RSS App Guide

Use your screens to show a live news feed from any of your favorite RSS feeds: The New York Times, ESPN, InStyle, Reddit… any feed is game (even your own!)

Our app automatically pulls the latest stories and updates to keep your content consistently fresh. All you need is a URL!

With Fugo’s RSS app you can:

  • Select the feed URL of your choice
  • Set the duration for your app inside a playlist
  • Edit at any time and watch your changes instantly update on screen!

Here’s where to begin:

1.Install the RSS Page App

1.1 Log into  your Fugo Account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can start your 14-day free trial here.

1.2 Click “Apps” in the top navigation bar  to get to our app store.

1.3 Scroll to find the “RSS” app in the store. To find it even faster, you can search for it via the search bar at the top of the store!

1.4 Click “Try App” to create a new playlist with the app.

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

2. Customize the RSS App

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

2.2 First, select which what web page you’d like to display.

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

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

Almost done! Now that you’ve got the app set up to your preferences, let’s finish building your playlist and publish it.

3. Build Your Playlist

3.1 Name your playlist (we suggest making it something relevant to distinguish it from other playlists later on down the road.)

3.2 Click “Select Screens” to choose which screens or screen groups to publish your playlist to.

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

3.4 Finally, you can change the schedule of your content by setting the start and end date, and clicking “Week Schedule” to edit the days and times your content will run.

4. Publish Your Playlist

4.1 Once you’re all done setting up the playlist, click “Publish” in the top right hand corner of the screen to publish or schedule your content.

4.2 If you don’t want to publish just yet, you can click “Finish Later” and come back to your playlist at any time.

And there you have it! If you find yourself still scratching your head, you can watch this video of our team adding and publishing the RSS app.
