Create interactive Campaigns

Let your customers fully engage with the screens by creating interactive Campaigns.

*AVAILABLE ONLY FOR SELECTED PLANS!

This feature turns screen areas clickable, revealing hidden content or leading to another Campaign. By adding interactivity, clients are able to explore the Campaign’s content as they want, in the order they want it.

There are several ways of employing interactivity on Campaigns. In a restaurant, for instance, a promotion ad banner can lead to further details – price, conditions, frequency and so on – on the main screen area.

    • What: Define what the audience has to do in order to reveal the content. It can be either touching the screen or pressing a key.
    • Which one: Specify which region of the screen layout the person needs to click to trigger the action. If you choose to trigger the campaign by pressing a key, define which key will do it.
    • Action: Define what is going to happen when the person interacts with the screen. You can either play another Campaign or replace a screen zone with another media item. In both cases, you need to choose a destination.
    • Important: In case you choose to play another Campaign, there is no need to publish it to the player as it will be downloaded automatically.

    • Destination: For "Replace", set where on screen the file will be shown after the user touches the screen ("Region 2", for instance). For the Action "Play", choose which Campaign will play next.
    • When playing: This field works as a filter for the Action. If you keep “any media”, anytime you click the defined screen area, the Action will be carried out (a Campaign will play back or a file will appear on the area you set as Destination). Change this field if you want the action to be performed just when a specific media is playing.
    • With media: select the file which should appear at the Destination you set after the interaction. You can choose any media format.
