What's in it for you
Channels allow you to organize your content and distribute it to the relevant users or user groups in Showpad. In each Channel, you can set up a folder structure to organize your content exactly the way you want it. Well-structured Channels ensure your users to quickly find the information they need, allowing them to save time and focus on their conversations or tasks at hand.
On the user side, Channels are displayed on the home screen as Channel Previews. To make your channels recognizable, you can customize their design with a background, a Cover Image, a logo, and custom folder icons.
Note: Cover images are currently only visible to users in the Present tab of Showpad's Web app and the iOS app.
