What is addZyngs?

addZyngs is a ZyncroApp that lets you add messages, images, links or even insert web pages in the main menus of your corporate Zyncro interface.

With addZyngs, you can create your own banners, corporate messages, notifications, offers… that will be visible to all members of your organization.

addZyngs configuration

To start to configure addZyngs, the organization’s administrator must go to the Administration Panel > ZyncroApps > addZyngs > Enable, and once the ZyncroApp is enabled, click on Configure. Within the configuration options, you can add content in:

  • Sidebar: Adds a new section on the right panel in Zyncro where you can post pictures, text or links. How would you like to be able to easily access all the main links you use? Or want to add a banner?
  • Header: Adds a messages shown at the top of the Zyncro web page. This can be used to post a corporate message for the whole organization. So everyone will know what’s going on in the company. It can be plain text, an image or you can include links and HTML code.
  • Section: Adds a new clickable section within the Zyncro main menu, beside the Profile section. You can either load an external web page within Zyncro or create your own content. Ideal for integrating the corporate web page or blog!

How do I add external images?

If you want the space you added to contain an image, click on the image icon in the addZyngs configuration section.

In the window that pops up, enter the address (URL) of the external image you want to add and press OK. The image is automatically inserted in the desired location (sidebar, header, or section).

If you insert an image in the sidebar, there is a maximum width for the size: 250 pixels. If the photo exceeds this size, it will be cropped, so best reduce its size or edit it beforehand so that it appears in the way you want.

 

How do I embed a video or HTML code?

At any time, you can change between the visual editor and the HTML editor directly by clicking the last button in the toolbar in the addZyngs configuration window.

Once this option is activated, in the textbox for the HTML code, you can enter a section of HTML code to personalize you space.

One of the great features of this is you can embed a video that is hosted on YouTube, Vimeo or other such services, either in the header or in the new section you add to the main menu.

 

Encrust a video with addZyngs

 

YouTube or Vimeo gives you a HTML code to embed videos in any web page. The only thing you have to do is copy this code, paste it in the HTML editor window and save the changes.

You can do this, for example, to post a institutional video or an important message so that the entire organization will see it as soon as possible.

With addZyngs, you can take the initiative and customize Zyncro, adding contents that let you personalize your enterprise social network as far as possible.
