ScreenCloud Digital Signs App Guide

ScreenCloud's Digital Signs app provides pre-set signs like inspirational or educational quotes, or Bible verses for churches to display on your digital screens. The digital signs included are already designed with backgrounds and text, for your convenience. Please note, these signs cannot be edited. If you would like to create your own signs, you might like to try our Noticeboard app, or our Quotes app

To keep content fresh, Digital Signs app selects from a selection of background images and pairs them randomly with different quotes, in order to help keep your content fresh at all times.

Frequently asked questions:

Can I edit or remove some of the signs from each pack?

The Digital Signs app offers content that is already created in a pre-designed and screen-ready format. If you’d like the ability to edit or create your own digital signs, you might want to use our Noticeboard app, Quotes app or a separate design tool, all of which will allow you more freedom to make changes. 

Can I combine, or add more than one set of digital signs to my display?

You can create as many Digital Signs app instances as you like in ScreenCloud, which allows you to use some, or all, of the digital signs packs. You cannot combine lots of different signs in one instance, but by creating and adding different instances to a playlist or Channel, you can ensure a mix of signs if you so wish. Just ensure that you name each set with something different so you can easily spot them in your content library later on.

Can I use Digital Signs app in portrait?

Yes, Digital Signs app is compatible with both portrait and landscape screens.
