How to Create a Slide

In the new digital signage content management system (signage.chapman.edu), it is incredibly easy for individuals to create and edit their slides. Every Chapman community member can create a slide, but they must send to the sign owners for approval for it to show live.

Please follow these steps to create a slide.

Step One: Sign in to signage.chapman.edu. All individuals with Chapman login credentials can access the system.

Step Two: Navigate to the “Slides” tab. This located in the top center of your screen.slides tab

Step Three: Select the New Button. Look for the green button.

Step Four: Choose Template and Name. When naming your slide, make sure you are descriptive and possibly even put the semester. (ex. Commencement Event Spring 2016). This information does not show live.

There are four templates to choose from:

  • Standard: This should be used for the majority of your slide creations. the other templates are for very specific usage.
  • Social Feed: This will show a filtered view of social.chapman.edu on the screen. If you are interested in this slide, please reach out to our Interactive Marketing Specialist, Michelle Leslie, at mleslie@chapman.edu and she can provide you with the proper url based on your filters.
  • Directory: This will display a list of the faculty members located in a certain building.
  • Schedule: This slide allows you to present events in a scrolling pattern. it is a singles slide.

Step Five: Build out your Slide. Once you select your template you will be presented with a simple form to fill out. The example below is the Standard template.
