  • Instance Name - Edit this section to name your Yelp reviews (for example, "Yelp app - The Met"). This will help you spot it later if you're adding more than one set of reviews to your feed.
  • URL - Find the page you want to show on Yelp and copy and paste the URL address in this box. 
  • Rating filters - Choose whether to show all of your Yelp reviews or only the ones with a specific star rating.
  • Item duration (in seconds) - Choose how long you want to display each Yelp review.

3. Preview your results

Once you've chosen your Yelp app settings, you have the opportunity to preview things before it gets added to a playlist. This helps you determine that the correct reviews are showing on the screen. Simply click the "Preview" button in the settings panel.
