fusion signage 101:
let's learn the basics

It’s time to take the trickery out of tech. That’s why ours is easy.
So easy, in fact, that you can walk through the basics in this simple step-by-step guide.

natural navigation

You’ll find the navigation menu inside your Fusion Signage portal has been intuitively designed to be used the same way you’d enjoy an ice cream. From top to bottom.

dashboard

When you first login you’re shown your Dashboard for a quick overview of your digital signage network. Here you can view your total account storage and bandwidth (both accumulative with your licence count), how many licences you have and how many are currently online. You can also view your latest file uploads and some special news from your friendly Fusion Signage team.

manage

The Manage section is your go-to place to add, view and organise all your Media, Playlists and Schedules.

Media are the images, videos, websites, designs or templates that you want to display on your screen.

Playlists contain your media or even other playlists. 

Schedules allow you to choose the time of day, or day of the week to automate changing between different Playlists.

Now that we understand the basics of the Manage section, let’s start managing!

 Manage your Media, Playlists and Schedules all in one place

 Simply add Media, create a Playlist and Schedule it

manage: media

The first thing you want to do in Manage is upload your Media. You can add images, videos, websites, templates, RSS feeds and live streams. You’ll also want to start creating a folder structure that makes sense to you. Remember your folders can contain Media, Playlists and Schedules. Or you can separate them, it’s up to you!

Empowered tip: We recommend organising your folders by theme, occasion or campaign for easy retrieval. For example, Christmas, Branding or $5 Sanga Special. 

Add media assets (Support for images, videos, websites, templates, RSS feeds and live Facebook or YouTube streams)

Organise folder structure

manage: playlists

Now let’s add your media into a Playlist. Click +Add and select Playlist. Select your media to add, or drag and drop new media in. You now have a lot of freedom to set up and manage your playlist as suits you. You even have granular customisation. Think setting a schedule for an individual piece of media within your playlist (how clever!). Once you’re happy with your playlist, hit Save & Publish to assign it to a screen.

manage: schedules

The ability to schedule your content ahead of time is a key advantage of digital signage. This feature is available to our Advanced and Pro account holders. From within the Manage section click +Add and select Schedule. You’ll be shown a calendar view to set up your preferences.

Empowered tip: Use ‘Default Playlist’ to set a playlist that your screens will default to playing when nothing is scheduled.

deploy

Next, let’s navigate to Deploy. Here you can set which playlists are published on your devices, view important information such as their online and offline status’, and set offline email notifications.

From this tab, Advanced and Pro accounts also have the ability to group multiple screens together and update the content to all of them at once – a huge time saver!

settings

Within settings, you can edit your account details and security, plus edit users and permission groups. If you have an Advanced or Pro account, you can set up additional user permissions and tags to control what certain users can and can’t see.
