The MangoSign's editor is where you can customize the content you will send to your Signs. It is built from the ground up with feedback from our users, so if there are any ways we can improve it, please let us know.
Once you Edit a Template, it will open up in the MangoSign's editor for you to customize. Upon opening the editor, you will be asked if you would like to take the Editor Tour. If this is your first time using the editor, we recommend going through the Tour as it highlights some of the basic functionality and features. We also recommend that you Link your Social accounts and Set your Location as it helps with some of the smart content included in some apps/templates.
Below is a screenshot of the MangoSign's editor.
You can find the MangoSign Apps on the left hand side of the screen for you to choose from and add to your Slide. The white icon apps on top are the Free Apps that you are welcome to use under the Free Plan. The colored icons below the white Icons are the Plus Apps. These apps are included during your free trial period, as well as with all paid plans. The Plus apps, typically pull live data and continuously stream content to your signs to keep them fresh and engaging.

After you save your slide, you can preview what it will look like when you send it out to your sign by clicking the Preview button in the Top slide panel. This is particularly useful if you are using animation, text animation, or Apps with a live feed.
