This article introduces badges, and explains how and where they can be used on assets.
The following topics are covered here:
What are badges?
Badges are asset metadata items that you can display on an asset tile. Use them to highlight or add context to an asset within specific rows.
Alternatively, a ‘Just added’ badge applied to a movie or show asset engages users and aids discovery of newly added content. Add an 'Exclusive' badge so users know they won't find the content elsewhere.
Badges are typically displayed above the asset title, and are responsive, adjusting in both size and position as the screen size changes.
How do I add a badge?
Note: By default, Presentation Manager only supports text badges. If you want to display an image badge – for example, to overlay a brand image logo on your asset – some customization will be required.
To display a badge on an asset, in Presentation Manager, navigate to the asset catalog (Menu>Assets>) and select the relevant asset.
With Metadata selected in the left-hand navigation, the Badge field can be seen just above Short Description.
Enter the required badge text into the field (20-character limit). When you’re done, click on to save your changes and display the badge on supported rows and devices.
The first image below shows badge text entered on a movie asset in Presentation Manager. The second is the corresponding badge displayed on the asset tile on a H1 Hero row in the Responsive web app.
Which rows support badges?
Support for badges varies by row type and by device. Check out our row types articles for more details, and to see examples of how badges appear on applicable device types.
