Content Amplifiers enable you to deliver content directly to your intranet, CRM, digital signage, extranet, and other locations that support embedding via URL, iFrame, or script code. For example, our Content Amplifiers work with Sharepoint, Sitecore, Salesforce, WordPress, Confluence, Teams and many more.
Content Amplifiers give you the flexibility you need to customize the look, feel, and content without requiring extensive implementation work for you or your IT team.
SC Guide content is embedded directly in this article (two different templates below). This is LIVE - you can click on the content!
Kiosk template: auto-advances through the content, simple clean interface - click to enter the web experience and see the content in detail.

Set Up a Content Amplifier
- In Program Studio navigate to Publish > Amplifiers. If Amplifiers is not available, please reach out to your Engagement Manager.
- On the Amplifiers page, click the plus [+] button in the top right corner.
- Click on untitled feed to name your feed (no character limit).
- Select a template.
- Preview the look and feel of your template to the left of the settings bar.
- Select a content source from the available options. All options will display content in the employee experience in chronological order (newest publish date at the top):
- Content channels - display posts from one or more selected channels. Posts from selected channels will be interspersed and ordered by published date, starting with the most recent post.
- Featured - display featured posts assigned to non-targeted channels.
- Trending - display trending posts, defined by the same rules as the mobile app's Trending tab.
- Personalized - display a user's personalized feed (ie followed content) if they are registered and following channels. If the user is not registered, or is not following channels, this setting will show a mixture of posts published to My Feed and the program's recommended channels.
- Depending on the selected template and content source, configure additional settings:
- Select content channels
- Designate a number of posts per page
- Designate whether you want links to open in a new tab or the same tab
- Display only posts with images, if desired
- Color theme light, dark, or custom (select hex code)
- Designate slide delay in seconds for templates that automatically change displayed content
Standard: Use this display mode when you want to require users to sign in to view private (non-shareable) content. This mode restricts anonymous users from viewing any private content; they will only be able to see shareable posts.
Public: Use this display mode when you don't want to require users to sign in to view private (non-shareable) content, like when embedding on a site that is available to employees only. With this display mode, posts from targeted channels will only be visible to signed in users.
Selected Users: Use this display mode for things like digital signage, where users do not sign in to see personalized content. Select a specific user from the dropdown menu and the Content Amplifier will display content as though that user is signed in. If users are able to click on a post, they will still be prompted to sign in to see details.
- Enabling this setting will allow anyone with access to the page where the Amplifier is embedded to view both internal and shareable posts.
- When you enable this setting, you will be prompted to confirm that you understand that this will allow non-registered users to see internal content.
You can preview how the content will appear while configuring a Content Amplifier. Select Logged In or Unregistered at the top of the page to see how content appears to users based on their signed in/registered status.
Applies to registered users that are signed into the program. The following describes the user experience when using the Standard Display Mode.
- Content Amplifiers leverage a user's web experience sign in session. If a user is signed into the web experience and is fully registered, they will see the signed in view of a Content Amplifier.
- Programs with SSO - if the user is signed into the SSO Identity Provider and they have pop-ups enabled, they will be automatically signed in.
- Users that are signed in and registered can see both internal (non-shareable) posts and shareable posts in a Content Amplifier.
- On templates that support liking and bookmarking, these users will be able to perform those actions.
- Content is automatically refreshed when a new post is published in Program Studio. Users must refresh the webpage to see the newly published content.
Users that have not registered or are signed out. The following describes the user experience when using the Standard Display Mode.
- If a user has not completed registration or is signed out, they will see only shareable posts.
- Non-shareable content cards will still appear but with a lock icon for the image and blanked out text. This will help prompt the user to register or sign in.
- At the top of an Amplifier, these users will see a branded prompt to register or sign in.
- Programs with SSO - if the user is not automatically signed into the SSO Identity Provider, the sign in button will allow in-frame sign in.
Anonymous Users Can See Private Content
If you've enabled the Public Display Mode, the following applies:
- All users will see both internal and shareable content, regardless of registration or signed in status.
- There will be no prompt to sign in or register within a Content Amplifier.
- If the users click to bookmark, like, or view full post users will be prompted to sign in (or register).
Like web and mobile, activity that happens in Content Amplifiers will be reflected in your program Dashboard if users are signed in. Usage in Content Amplifiers will be reflected in Active Users, Activities, Reach, Clicks, Likes, and more.
