How do I schedule content on my Channel(s)?

When your department was first onboarded to Appspace, we may have pre-scheduled a folder called "Shown" in your department's private library/folder, however more can be customized.

  1. From the Appspace Dashboard, open the menu and click on Channels
    Appspace Menu
  2. Click the Channel you wish to edit - Appspace presents us with all of the content that is currently scheduled on the channel
    Channel detail

    NOTE:  If you encounter a permissions issue regarding channels, please make sure you select your department's location from the dropdown next to the Quick Action menu.  To permanently set your home location to that of your department, please see the How do I set my Home Location in Appspace? article.

  3. There are two ways to schedule content to a channel:  direct allocation and folder allocation.  In the screenshot below, you can see that both are being used:
    1. Folder allocated items have the names of their folder under the name of the content item
    2. Direct allocated items show by the lack of a folder number underneath it (as shown with "Green Weather")
      Allocation Types
  4. To schedule new content

    2. The resulting menu gives you the option to create or upload new content or select from existing
    3. Click Browse Library.

  5. Hovering over a content item or folder reveals a circle that can be clicked to select that item for scheduling - once you have made your selections, click Add

  6. Appspace will process the selection and you will be returned to the "Edit" menu - your new content should be visible
  7. To remove an allocation:
