Creating Touch Screen Content For Your Screens 

About Touch Integration.

Everything you need to know

The touch widget is a key feature of the TrouDigital platform. It can enable you to create truly interactive content by linking to other creatives, webpages, or making a touch slideshow. In this section we’ll show you how to:

  1. Add a touch overlay to your content.
  2. Linking touch overlay to another creative.
  3. Adding your touch content into a playlist.

The touch feature is always being improved, so keep your eyes peeled for new features and updates.

Creating Touch Content.

Creating your content

Firstly, create content to go on your screen. In this example, we have made a simple menu where the images act as buttons.

Make sure your design is named appropriately.
