How do I get my content posted on UM-Dearborn digital signage.

ITS does not approve content being posted on signage. There are unit-specific UM-Dearborn Content Managers that have control over the design and content that can be posted.  To post something to digital signs, you will need to get approval from the Content Manager(s) overseeing those signs.
