Valotalive Workplace Digital Signage is compliant with Microsoft SharePoint filtering. Meaning you can apply the same filters in Valotalive Sharepoint Digital Signage app as you would in your SharePoint news and better target your messages.

Valotalive Sharepoint filter feature follows the company Sharepoint rules in filtering news posts. Possible rules could be e.g. filtering by

  • News Type,

  • Audience or

  • Translation languages

This video shows you how the filters can be added from Valotalive SharePoint App settings:

Note! All filters are case sensitive. These rules can be applied when a post has been tagged by the values and the configuration of the Valotalive SharePoint app has filters activated.

Below is an example how these are applied in a SharePoint post:

  3. SharePoint news pages tagged with filters
