New Features

Reports filtered by tags!

Reporting tools are a core feature when you are managing advertisement on a large signage network. For this reason, our team has been working hard to always improve and automate the reporting process.
Now you can add an extra layer of filtering on reports based on campaign and player tags.

This feature gives you extra flexibility, as you don't have to remember, or restrict reporting to a given set of players or campaigns. Just to illustrate, you can create a tag called "Coca-Cola" and add this filter to your reports, so all past and future campaigns with this tag will be listed on your reports.
Learn How to Filter Reports by Tags
Not using Tags yet?
Tags are a powerful way to search and filter your players and campaigns. Take a look on some of the advantages of using tags: 
  • Quickly browse through campaigns: You may not remember a campaign name by heart, but if you use tags it will be easier to find it by narrowing down your search. Read tutorial
  • Smarter monitoring. You can also filter the number of devices monitored on player dashboard map using tags! Read tutorial
  • Restrict campaign playback based on tags: When you are publishing a new campaign, you can also restrict or limit playback to players that contain certain tags. Read tutorial

New Features

Add files to Playlist

This is a long time requested feature that is going to save you precious time. 
Now every time you want to add an image, video, or even App to your screen all you need is to simply drag it to an existing playlist!
What are the advantages?
  • No need to create campaign. Although campaign creation is super easy, repeatedly doing it for simple content might be bothersome on a large network. So just drag any media, or App into a playlist and they will be presented in full screen alongside your existing campaigns!
  • No need to publish it again. Once you add a new item to a pre-published playlist and save it, the updates are automatically propagated to the players!
Check out tutorial
Schedule reports
This is another super feature that all users will certainly benefit from!

Define in which frequency a report should be generated and literally forget about it! OnSign TV will notify you by email every time a new report is ready. Learn how to schedule reports! 

Mute devices

Audio can be smartly used on signage display, yet there are cases that silence communicate better. Mute your device and make sure no audio will be heard, no matter how you have configured the campaigns.
You can also mute a group of devices or even your entire network.
Consider this option if you use any of the following options:
  • Display signage on high traffic areas
  • Your screens are installed at an environment that should never have any audio like, e.g. a hospital.
  • You lost track of what media has audio, or not.
