Campus digital signage server to be updated this summer

Appspace logoOIT is currently upgrading the campus digital signage server to the latest on-premise release, Appspace 6.3. The update will enable some new features like Cards, Channels, and new content libraries. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be recruiting users of the digital signage system to test the upgrade before deploying to the rest of the campus in July. If you are interested in being a tester, please send an email to Ian Aberle at iaberle@smu.edu.

What’s New in Appspace?

Cards: Cards make it simple for anyone to create, manage and publish information and content in Appspace with easy (customizable) theme options and automatic formatting for different devices and aspect ratios. Learn more >

Channels: Channels make it simple to get relevant content and information to specific users or devices. Create channels for any special group you can think of—like individual departments or programs—and their channels automatically appear in the easy-to-use Appspace App. Learn more >

Enhanced user management: A more flexible user membership model enables a user to belong to multiple user groups and inherit new permissions. User groups can now also have their own content library. As such, users who belong to multiple user groups can now access multiple libraries. Learn more >
