Creating and Using App Banners

Use app banners to promote upcoming shows, new releases and bonus content all within Artist Connection. Use app banner notifications to keep your audience up to date on everything you do.

  1. In your studio portal, click App Banners on the left hand menu.
  2. Click Add New Banner.
  1. Enter in your app banner details. Depending on the type of app banner you select, the title and message will be displayed to users. Add a reference URL to link to an external website.
  1. Choose your banner type:
    1. Pop up: this banner type will appear when a user opens the Artist Connection app. Once a user dismisses the banner, it will not appear again.
    2. Persisted: this banner type will appear at the top of the studio feed in the Artist Connection app. This banner will always appear in the app until the user dismisses it or the Live Until date is reached.
      • If selecting Persisted banner, you will then be prompted to choose a banner size.
  1. Set the Live From to Live Until date to set the time fame your banner will be live. If you do not want your app banner to expire, leave the Live Until date empty.
  2. To add an image to your app banner, you can use a file from the Media Library or a file from your local machine.
    1. To use a file from your local machine, locate the file then drag and drop it on the default image in the portal.
    2. To use an image from your Media Library, click on the default image to open your Media Library. Locate the file you wish to use then drag and drop it to the default image.
  3. If using a Persisted banner, choose where you’d like your image to be displayed on the banner with the Choose image position drop down under the image.

If you have selected Fill for the image position, do not enter any text in the title or message field as it will display text over your image. Instead, hit your space key on your keyboard in each required field.
