Playlists

Adding a Poster to your Playlist

Your playlist is named default. (Note: you may have other playlists that we set up for some occasions such as Admitted Student Weekend. Be sure you are using the default playlist.) Once you create a poster, you add it to your playlist by dragging and dropping and it will be displayed on your screen. (Click Organize to see a list of all of your posters. Once you select the poster you want to add, drag it over to the appropriate playlist on the right menu.)

Reordering the Posters in your Playlist

Items will be rotated in the order shown on your playlist. You can drag and drop items in your playlist to change the order.

Removing a Poster from your Playlist
