How to manage Campaigns in Playlists

Manage Campaigns in Playlists and simplify content publishing.

Playlists are a tool available on the OnSign TV platform to easily manage Campaign playback orders, keep control of total playback length and also publish lots of content to several Playlists with few clicks of a button. You can learn how to create Playlists in this tutorial.

In case you want to get better in your signage operation, take a look at these features available for managing Campaigns in Playlists:

Multiply Campaigns

A Playlist works as follows: you drag Campaigns from the browser box on the left to your Playlist loop on the right. You will build the playback order with those Campaigns, but it may happen that you want some Campaigns to be shown more often than others.

Instead of constantly dragging and dropping the same Campaign into the loop, you can simply make several copies of it.

  1. Drag the Campaign to the Playlist loop.
  2. Place the mouse over the Campaign thumbnail.
  3. Click on the "duplicate" icon.
  4. Indicate how many copies of the Campaign you want to create.
  5. Click “Duplicate Item”.

All new copies will be placed at the end of the loop.

Delete Campaigns

For deleting Campaigns, you need to click the “Remove Item” icon on the Campaign thumbnail. It is possible, though, to delete all appearances of the same Campaign faster:

  1. Place the mouse over the desired Campaign.
  2. Click “Remove item”.
  3. Do this once again for the same Campaign. If you delete a different Campaign in between, this function won’t work.
  4. A dialog should pop up on screen requesting if you would like to remove all copies of this item. “Confirm”.
  5. The Campaign is no longer in your Playlist loop.

Apply restrictions to all of the Campaign's copies

Within a Playlist it is also possible to define time, place and tag restrictions to Campaigns one by one. If you want to apply the same restriction to all copies of the Campaign, do the following:

  1. Place the mouse over the Campaign thumbnail.
  2. Click on the “Edit Restriction” icon (clock).
  3. Click on “Add Restrictions” and fill the settings as desired, and at last click “Ok”.
  4. Hit “Apply to All X Copies”.

Use the same button when you want to add more restrictions or remove them for all copies.

Move a Campaign

Imagine you have a 100 Campaign Playlist. That requires to scroll-down a couple of times to reach the end! How do you place the last Campaign on the third position more easily?

  1. Place the mouse over the Campaign thumbnail.
  2. Click the “Move Item” icon.
  3. On the new window, you will be requested the Position to which you want this campaign placed. It also indicates which campaign is going to be moved one position further.
