Appspace enables publishers and authors to quickly create posts within the Appspace Employee App, providing an improved content creation workflow experience that allows authors to quickly post articles with text and media without the need to leave the Employee App (and go to the Appspace console).

Authors, Publishers, and Account Owners can create the post, upload media, and publish it to a channel, directly from the Home dashboard or from within any channel in the Employee App. The Appspace platform will automatically translate the post’s content to digital signage and enterprise messaging formats. Users may create a post with any of these combinations:

  • Video + Article: Plays only the video in a signage playlist.
  • Image + Article: Generates a card with an image and article.
  • Article Only: Generates a card with the article.
Note
The images and video added to a post are local to the post and will not be uploaded to the Appspace Library in this release.

This article provides instructions to create and publish posts in Appspace Employee App.
