ScreenCloud Engage App Guide

Encourage your employees to share photos and captions directly from their smartphones to your digital signage screens.

ScreenCloud Post

With ScreenCloud’s Engage app, you can encourage your employees and teams to share content directly from their smartphones. The app allows you to capture photos, add captions, and send them to streams to be shown directly on your digital signage screens. A simple and easy tool to keep your workforce engaged and connected!

With the ScreenCloud Engage app you can:

  • Easily share photos and updates from your smartphone in seconds
  • Set up different streams based on photos, location, or preference
  • Invite users to manage, share, and add content to your streams

Here’s how it works:

1. Download the ScreenCloud Engage app to your phone

1.1. To get started, visit the Apple Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android) on your mobile device. For the example below, we downloaded the app from the Google Play Store and performed these steps on an Android device.

1.2. Search for Engage ScreenCloud in your App Store search bar.

Frequently asked questions:

Do photos appear automatically once sent from my smartphone using the Engage App?

The Engage App pulls new images to your digital screens every 60 seconds. Please note, the Engage App will not show the most recent image on the screen you have sent right away. The current photo which is queued will continue to display and then proceed to show the new image once the photo list is cycled. For example, if you have 10 images in total and your screen is currently displaying the 5th photo - you add 2 more images from your phone, the app will continue on through the remaining images and then show the new photos.

What are the minimum operating system requirements to use the Engage app on my phone?

You need Android 5.0 or higher or iOS 10 or higher. We don't support other platforms such as Blackberry OS or Windows phone.

What file types can I upload to the Engage app?
