Add Tags to Content in Advanced Channels

Tags provide a quick and simple way of targeting content playback to specific groups of devices running the same content advanced channel. By using device tag rules, content managers can filter playback of content in a media zone widget. Tag rules can be applied to a specific content file in a channel or schedule. If no tags are selected, the content will playback on all devices.

Tag rules can be applied to:

  • Individual Content Items within an advanced channel.
  • Advanced channel
  • Advanced channel layouts

This article provides the instructions to add, edit, and manage device tags within Networks.

Prerequisite

  • You must turn on Automatic Sync. Content tagging, and layout tagging will not function when Automatic Sync is set to OFF in the advanced channel.
