The PlayerLync app is all about getting the information quickly. All the content you see in your app is downloaded locally to your device, so you don’t need to have internet access to view it. You do need internet access, however, for your app to sync and receive files – we’ll cover this in Receiving Content Updates (Syncing). For now, let’s look at the basics of viewing content on the app.
COLUMNS AND FOLDERS
After logging in with the username and password provided by your organization's PlayerLync administrator, you’ll see the Content screen with all your content presented in three content columns or rows. The name and organization of these columns, and the folders within, are set by your organization.
Within each column are section headers. Tapping these will expand the folder and reveal content, which may be documents, videos, learning courses, or forms. Click on the title to open content.
Tap Content on the bottom navigation to return to this screen from other areas of the app. (Note that the other items visible to you in both the top and bottom navigation may vary based on your organization’s PlayerLync set up.)
Often, the quickest way to find what you need is to use the Search function.
Begin typing in the search box and the content will filter in real-time, revealing content within folders. This main search function searches the names of files only. (There is also a separate search function for specific text within documents.)
VIEWING RECENT AND FAVORITE CONTENT
You may also use Favorites or Recent to quickly find files.
Once content is marked as a Favorite (done by tapping the Star in the top right corner of the document or video) use this to display only those favorite files.
The Recent icon to see two lists of content: those files that were Recently Opened and those that were Recently Downloaded.
LOGGING OUT AND CHANGING PASSWORD
To log out of the app, or change your password, go to Settings.
