Steps to Assign a Channel to a Display assign-channel-to-display

Follow the steps below to assign a channel to a display:

  1. Navigate to Screens Services Provider and select Displays from the left navigation panel.

  2. Click Assign Channel to the display.


  3. Populate the following fields from Assign a channel dialog box.


    1. Select the channel name from the drop-down.

    2. Choose the priority.

      note note
      Priority is used to order the assignments in case multiple ones match the playing criteria. The one with the highest value always takes precedence over lower values. For example, if there are two channels A and B. A has a priority of 1 and B has a priority of 2, then channel B is displayed, as it has a higher priority than A.
    3. Select the start date and end date from Activation.

  4. Click + Add recurrence to add a recurrence schedule for your channel.


    note note
    You can add multiple recurring schedules to your channel. Recurrence schedules introduce DayParting that lets you set a global schedule with multiple channels running at specific times of the day, and reuse that set up for all your displays at once.

    You can set the following options:

    • Name: Title of your recurrence schedule.
    • Repeat: Choose whether the schedule runs Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly.
    • Start: The start time for your schedule.
    • End: The ending time for your schedule. You can set it by time or duration.
    • Time: The schedule ends at a specified time.
    • Duration: The schedule runs for a particular duration of time in hours or minutes.
  5. Click Create. You can see that a channel is assigned for that display, as shown in the figure below.
