  • Add your company logo. Boost your brand internally and upload a company logo with a transparent background in app settings to go along with your posts
  • Highlight employee praises. In case you are celebrating employee achievements using apps like Praisely!, you might want to emphasise the effect by showing the praises on internal office screens as well.
  • Activate a separate channel just for Digital Signage. In case you’d like to display certain announcements that are just for the office displays, you can activate a private channel in slack just for digital signage usage.
