ScreenCloud OneDrive Gallery App Guide

Showcase images and videos from your OneDrive account, while being able to customize your background and image transition effects of content.

Please note, if you are using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative OneDrive Gallery guide here.

The ScreenCloud OneDrive Gallery app makes it easy to connect your OneDrive account to your digital screens. Easily share folders of images and videos that update as new content is added.

This gives you the opportunity to create digital media galleries without needing to upload your content individually, and you won’t need to redo galleries as new content becomes available. When you update your OneDrive folder, the new media will automatically be added to your digital screen. This allows you to share any media you’d like within an office, restaurant, store, or reception and ensures your galleries update automatically every five minutes.

With the ScreenCloud OneDrive Gallery app you can:

  • Connect to OneDrive and share folders
  • Choose the timing of your content and whether you want to play in order, or shuffle
  • Customize your background and image transition

Here’s how it works:

1.1. Get started by logging into your ScreenCloud account here and choosing the ScreenCloud App Store from the left-hand menu.

2.2. Select “sign-in” to give ScreenCloud permission to access your OneDrive account and folders. Then log in to your OneDrive account.

3. Choose your folder to show

3.1. Once you’ve allowed access to your OneDrive account, you’ll see a list of folders. To choose a subfolder, click on each folder’s name until you reach the selected folder.

3.2. Press “select” to confirm your folder choice and you’ll be brought back to ScreenCloud where you will see a check-mark confirming that your OneDrive folder is synced.

Next, customize your OneDrive app settings:

i) Stretch images to fill the screen: Selecting this makes your image fill the screen.

ii) Animation: Select between multiple transition effects available for your media.

iii) Duration (in seconds): Control how long a piece of content shows on screen before displaying the next one in your folder.

iv) Background: Customize the background color of your app.

v) Shuffle: Choose to shuffle images randomly.

Once you’ve added your OneDrive Gallery app you have the opportunity to preview it before it gets added to your screens. Click ‘Preview’ and a popup will display your OneDrive Gallery app.

Once you have configured your OneDrive Gallery app it can be easily added to a Channel or Playlist to be played on screen.

Simply select “Add Content” to open the Media Picker and under Apps, you will see all of your app instances, ready to be installed. You can also view ways you can set content on your digital screens using ScreenCloud by clicking here.

Frequently asked questions:

How long will the OneDrive Gallery app show for?

The OneDrive Gallery app will show for a predetermined amount of time depending on the content from your chosen folder and how long a duration you’ve set for each piece of content. For example, if there are 10 images in the selected folder, and each image is set to show for 6 seconds, you will have a one-minute feed.

This can be edited by going to the app settings and changing the time duration.

Can I select multiple folders to display content?

With each instance of the app, you can only choose one folder, however, you can add as many OneDrive apps as you like. We recommend combining media into one folder or adding as many instances of the app as you’d like to show different folders.

How often does OneDrive Gallery app look for new content?

OneDrive Gallery app looks for new content every five minutes.

What file types does the app support?

For images, the app mostly supports jpeg, png, and most common video formats. The app runs by supporting file types that your ScreenCloud device/browser supports. For example, if you're using a Chromebit device that runs on ChromeOS, it would depend on what files Chrome supports for playback on their browser in which .tiff files would not be supported but a .jpeg would display on the screen.
