I've developed a couple of widgets, and more will no doubt follow. It would be great to have somewhere to share them - either free or for a nominal charge, like the appstores for iPhone/android/the other one.14 votes
Yes, we do plan to have a Widget marketplace. :-) It is great that you are interested in this, hope we have more Partners and people coming in and voting for this one!
It would be useful to have an Wifi-signal strength indicator on the Status -page. Also the name of the currently used Wifi-network name would be useful.3 votes
We will include this info in the Status page of the Monitor.
We are also planning to add WiFi scanning and other tools through the web portal, but that won’t come until late 2018.
Please allow me to switch off "Are you sure you want to push all changes to players?"
Yes, I'm sure but if I get it wrong, it's my problem or I can put it back easily. People mostly press Yes automatically anyway, so what's the point? It actually takes away from really important messages like "You are about to delete ALL data - are you sure?"
Please give us a "Don't show this again".1 vote
The “Push to Players?” button will soon be modified to show a pop-up window. In this window, you will be given the option to schedule the push; you choose if you want to push now, or do the push on a specific date/time.
We will probably incorporate your suggestion in this new popup. In the meanwhile, we might also add it in the confirmation pop-up in a following release.
Editable Default Schedule Times?
Any chance of being able to set defaults for times in schedule? Currently when I drag something onto a date it defaults to midnight to midnight, so I always have to edit the times, even though I mainly use the same timings (e.g. 07:00 - 22:00)1 vote
Sounds reasonable. We will add this in an upcoming release,. Whenever a new entry is added, the last timeframe used will be the default one.
We plan to add support for other scrolling Widgets, like feeds and more. We also plan to provide access to this through HTML5.
Please post comments with any ideas that you have.
Any chance you could look at providing 2 factor authentication for access to the WebApp. Would be great for Whitelabel Partners3 votes
We plan to add 2-factor authentication, although not in our top priorities. We are considering SMS, email, and Google Authenticator.
The ability to style ticker (expecially rss one) with Css. Also including Google Font through css3 votes
Right now, the ticker is generated via a Python drawing library and the images are scrolled using the GPU. We plan to change this to HTML-based drawing of the ticker. We could then add an option for providing custom CSS styling for the text. I guess this should work fine for you.
Ability to manually set the resolution on the pi4 votes
Right now, you need to follow this guide to change the resolution on your Player:
We will be adding all useful configuration options like this (e.g. resolution, refresh rate, audio, component-vs-HDMI, disabling on-screen warning icons, etc) as menu items within the Yodeck portal, so that you can easily change these.
Would be awesome to be able to receive monitor status alerts via Pushover. Would be pretty simple to implement. User would enter their key and then they would receive notifications for all monitors on their account. This would be especially useful for me as a reseller.3 votes
We plan to provide for more complex notifications settings. This will include mobile app notifications (not sure if it is going to be Pushover or our own app), custom email notifications, even SMS notifications.
A request to either set a custom error page or leave it black because on larger displays (billboards) the 'Unable to load page' with white background lights up a whole neighbourhood at night.1 vote
Makes perfect sense, we already had it in our backlog internally. Probably, you will be able to set an uploaded image or a Widget as the “Error Page”.
Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.10 votes
Our software fully supports 4K. The problem is with our hardware platform, the Raspberry Pi.
The Pi does not support 4K resolution out of the box. We have managed to push it to use 4K on Samsung TVs (check this link: http://support.yodeck.com/knowledgebase/articles/891513-changing-the-screen-resolution)
The problem is that 4K content is really heavy. The Pi also does not support 4K video decoding. That is why we are planning to support the Asus Tinker Board. Here is our relevant blog post: https://www.yodeck.com/news/asus-tinker-board-digital-signage/
With the Tinker Board, we might be able to provide an option that will fully support 4K resolution and 4K video decoding. Also, the Tinker board is faster and has 2GB of RAM, which would allow for more complex usage scenarios. We are partnering up with Asus to see how we could work on this to get it delivered.
A social wall widget for Instagram would be a great feature. It would be nice to pull from users Instagram photos which are location tagged to the outlet or that use particular hashtags.6 votes
Moving from One Playlist to another in a schedule is not very clean right now. If the system can either pre-load the next playlist so that it behaves like a new clip, or hold a pre-defined slide so that the screen does not go black between changes.3 votes
We do plan to improve on the time it takes to switch from one Show to the next. Doing a preload on a Show-level, has some implications, but it could work.
In the mean time, you might be served by this feature:
Finally, due to the implementation, providing for smooth Shows transition would require this feature implemented first:
We are going to mark this as Accepted, but it will take some time till you see it released.
show screen number when playing items in playlist, now showing n of x , and possibly a timer couting down to next item.2 votes
Showing Playlist-level and item-level progress could be useful. Although not a high-priority, we will be adding this.
We are also adding native PDF support shortly, so this will be beneficial in case of text content.
Would like to see the Add Images buttons duplicated at the top of the image list as well as the bottom. If I know its a new image, I shouldnt have to scroll all the way to the end to add another1 vote
Your feedback is valid. I do not know if the proposed layout is the best possible. We will have to see when we make some changes to the UI (for sure, within the next 2 months)
Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.4 votes
We do plan to provide a Yodeck Player app for Android. As you may understand, this requires a lot of effort. So, it might take several months until it gets completed. We target the end of 2017 for a first version, but it may well be 2018 until it gets released.
Onscreen keyboard widget to interact with items on you display1 vote
Yodeck has limited support for interactivity. Right now, you can build and upload HTML5 apps as Widgets, but they must not be placed as overlays in order for them to be interactive. Same goes for Web Pages.
An on-screen keyboard would be a nice addition. Given that this would require a touch screen, we would also have to implement an easy way to setup and calibrate touchscreens (can be done).
We are marking this feature as Accepted and we will see down the road how things progress.
Support right-to-left languages (like Arabic and Hebrew) for the RSS ticker1 vote
RTL support will be added soon.
Option to set an interval to refresh a Web Page.2 votes
Right now, you can refresh a web page by adding it multiple time in a Playlist. This way, the Web Page will get refreshed.
Another way to do this now is through the Web Scripting engine.
Both of these ways are no so practical, and definitely not obvious. So, we will be adding this option soon.
Building on : http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13294017-weekday-filter
we would like it to be possible to specify a specific number of days for the "Every" field (recurrence).
Many restaurants use a menu that cycles either weekly, biweekly, triweekly, etc. (In most cases here we have a tri-weekly menu rotation). What would be great in the scheduler is to be able to schedule a show “Every Monday” or to repeat “Every 3rd Monday” for example. Microsoft Task Scheduler in Windows is an example of how this would work.9 votes
