Creating a New Info Bar Location

Creating a New Info Bar Location

Information bars or info bars are strips of scrolling text at the bottom of the digital signage screen. Utilise this feature to make instant and on-the-go announcements

Info Bar


Before you can send info bar announcements, an info bar location needs to be setup first. 

Note: Your admin account needs to have permissions to access this setting. Contact our support team to ask access.




  1. Go to Add On Modules > Digital Signage > Settings

  2. Select the Info Bar tab

  3. Click + New Info Bar

  4. Enter the following fields in the New panel to add your new info bar.


    Enter info bar name. Use an easily identifiable name, e.g. All internal screens, Staff channel, Reception.


    Select the location(s) where this info bar will be displayed.

    Note: If the content intended for the scrolling info bar area is location specific, add one info bar per location.  If your info bar content is global, you can add one info bar to multiple locations.

    Contegro User(s)

    Select one or more users who will have access to edit the announcements via the member portal

    Background Color

    Enter a color hex code to set the info bar background color.


    Use this field to set a default background image (optional). The image size should match your info bar screen size (e.g. current standard is 1920px x 160px).

    Note: Create images at the correct size as they are not automatically optimised to fit the info bar area.

    Text Color

    Enter a color hex code to set the info bar text color.


    Set the info bar status.

  5. Click Save Info Bar


TIP: Users can be assigned to multiple info bar locations
