Next, give your screen a name to keep track of easily.

 

 

3.6. You can also set up your screen into a group to help organize it for later. This is useful if you have multiple locations, segments, and departments that you’re using to manage different screens. You can choose to leave it ungrouped or create a new group from the drop-down menu.

 

Please note, you are charged per screen that is added to your account. If you’d like to test a screen-free of charge, make sure to check off the “Start screen in Trial Mode” option.

 

 

3.8. Click “Continue” and your screen will now be added into your account.

 

If you click on “Screens” from the left-hand navigation, you’ll be able to view a full list of all your screens connected to your account.

 

 

Next, you can get started on using ScreenCloud’s features for organizing and uploading content in your Media Library.

 

4. Media library

Media is where your content lives, organized like a dream.

 

4.1. Get started by uploading content into your “Media Library. In the left-hand sidebar, you’ll see the “Media” tab, click here.

 

You can upload files from your computer or by using our Filestack integration to pull in content from popular services, social media, and more.  

 

Screen_Shot_2020-07-16_at_3.43.58_PM.png

 

4.2. Click on the “Upload” button and you can get started on uploading your media. Click “Browse” to grab files from your computer or use third-party integrations to pull content into ScreenCloud.

 

 

You can also review information on supported file-types and how content is optimized in ScreenCloud by clicking here.

 

4.3. After uploading a piece of content, it’ll be available for use in your Media Library. You can view your content in either list or grid view by switching between the options available in the upper-right hand corner.

 

i) List View

 

 

ii) Grid View

 

 

4.4. To best organize your content, we recommend creating folders. Click the “New Folder” button in the upper-right hand corner and give your folder a name.

 

 

4.5. You can either drag and drop any of your content to the folder or hover all the way to the right of your media and click on the three horizontal dots to choose the “Move to” option to store it in any folder.

 

 

 

4.6. Next, you can click on any piece of content to configure it or review information on the file. These enhanced options are ideal if you’re working with users and teams in your ScreenCloud account, helping to better manage your content.

 

 

i) Details: rename a file, view the format of a file, see which user uploaded it, and the date it was added into your Media Library.

 

ii) Tags (optional): Use keywords or phrases to tag your content. This way you can find it easily, later on, to assign it to a screen, add it to a playlist, or find it quicker to use with our casting feature.

 

ii) Schedule (optional): set both an availability and expiration date for any piece of content.

 

An available date & time is when content can be selected for use, and expiration date & time will automatically remove content from being displayed on any of your screens for dates specified and to fully delete the media from your account.

 

Click on “Enable schedule” to start picking your dates.

 

 

Once you’ve scheduled an availability/expiration date for your piece of media, you will see a calendar icon that can be hovered over with your mouse that’ll display your scheduled date/time.

 

 

iii) Cast: instantly takeover one, or multiple, screens. Emergency notices, company announcements, a quick message - you choose it, ScreenCloud can cast it. To learn more about ScreenCloud's casting feature, click here.

 

Click on the “cast” button in the lower right-hand corner of your media options.

 

 

You’ll be prompted to select from a list of your screens and confirm which screens you’d like to cast the media on automatically. Click the yellow “Cast” button to confirm and the media will take over your screen(s) selected instantly.

 

 

iv) Download or delete: download any piece of content from within your Media Library using the downward-arrow icon or delete it by using the trash can icon. 

 

 

 

v) Favorited content: you can use the “starred” feature to favorite certain content by hovering over it with your mouse and clicking on the star icon.

 

 

5. Add apps

Browse and search through our diverse app store to start showcasing unique content on your digital screens. Most apps come with an app guide or video which walks you through step-by-step how to set it up. Click here for all apps how-tos.

 

5.1. In the left-hand sidebar, you will see the “Apps” tab, click here.

 

Screen_Shot_2020-07-16_at_3.44.58_PM.png

 

5.2. Click on the yellow “App Store” button to start browsing through our apps.

 

 

 

5.3. Simply click on any app and then press on the “Install App” button to add it into your Media Library.

 

 

5.4. Give your app a unique name so you can find it easily in your Media Library. Configure your settings for the app and then click the yellow “Save” button.

 

 

The app will be added to your installed apps. You can add an unlimited number of apps and as many instances of the same app as you’d like.

 

 

6. Add your links

Add links and webpages to display on your screens.

 

6.1. In the left-hand sidebar, you’ll see the “Links” tab, click here.  

 

6.2. You can start adding your websites by clicking on the “Create New Link” button.

 

Copy and paste the public URL for your website into the empty section provided, then click enter on your keyboard. You will see a preview of your website appear on the right-hand side.

Screen_Shot_2020-02-06_at_3.38.56_PM.png

 

Next, you can use two options here for adding your public website below.

 

Name your website: ScreenCloud will automatically pull the name of the website and page URL name. For example, Android News - Android Authority was automatically populated from the website we used. You can rename it to anything you see fit.

 

Tag your website: You can set keywords or phrases to tag your website and find it easily, later on, to assign it to a screen, use it in a playlist, or to cast across your screens.

 

Once you’ve finished setting up your website options, click on the yellow “Add Link” button to finish adding your site into ScreenCloud.

 

 

 

Please note, our team is currently working on an enterprise-type solution for displaying private and internal dashboards. This will give you the ability to display content that requires a login and/or is not accessible publicly to be displayed on your screens. For more information, please reach out to support@screencloud.com and specify the type of program you're using (e.g. PowerBi, Tableau, etc.) and how many screens approximately you're planning to use with the service. 

 

 

7. Create playlists

Playlists are used to organize your content and play everything in the order that you want to see it.

 

7.1. In the left-hand menu, press “Playlists” and click on “Create New Playlist.”

Please note, if you're having any trouble dragging and dropping any content into a Playlist it could be a web browser glitch. You can view more information on which web browsers to use with ScreenCloud by clicking here.

 

Pro tip: You can also create playlists directly from your “Media Library” by selecting a folder of content and using the three-horizontal dots setting menu to select “Create Playlist.” All of the content in that folder will be created into a playlist.

 

 

 

7.3. If you want to re-order the content in your playlist, simply grab it and drag it up or down.

Once your layout is selected, click the yellow “Select” button to assign it to your channel. [g]

 

You can now switch between the zone sections for your channel to set up content split on your screen.

 

For example with the Main + Left Bar zone layout chosen, you can switch between your zones by clicking the “Main” drop-down menu and select between the zones from your layout chosen to add content.

This feature can take over any content currently playing on screen, then resume your normal playlist once your casted content is scheduled to expire, or you can turn off the cast at any time.
