Here, you will learn how to recreate your Classic Wiredrive presentations using SHIFT's Spotlight template builder.
To get started, I will show you how to recreate a standard Classic template from Wiredrive in Spotlight as shown below.
First, in your SHIFT account, select the Spotlight (flame) Icon and choose Create New > Template. Enter a name, and select Portal from the options below. Once you enter this information and desired settings, click "Create Template."
Create a new Spotlight template.
Then, clone the Reel template which is the closest match to the Classic Wiredrive presentation we are recreating.
Create a clone of the Reel template.
Now, you can begin designing your Spotlight template. Like the Classic Wiredrive templates, we want to include our brand logo in the template we're creating.
Add an element by clicking the + sign along the left side of the page. In the Elements panel, click Image to upload your logo to the template builder.
Select and upload your logo to the Spotlight template.
Resize and center your logo.
Adjust the background to match what you had set in Wiredrive, or you can select another color of your choosing.
Change your background color in the properties panel.
Add a Hyperlink to Your Logo
Now that you have added your logo, you can set that logo to link back to your company's site or to another page in your spotlight.
Add a link to your logo in the properties panel under "Link."
Use the "Box" element to create a strip around the gallery showcase under your video player.
Add a box element to your template.
Open up your Showcase Gallery element settings. This element displays the assets you'll add later on when building your Spotlight. We recommend setting the Type to Carousel and setting the Tile to Style 2 to best mirror the style in Wiredrive.
Choose your gallery settings.
Once you have gotten your theme to the place you want, exit the builder and go to Create New Spotlight. Give it a title and select the Portal option.
Create a presentation using your new template.
Once you have done that, you can find the template you created in the Template Library under My Templates. Select it to open the builder. Now load any of your playlists into the Gallery element on the page to add to the presentation.
Apply a playlist to your gallery.
Click the Settings button along the top of the page to retrieve your link. Now you have a shareable spotlight, ready to be reviewed with whomever you share it.
Copy your Spotlight link.
