Al Jazeera App Guide

Al Jazeera provides an in-depth, unique perspective on what’s going on around the world.

With Fugo’s app, you can get the latest Al Jazeera headlines covering the world’s top stories in easy-to-read format built especially for digital signage screens!

Fugo’s Al Jazeera’s app lets you:

  • Choose Al Jazeera’s “Top stories” to run
  • Choose a “duration” for your app inside a playlist
  • Choose the delay (in seconds) between headlines
  • Choose the summary, headers, and background color
  • Publish instantly to screen and come back any time to update your preferences

Here’s how to get started:

1.Install the Al Jazeera app

1.1 Log into your Fugo account or if you don’t have one, you can create one here and start your 14 day free trial!

1.2 Once you’ve logged in/created an account, on the top navigation bar, click “Apps.”

1.3 Scroll down until you see the app, or to save time, you can search for it in the search bar at the top of the store.

1.4 Once you’ve found it click “Try App” to create a new playlist with the app!

Now that you’ve added the app to the playlist, let’s take a look at what’s next: how to customize the app settings!

2. Customize the Al Jazeera app

2.1 A pop-up window will appear where you can customize the app’s headline and appearance settings.

2.2 First select the Al Jazeera topic you want.

2.3 Next, you can set the duration for your app (how long it will run inside of a playlist before the next piece of content.)

2.4 Now you can decide how much of a delay to have between headlines by setting the seconds in “Next Post Delay.”

2.5 Next, you can change the look of your app by setting the headline, summary, and background color.

2.6 When you’re finally done, click “Save Changes” at the bottom right of the window.

Hint: If you want to change Al Jazeera’s app settings at any point, just click the “Setup” button on the app’s panel on the playlist page.

Almost done! Now that the app is all set up just the way you want it, let’s take a look at the finishing touches: building your playlist and publishing it!

3. Build Your Playlist

3.1 Name your playlist (we suggest making it relevant to prevent confusion from other playlists as you make more.)

3.2 Click “Select Screens” to choose where you want your playlist published.

3.3 If you want, you can add more content to the playlist by selecting “Add More Content” and choosing other apps/uploading media.

3.4 Last but not least, you can change the schedule of your content by choosing the start and end date, and then clicking “Week Schedule” to adjust the days and times your content will be displayed.

4. Publish Your Playlist

4.1 Once you have everything set up the way you want it, click “Publish” in the top right hand corner of the screen to publish or schedule your content.

4.2 If you aren’t quite ready to push it to screen, you can click “Finish Later” and come back to the playlist at any time.
