This card and its content are a part of our premium subscription services, and requires a premium content license. Please get in touch with your Appspace Customer Success Manager or contact us for subscription details. 

The Industry Content Collection card allows you to browse and select on-demand workplace and industry-critical content feeds from an archive of previously streamed content from Appspace, categorized based on industry type or high-level topics.

To display topics from current or future content feeds, you will need the Industry Feeds card.

These are the features and additional customizations available in the Industry Content Collection card:

  • Display a single feed of industry or high-level topic-based content, with each being populated with a continuous schedule of videos created by Appspace.
  • Each video remains current and displayed on the feed for up to 4 business days, after which it will automatically disappear from the feed when the schedule expires.
  • Appspace currently offers the following premium content feeds that can be selected:
    • Corporate Culture
    • Dairy
    • Healthcare
    • Holidays and Observances (Eng)
    • Holidays and Observances (Eng, Sp)
    • Hospitality

    • Transportation (Eng)
    • Transportation (Eng, Sp)
    • Utility
    • Warehouse and Distribution (Eng)
    • Warehouse and Distribution (Eng, Sp)
    • Waste and Recycling
  • Only a single premium content feed can be selected, while multiple content items can be selected from that feed.
  • Available in English or English and Spanish. While most premium content feeds are in English, some premium content feeds may include dual-language content items (English and Spanish), which will have “(Eng, Sp)” appended after the premium content feed name.
  • Ability to select, search, and review content to be included in the feed quickly, as each content is easily identified by its thumbnail image, title, playback duration, and past playback schedules.
  • Ability to preview content in its entirety before including the content in the feed.
  • Ability to select how many content items in the feed is displayed during playback:
    • All items: Displays all current and selected content items during playback.
    • 1: Displays only one current and selected content item per playback loop, as the card carousels through all current and selected content.
  • Ability to switch between “all content” and “only selected content” views.
  • Support for cached playback on supported devices, which automatically caches content selected in the Industry Content Collection card, allowing for decreased bandwidth usage, as well as the ability to still display if the device loses network connectivity. This feature is dependant and varies based on the capabilities and limitations of the device.
