    • Navigate to Content > Publish > Defaults option
    • Select the desired playlist once and click "OK" button to proceed
    • Now click "+" sign to add playlist into the queue and then click "publish"



Please note: Since Userful provides preinstalled Signagelive Player, you don't need to install the Signagelive Player. Each display/player is associated with a license code provided by Signagelive platform. So, if you are planning to use Signagelive on multiple displays, you may need multiple license codes. However, in case of a video wall only one license code is required as it is detected as a single display on Signagelive platform.
