Each group/level of our digital signage CMS system features its own content library. To share content among multiple sub-groups, simply import the content at a higher level. The higher you save your content in the hierarchy, the more shareable it becomes.
The top or root level Content Library is “global.” Lower levels, where players are assigned, are “local.” If you give local-level users access to higher levels, they can grab and drop shared digital content into their local playlists.
Playlists follow the same rule. You can use a playlist created at the top or root level in any subgroup. If someone edits this global playlist, the changes appear everywhere that playlist is used.
If you have multiple levels of subgroups, you have more options. You can create subgroups for different countries, provinces, or states. You can create another level for each site or facility. Then, you can add another sublevel for departments, and so on. When you finish, you can upload and manage content or playlists by country, site, or department.
Content management features
With QL, you can preview videos in full screen from the content library. Swap new versions of digital items into your playlists with the ‘update media’ feature.
Control when content shows on screen by setting start and end times. For example, show clip X only from 8:00 to 10:00 AM weekdays for a month.
Use smart content folders to find content fast. Filter by tags, expiration dates, last edit date, or the last editor’s name. Smart folders also show content waiting for approval.

By default, media items will play according to their position in the playlist. You reorganize items by dragging them up and down the playlist, or you can switch to random playback mode.
Drag and drop a playlist inside a template to create a playlist zone. Any changes to the playlist will be reflected in the zone whenever the template is shown on screen.
Scheduling grid (QL Pro only)
In order to be shown, each playlist must be assigned one or more time slots in the scheduling grid. Drag and drop the desired playlists into the planning grid, then specify how long you want this playlist to run.
- Pre-schedule your content in advance.
- The planning grid is a visual representation of your weekly programming. Users must drag and drop playlists into the grid and assign a time slot so the content can play.
QL Pro’s digital signage content management system supports two types of programming.
- Sequential programs: This is when time slots follow one another. For example, playlist A runs from 8 to 10AM, B from 10 to 11AM, etc.
- Merged programs: This is when two or more time slots overlap one another.
