The Quotes Feed card provides administrators a simple way to display a feed of inspirational quotes. Administrators can select from up to 6 unique feed topics, presented in either English, Spanish, or both.

When multiple feeds are selected, quotes play out alternating topics to ensure variety. When automatic styling is enabled, quotes rotate through various high-contrast layouts and color designs.

Users also have the ability to define a single style (layout, background and colors) that will apply to all quotes if they wish to better control the presentation of their content. A logo may also be chosen for users who would like to personalize the branding of their Quotes content.

Features of this card include:

  • Ability to display one or multiple quote feeds in their card’s rotation.
  • There are 6 unique feeds: authors, entertainment, inspirations, leaders, sports, and workplace
  • Users can choose either English or Spanish, or both the languages.
    By default, all 6 feeds are selected in English language, only. When multiple feeds are selected, quotes play out alternating feeds to ensure variety to the viewer. When both English and Spanish languages are selected, the same quote plays back-to-back, first in English, then next in Spanish.
  • Ability to define the number of quotes per playback loop. A user may choose to set this within a range of 1-6 quotes per playback loop. By default, 4 quotes will display.

  • Ability to set duration per quote, where user can define how long each quote will display for within a playback loop.
  • Ability to set a transition animation between quotes.
  • Ability to display quotes using an auto-generated theme.
  • Ability to display a consistent quote layout style where users can have their content meet corporate branding standards that benefit by setting a single styling for all quotes.
  • Ability to exclude quotes from feed based on keywords.
  • Ability to display a custom logo image.
    Only a single image file may be uploaded. Logos will automatically appear in the top right corner of content, regardless of which design layout is displayed.
