Tags enable you to set up alternative scenarios involving any or all of your screens. Once a tag is created, you can activate the tag for a certain duration. For example, you could create a fire emergency playlist that would direct people to evacuate immediately. Then create a new tag, set the playlist as the fire emergency playlist you created, and tag all screens.
What happens if the screen is offline when a tag is activated?
Once the screen comes online, it will play the tagged playlist for the remainder of tag activation time.
What happens if I activate several tags at the same time?
If a screen has several active tags, most recently activated tag takes precedence.
Why do I need to assign a playlist to a tag beforehand?
In a situation where you’d want to quickly activate a tag, it is important that the player already has all the files of the tagged playlist downloaded. By tagging screens with a specific playlist, the screens can download required files for the tagged playlist, so that when tag is activated, screen can start playing right away.
