Many of the ScreenScape playlist layouts include a weather widget. You can assign a specific weather location by adjusting the weather location settings:

STEP 1: Select the screen icon  in the top right of the ScreenScape application. This will take you to the Hardware page.

STEP 2: Double-click on the hardware in question to access the settings, or alternatively, click the hardware once, and select the edit option in the top right of the application.

STEP 3: On the top-right side of the page, select the Properties tab, and then click on the Location drop down tab.

STEP 4: Enter the address of the physical location where the is located in the available text field. Once completed, the hardware will populate weather information from the closest weather station available to that address. Make sure to click on Save when you are done.

IMPORTANT: Your screen will (by default) display the location of the city or town that the closest weather station is located in. For instructions on how to manually enter the name of the city or town that your device is in, see the article titled How to Change Weather Settings.
