A variety of posts can be created, which include video, image, article, link, poll, survey, and data.
Video posts are a very effective way of communicating with users. Whether you’re posting a fireside chat with the CEO, a tour of a new facility, or training content, videos always draw a lot of attention. Video posts can include local and external content such as MP4 files and Youtube videos.
When publishing video posts from the content management system, the video file size isn’t limited. However, it’s recommended that you keep your video file size as small as possible. Smaller videos are easier for users to play on their devices. Once your video is uploaded, it’s stored in the Media Library so that it can be used for other posts and messages on your digital signage player.
NOTE: When your video is first uploaded, the cover image will default to the first frame in the video. If you want to change it, you can do the one of the following:
- Select the thumbnail so that you can select an image from the Media Manager or drag and drop an image from your computer.
- Select a frame from the video by scrolling through it.
Image posts are the simplest type of post but the most visual. Up to 10 images can be included per image post.
Article posts should be used for longer featured pieces. You can use the What You See is What You Get (WYSISYG) editor to insert custom links, assets from the Media Manager such as PDF files, and resources.
Link posts should be used to share important external websites or intranet pages with users. To create a link post, all you need is the URL to the webpage that you want to share with your users. Once you enter the URL, the content management system will read the dynamic HTML to import a default image for you. You can change this image if necessary.
Poll posts should be used to create a single multiple choice poll that can be used to gather quick feedback from your users. Polls deliver instant results to both you and your users.
NOTE: Poll posts can only be created from the CMS. For more information, refer to Using the CMS to Create Posts.
Similar to poll posts, survey posts should be used to gather feedback from your users. Unlike poll posts, survey posts allow for more in depth questions and responses. Survey posts can contain multiple choice, true/false, numeric response, and open-ended questions. Responses can remain anonymous or be categorized by user. Survey posts can be re-used to collect new responses.
NOTE: Survey posts can only be created from the CMS. For more information, refer to Using the CMS to Create Posts.
Data posts are one of the most powerful features within the Korbyt Anywhere platform. You can use data adapters to integrate with applications throughout your corporate ecosystem. Once the connection is made, you can share data with your users by building a data post.
