The BoxCast Dashboard is where you will manage your BoxCast account settings and broadcasts. This article will provide an overview of the Dashboard's key areas.


While all the following areas lie within what we refer to as the Dashboard, the actual Dashboard button is like your home button. Clicking the Dashboard button will display any current, upcoming, and past broadcasts.

Schedule a Broadcast

The Schedule a Broadcast button is used to schedule the live events you plan on live streaming.


The Channels button will display a list of all your created channels. Channels are a great way to organize your content.


The Embed button provides a page where code can be tailored and copied to allow the BoxCast video player to be placed on your website.

Media Uploads

The Media Uploads button allows you to upload a broadcast, upload documents, add graphic overlays, add pre-event videos, add thumbnail images, upload a podcast thumbnail, set your default image for the video player (Posters), and build your own graphic template.

Multi-Site Player

The BoxCast Multi-Site Video Player is a solution for enabling remote campuses to watch your live broadcasts. Our advanced DVR player buffers your live broadcast locally, showing advanced statistics to ensure a beautiful picture every time.

If you do not see the Multi-Site Player on your account but wish to add it, book a meeting with your customer success manager, email us, or add it in the self-checkout.


The Reports button will display all your viewer analytics, as well as ticket and donation reports. See views of content on the account, or view a map of where viewers are watching from.


The Settings page contains several sub-pages, including Account, Preferences, Integrations, Billing, Storage, Appearance & Apps, and API Keys.


The Account tab allows for editing organizational information, as well as for editing your user password.


The Preferences tab will allow you to edit or enable multiple features like:


The Integrations tab allows for adding your social media and Sportzcast integrations.


The Billing tab allows for editing the credit card on file, reviewing proposals and invoices.



The Storage tab allows you to manage your storage bills. You may also change your storage policy from Auto-Bill to Auto-Delete, or vice versa.

API Keys

The API Keys tab provides access to your API keys for customizing and building on the BoxCast video platform.

Appearance & Apps

The Appearance & Apps tab allows you to enable your content to be viewed from BoxCast apps on Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV devices.


The Sources button will display which encoders are linked to your BoxCast account. If you own a BoxCaster, this is where it will appear.
