Sample template: Schools 02

 

 

 

Description

This school template has several areas to display information to parents and visitors.  The school notice area on the top left, the news ticker at the bottom of the screen and a school pictures are top right.  Each of these areas can be updated remotely from the school network or could be updated from the Internet with our free www.repeatserver.com service.

 


Features

- School notices - The light purple area is an RTF (Rich Text Format) control.   You can just manually update the text in the presenation or you can display text from an RTF file on a network drive.  If you display from a network drive (and edit this controls properties on the Refresh tab to monitor) then when the network RTF file is updated, the screen is instantly update.

 

- RSS feed control - This displays news items from www.repeatserver.com, which is a free service to Repeat Signage users that allows RSS news feeds to be created and maintained. In this presentation, http://www.repeatserver.com/Users/RepeatSamples/SchoolNews.xml is displayed which is just a sample. Your organisation can go and create a free www.repeatserver.com account to create and publish it's own RSS feeds for use in Repeat Signage presentations.

 

- The latest school pictures area is a Flash Banner control with 4 items in the play list.  Each item allows the selection of a picture and, optionally, two lines of text.  RepeatServer.com supports the creation of playlists for this control, so this could also be controlled remotely.

All other page text and pictures are static, i.e. it doesn't change dynamically. These can be changed at any time by editing and saving the presentation. The presentation itself can also be changed over a network and when saved the Repeat Signage will automatically reload the new version.
