Create a playlist. Add some slides. Pair a screen. That's all there is to it.
Exclaim is built around playlists and screens. You can have an unlimited number of playlists, each containing an unlimited number of slides. When you add a screen, you can select a playlist that you want it to play. Use the same playlist for all of your screens, a different one for each, or any combination. Any changes you make to your playlist afterwards can quickly be deployed to any screens showing that playlist.
Playlists are your way of quickly organizing content. To create a playlist, click the 'New Playlist' button on your dashboard and give it a name.
At the top of your playlist screen, you'll see a few options for your playlist.
You can create a new slide by clicking the 'New Slide' button.
Select your slide type and how long you'd like it to display. From there, you'll be able to pick a theme for your messaging slides, define background images (or upload new ones), and enter any text you want to display. If you just want to show an image, you'll also have optional effects available for the image.
Once you have a few slides created, you can quickly reorder them with the icon from the playlist view, or temporarily turn them off with the icon.
Selecting 'screens' on your dashboard will allow you to quickly add new screens, see the status of existing screens, and change the playlist shown on a screen.
Click the 'add screen' button and give it a name. An authentication code will be provided that you can enter at exclaimsignage.com/display. You can also click the button if you want to launch the screen on your current device (if you want to cast it, for example). Before doing so, you'll need to pick one of your playlists that you want to assign to this screen.
