Using Apps to Display a Data Feed

The whole purpose of creating and curating Data Feeds is to take advantage of its flexibility for presenting dynamic content on the signage screens.

 

Once your Data feed is set and ready to be used, you can present the data on any Data Feed compatible App.

 

Data Feed compatible Apps are marked as below and can be also found using the search box:

 

Important aspects to consider for using a Data Feed:

  • Only Data Feed compatible Apps can be used with Data Feeds
  • The App will skip the entire Data Feed Row in case a blank column field is assigned into an App field that is “Required”
  • Data Feed fields must be assigned to same type fields on the App
    • Exceptions to this rule are (Data feed Field -> App Field):
      • Integer -> Numbers
      • Data & Time -> Date
      • Date & Time -> Time
      • Image -> Media
      • Video -> Media
