About Appspace

Appspace is the enterprise digital signage solution for SMU. The Appspace console is used to manage content on the various digital displays around campus. Each digital display is connected to a player device, such as a PC, or media player, such as a BrightSign player.

Individuals with access to the Appspace system can upload content via the cloud.appspace.com website and create a sign playlist channel for their managed device. This channel can be configured to cycle through a series of dynamic and static content – all of which can easily be updated via the web.

Requesting New Digital Signage

Departments interested in joining existing digital signage displays or adding new displays to Appspace will need to submit the web form located at help.smu.edu. OIT has purchased a site license for the Appspace. Departments are responsible for the cost of the display, the device or media player, and any incurred expenses for mounting of the signage.

Requesting Permissions

Access to Appspace may be requested by a supervisor of the employee needing editing abilities on Appspace via the form at help.smu.edu. Once added, the user is sent an invitation directly from Appspace to grant them access. The new user will need to click on the unique link in the email to create and activate their account.

Appspace Invitation

Appspace Login and Password

The Appspace login uses the email address to which the invite was sent. In most cases, this will be their "@smu.edu" or "@mail.smu.edu" email address. The password is the password set when they created their account.

Forgotten Passwords  If a user forgets their Appspace account password, they will need to use the "Forgot your password?" link on the login page at cloud.appspace.com.
