Emerald Content Management

Pairing a Display or Zone

Upon logging in for the first time, you will need to pair your display and assign it some content. There are example assets and playlists (playlists are collections of assets) you can begin with.

You can continue pairing more displays, or move on to content management.

Content Management

Emerald has Assets, Playlists and Schedules that can all be assigned to your Displays or Zones.

Displays or Zones in Userful all appear and are managed as Screens in Emerald.

Assets are customizeable web apps, images, videos, or documents. Each asset shows one piece of content at a time - the exception is the Split Screen app that displays multiple existing Assets.

Creating a new Asset

Assets can be edited or new ones made.

Playlists are sequences of Assets that play in sequence, using timing and transitions that you specify.

Creating a new Playlist

A Schedule allows you to set specific play schedules and apply them to Assets or Playlists.

Creating a basic repeating Scheduled event

Once you have created your Asset, Playlist, or Schedule, you can Edit the relevant Screen to assign it to that content.

You can also Preview the content in a new tab in your own browser from the Screens menu.
