Better Notifications, in Broadsign Publish or Your Email Inbox
Staying on top of the content approval process is important, so we’re adding a couple of useful options to make sure you can get important messages the way you want.
Content approvers can now receive email notifications for the following:
- Pending approvals
- Comments made on a specific message
- Updated graphics
And as a bonus, the types of email notifications you receive and the frequency at which they are received can both be customized.
You can now also read pending notifications in the new notification center within Broadsign Publish, as well as get notified instantly when someone leaves a comment on your assets.

Want to make a lot of updates within Broadsign Publish? You no longer have to make them one at a time. With our new support for batch operations, the process of sharing, deleting, and reorganizing several messages just got a lot quicker and easier.
Go Deeper with Message Creation Options
We’ve made a couple of small tweaks to the ways messages can be created and distributed, making network management more convenient.
No End Time
You no longer need to schedule an end time far out in the future, and can instead select a “no end time” option. This makes it easier for long-running messages - relating to opening hours, for example - to be scheduled more flexibly.
