Emerald Content Management

Pairing a Display or Zone

When you log-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.

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 customizable web apps, images, videos, or documents. Each asset shows one piece of content at a time, except for the Split Screen app that displays multiple existing assets.
Creating a new Asset
You can create and edit assets. Playlists play assets in a 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
After creating an 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.
