With instant updates, custom formatting, and control over duration, Fugo’s app lets you fully control the messages/announcements you wish to show!

All you have to do is install the app, choose the text you want displayed, set the duration in seconds and done! You’ve got the easiest way to inform your audience about whatever you want!

With Fugo’s Simple Text app you can:

  • Select the message/announcement 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 Simple Text 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 “Simple Text” app in the store. To find it even faster, you can search for it via the search bar at the top of the store!

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

2. Customize the Simple Text App


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

2.2 First, type in the message/announcement 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.

3.2 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.
