A guide to getting the latest weather forecasts up on your screens for everyone to see.
Please note, if you're using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative Weather app guide here.
ScreenCloud’s Weather app allows you to display a five-day weather forecast for up to three cities across your digital screens. This helps keep employees and customers up to date with the latest weather forecasts, in Fahrenheit or Celsius, from anywhere in the world.
The Weather app auto-updates so you can ensure that once setup, it will keep your screens up to date with the latest weather forecasts without you ever needing to refresh it.
With the ScreenCloud Weather app you can:
Here’s how it works:
1.1. Sign in your ScreenCloud account and go to the App Store.
1.2. Type "weather" into the search box to find the Weather app. Select the app and click "Install App" to add a new instance.
In the next page, you'll see the Settings panel for creating and modifying an instance of the Weather app.
Once you're happy with your weather settings, click "Preview" to see what they look like. This will help ensure you've selected the desired locations.
If you decide to only show one forecast, this will extend to fill the entire screen, as shown below.
When you're happy with the weather forecasts you can add them to a playlist. Navigate to "Playlists" and either add your Weather app to an existing playlist or create a new one. Simply drag and drop your Weather app instance from the right-hand menu to anywhere within the playlist.
To add your Weather app to a channel, check out the tutorial below.
All set! You can now showcase weather forecasts across your digital signage screens.
Can I display the Weather app in a portrait mode?
Yes, the Weather app can be used within a portrait or landscape display.
Can I use the Weather app as part of a zoned digital signage display?
Yes, when setting up a zoned display you'll see the option to “Add Content”. Any weather feeds you've set up will be found in this list.
How are the forecasts ordered?
The weather forecasts are shown from left to right, in the order they were entered when you add your locations to the app. To change the order in which they show, simply change the order in which you select the cities in location one, two, and three.
How long is the Weather app shown for?
The Weather app is a static display, therefore it's shown for the time duration that you set within your playlist or channel. This can be edited at any time by selecting the appropriate playlist or channel from the "Playlists" or "Channels" sidebar and changing the time duration next to the Weather app of your choice.
How often are the weather forecasts updated?
The cache of the weather forecast results is refreshed every 30 minutes.
