Newbie question for scheduling welcome messages from a calendar
« on: February 03, 2018, 10:28:21 PM »
I am brand new to Digital Signage and we are looking for a solution for our mortgage branches.  Ideally we would like a display with stock ticker across the bottom, a couple windows displaying product info, testimonials, etc, and then a schedule of who is expected, the time of their appointment, and who they are meeting with.  The ideal scenario would be a shared calendar where our sales team could log in and enter their own appointments and have the system automatically update.  Is this possible with DigitalSignage software.  Is it easy to set up, or can I retain the services of a third party to help us set up our first display.

The second phase of this implementation is to roll out sign control on approximately 8 or 9 other displays around our primary branch.  two or three screens will share common display content and a few will be unique to themselves.

I am looking forward to responses here or you can text me at 702-521-3122 for a faster response if you are capable of doing this work and want to let me know approximately what it would cost us.

Hello Bill,
    I have done what your requesting using Google Calendar with a Holiday Inn Location.
The staff would schedule who was having meetings or parties in the event rooms within the hotel.
On the TV in the lobby & breakfast room we showed the upcoming events, times & locations on the right 1/3'rd side of the screen in a list.
On the "Header" (TOP area of the TV screen) it would say "Welcome (Insert next event here) to the Holiday Inn"

All of this was done automatically without anyone having to enter the Signage Studio its self.
All the updating was done through Google Calender, and anyone with access to that calendar could update, add or remove events.

So it CAN be done!!
