What does this software review cover?

Campus Dish

  • How to view imported products from Campus Dish. Products cannot be edited from EngagePHD (this would need to be done through Prima, but we will review actions to temporarily turn products off and hide from menus, if needed. We’ll also talk about troubleshooting – are the correct product categories being used in your Layouts?

Manage your Menu Designs with the Layout Designer

  • How to adjust Layouts. Layouts are where menus are designed and can be edited. In this section we’ll talk about how to adjust product tables (column width, fonts). You will also have full control over changing backgrounds, adding additional text zones, and copying Layouts.

Playlist Rotations or Menu Scheduling

  • Playlists are helpful where a rotation or schedule of menu Layouts might be needed. Playlists can also be used to schedule temporary event menus that are created as JPEG images or Layouts.


  • Players is the term used for the hardware side of your menu boards. We’ll talk about Player Actions and how you can send actions to Force Update or Reboot your device. We’ll also talk about Screenshots and Screen Management, which allows you to schedule your screens to go to sleep outside of operating hours.
