Use the Stack item dialog to add content to a sequence and specify when it is played.
To display this dialog, click the Add new item button in a stack, or click the Options button on a stack item and click Edit.
The following tabs are available:
Label — The name of the item, which will be displayed on the thumbnail.
— Click to apply a colour to the stack item. Use colours to help easily identify items in the sequence. Colours are not displayed on the screen and are for helping manage content in the admin interface only.
Duration — Control how long an image or web page is displayed before progressing to the next item. If a video is uploaded and this field is not modified, it will be populated by the length of the video.
Use the options on the display tab to define the multimedia to be displayed. There are 3 display types:
- Single item — Display a single item consuming the full area of the sequence.
- Inner sequence — Display multiple items one after another from another sequence.
- Multiple items at the same time — Position and display multiple items and sequences on the screen at once.
Control how long a stack item will be displayed in a sequence by entering a start and/or end date.
When Collect playback data is selected, additional options become available.
Enter a Target play count and a date range and smart display pacing either displays or skips the item in a given loop of the sequence in order to meet the target play count by the end date.
Use conditions to determine if an item is displayed or skipped. If a condition is true, the item is displayed and the sequence progresses to the next slot. If a condition is false, the item is skipped and the item below it in the stack is evaluated.
Enter conditions manually, or click Build new condition to display the Build new condition dialog, which enables you to construct conditions based on location, audience analytics, scheduling, and frequency.
Configure transition animations to provide visually pleasing movement between items in a sequence.
Define what happens when the item on the screen is touched, a key is pressed, or a condition is true.
An event consists of two parts; a trigger and an action. When the trigger occurs, the action is performed. Actions include displaying a web page, playing another sequence, collecting data (such as an email address), or adding advanced data.
A trigger can occur at any time while the item is displaying and the action will interrupt the playback of the active item.
Click New event to display the Configure event dialog and define an event.
Any events created for an item are listed on the stack item's dialog.
Add custom data to the stack item.
