ScreenCloud TripAdvisor App Guide

Are you using TripAdvisor to collect reviews and feedback on your restaurant, hotel or business? Then it’s time to share that feedback on your digital signage screens! The TripAdvisor app from ScreenCloud lets you put reviews from TripAdvisor onto your TV screens in a few simple steps.

With the ScreenCloud TripAdvisor app you can:

  • Easily share reviews from TripAdvisor to your digital screen
  • Choose a rating filter to ensure only the reviews you want to see are shown
  • Make it easy for customers and anyone viewing your screen to read your reviews

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s TripAdvisor app

1.1. Get started by clicking here and selecting “Get App”. This will prompt you to either log into your existing ScreenCloud account, or sign up for our 14-day free trial in order to use the TripAdvisor app and other available apps within our App Store.

1.2. Once you’re logged in, you can select ‘Add this app’ from the top right-hand corner

2. Add your TripAdvisor URL

2.1. Next, go to your TripAdvisor page and copy the URL shown. This is the URL used to display the reviews page, as shown below:

2.2. Add this to the URL box within the TripAdvisor app settings page.

3. Choose your settings

Next choose which language to share your reviews in from the dropdown and a rating filter.

Item duration (in seconds) allows you to pick how many seconds you would like to show each review for before moving onto the next one.

4. Preview your results

Once you have chosen your settings you can select “Preview” to see what your reviews will look like on screen. This allows you to check you have the correct page and that you are showing the reviews you wish your audience to see.

Once you are happy click “Add App” and give your reviews a name.

This will add your app to the Content Library.

5. Add your reviews to a playlist

Next, go to “Playlists” and drag and drop the app from the selection bar on the right-hand side to the playlist of your choosing.

You can also set the duration you would like TripAdvisor app to show for (currently set to 01:00 for one-minute). For example, if you have set each review to show for 10 seconds and the app to play for a duration of one-minute you will see a total of 6 reviews during that time.
