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. 

Empowered tip: Take time to watch the mini tutorial videos as you go. We promise they are quick, to the point and helpful!

natural navigation

You’ll find the navigation menu inside your Fusion Signage portal has been intuitively designed to be used linearly from the top downwards.


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.

Next, let’s upload your content. In Media you can upload new assets (images, videos, websites, templates, RSS feeds and live streams). Plus organise your assets into identifiable folders. On the very right you’ll see an option for ‘Columns’ – here you can customise what information you would like to see.

Customise your view


Now let’s add your media into a Playlist. Navigate to the Playlists tab and click Add 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 such as setting a schedule to an individual piece of media within your playlist. Once you’re happy with your playlist, hit Publish to assign it to a screen.

The ability to schedule your content ahead of time is a massive advantage of digital signage. This feature is available to our Advanced and Pro account holders. Simply navigate to the Schedules tab, and click Add Schedule. 

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

Next, let’s navigate to Screens. Here you can set which playlists are published on which screens, 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!
