A good way to create an international feel in your workspace and bring your worldwide teams closer together is to display world clocks. Our World Clock app can help you manage your far-flung team members, no matter where they are in the world, by keeping up with the time in several different locations.
You don’t have to Google “time in New York” ever again 😉
Your World Clock dashboard is remarkably easy to set up and customize. On top of that, our app offers some really neat features for personalization.
With Fugo’s World Clock app you can:
- Choose from 150 languages to set your clock to
- Display multiple clocks (by selecting multiple cities)
- Switch between analog and digital clock formats
- Arrange multiple clocks into rows manually (or select the ‘auto’ option, which will arrange your clocks in an optimal layout automatically)
- Choose to show or hide seconds
- Switch between 12 and 24 hour formats (for digital clock format)
- Add your own background image
Here’s how to get started
1.Install the World Clock 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 World Clock 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 World Clock app
2.1 A pop-up window will appear where you can customize the app’s settings.
2.2 First, select your language.
2.3 Next, select the cities you want to display the time for by clicking Add Cities
2.4 Choose whether you want your clocks to display in analog or digital format.
2.5 If you’re adding more than one clock, Fugo automatically optimizes their format for your screen. But if you want to set this yourself you can choose how many rows to format them into from the drop down menu under Rows.
2.6 Next, choose whether you want to display the time in 12 or 24 hour format and whether you want to display the seconds.
2.7 Next, set the app’s duration (this refers to how long an app will play inside a playlist.)
2.8 If you want to customize your clock’s appearance further, you can add a background image or change the background color.
2.9 Finally, you can turn on Ken Burns animation for a subtle background effect.
2.10 Once you’re all done, click Save Changes in the bottom right corner!
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 there! Now that you’ve got the app set up to your preferences, let’s look at how to finish building your playlist and publish it.
3. Build out your playlist
3.1 Give your playlist a name (we suggest making it something relevant to distinguish it from other playlists later on down the road.)
3.2 Click Select Screens to choose where to publish your playlist.
3.3 If desired, 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.
