Dean,

You would need to implement the common alert protocol (CAP) into your signage. You can read more about it here.

If you would like assistance in setting up CAP alerts, we now offer Premium Support subscriptions on a monthly basis, information on that is available here.

If I just want to send out a non emergency notification can I do this without paying for a service. I was wondering if I  would have to create Presentation then schedule to all Players.

Dean,

You would create a new schedule for it, when assign all displays to it.

That's what I was doing. Each time I get a Distribution Error. "AVCC Room 210 is already selected in schedule. AVCC-Digital Signage Schedule.

Thank you

Dean,

You will need to remove the displays from the other schedules before they can be added to a new schedule.

Its working, Thank you. I had a schedule associated to multiple devices at one location. I had to un-associate or un-check the devices before it would allow me to attach my new Test Emergency Presentation. I hope this makes sense.
