Getting Started

1. To access the app, click on “Apps” > “All Apps”, then select “Zoning”.

2. If this is the first time you have used the Zoning app, you will immediately be prompted to build your layout when you open the app. 

If you have used Zoning before and want to create a new layout, select "Add Zoning Layout" or select the name of an existing layout to edit.

3. Name your Zoning layout at the bottom of the screen. This allows you to easily identify it later in the library list.

4. Choose your desired layout from the templates at the top of the screen. Be sure to use the correct layout for your portrait or landscape screen. For example, if you have a landscape Zoning configuration, you will only be able to apply it to a Display Group with a matching landscape orientation.

Layout Options

The default Zoning layouts are customizable. Once you choose a basic template from the top of the screen, it can be edited to fit your needs. Here's a basic summary of how the layouts are comprised:

  1. Each Layout is divided into Zones. These Zones contain Widgets, which are apps that fill the entire Zone. 
  2. The Main Zone is where the apps from your Dynamic App Playlist will rotate on the screen.
  3. The Main Zone can contain multiple Ticker(s), which are scrolling or static rows of data on your screen.
