Creating a Billboard
As an Admin or Billboard Manager, navigate to the Administration section and then to the Billboard Manager.
- Each billboard is like a card in a deck - you can have a maximum of 10 billboards in the deck at one time
- To create a billboard, click the “Create Billboard” button.
From here, add:
- URL link (this is helpful when promoting an article or external site)
- Lifespan/expiration date
- Billboard image (recommended dimensions: 600px x 300px, image appears in 2:1 ratio)
Once you are finished, click "Save"
Note: The Billboard audience is for Everyone right now but we hope to introduce audience selection at a later date.
A billboard can have three statuses:
- Active: The billboard is currently visible and has an active lifespan
- Scheduled: A custom date in the future was set for the billboard
- Expired: The billboard is no longer visible
Viewing the Billboard(s)
- Once there are one or more active billboards setup, they display above the activity feed
- Billboards will automatically rotate every five seconds but can be manually rotated by clicking the right or left arrows
- The order in which the billboards appear matches the order on the Billboard Manager admin screen, but they can be manually sorted if you prefer
- Clicking on a billboard image will open a new tab in your browser and redirect you to the URL provided for the billboard - this could be a piece of Workvivo content such as an update, event, article, podcast, or a link to an external website or third-party tool
- To sort a billboard from the billboard manager simply click the sort button
- From this screen, drag and drop the billboards into the desired order
- Click “Done” to confirm your choice
Editing / Deleting Billboards
- To edit or delete a billboard, simply click “Edit” on the Billboard manager screen
- To confirm your changes, click “Done”
- To delete the billboard, click the “Delete” button and confirm your choice
Using Billboards on Mobile Device
The only way to post/edit a billboard is on a desktop, however they will show up on your Workvivo mobile device within the Activity Feed.
You can interact with them with them through your mobile device by clicking on them.
