Add a calendar that can be managed through Yodeck7 votes
We have created a script for the Scripting Engine that uses Google Calendar and removes excessive stuff, headers, footers, etc. We have been using it internally for our meeting room for 3-4 months now and it seems to work fine. We will be sharing that next week on a post.
Concerning an inherent calendar Widget, it would be difficult to provide it within Yodeck. But I guess that if we supported an ICS calendar, you could use Google calendar and that Widget could pull info from that. I think that would be sufficient, right?
We need to mask the wifi passwords...less privileged admins should never see this.4 votes
We are planning to separate the part of the CMS-related device configuration, from the rest of the configuration that has to do with installation and networking. So, you will be able to provide someone with access to devices without allowing them to mess around with network or other configuration.
I guess this will do just fine, right?
Are there plans to support Asus Tinkerboard?1 vote
We have been planning to add support for the Tinker board, but demand for 4K has been low, so it has been left behind in our schedule.
Different devices have different capabilities and restrictions. So, we first need to add support for device types within the Portal itself, so that the app can enforce or warn about these restrictions.
As soon as this is provided, we would add support for the Tinker Board as well as other Pi versions based on different CPUs (Pi 1, Pi Zero, etc)
At present, changing this is denied by the browser. Could it be enabled, please?1 vote
Tomorrow, we are releasing Chrome support for Custom Widgets. Would that work for you?
Nevertheless, this is a valid request to be considered.
I would like to have to possibillity to integrate with a queue system.
A remote or button with +/- and show a number in the screen. As a system like Easy Turn or so.4 votes
We are considering this feature as a premium Widget in Yodeck. As soon as we have feedback, we will update this suggestion.
I find the black gap between videos or images is too short. I've been adding in 2 second black slides to help but it would be nice if we could customize the length of time between for the black gap instead of only having it preset.1 vote
The duration of the black gap is not entirely under our control right now. Your request is reasonable though.
We are planning a major internal change to the Player’s software that will allow us finer control of the playback procedure. I will leave this request open so that I can update it if we get any update from the dev team if it is feasible or not.
To simplify widget installation, it would be nice if the back-end could look for a json file (maybe ui.json or schema.json) in the widget's zip file, and import it automatically into the UI configuration area if it exists.1 vote
Sounds reasonable, but it is difficult to implement this feature now. Uploaded zip packages are delivered directly to our cloud storage, not going through the application server. We would have to extract the JSON UI Schema file from the package. And this would also have other workflow issues (what happens if it is broken, etc).
I am leaving this feature here to see what traction it gets from other users.
Birthday employees ?4 votes
There are a lot of ideas for Widgets. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to create all of the Widgets that our customers need. That is why we provide the ability to create your own Custom Widget:
The Widget you are proposing can be easily created. Within the Widget UI, you would enter the name and birthday of each employee and the Widget would display it easily.
Reach out if you need help with the development. We are marking this as “under review” only to keep this request and see if it can get more traction down the road.
Additional Fonts8 votes
If you are talking about additional font for the Web Page viewer, we would need more information. Perhaps, this is resolved by the addition of Chromium browser (check this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13794672-ability-to-render-more-advanced-web-content)
If you are talking about the RSS Ticker, we plan to add support for a Unicode font, so that all characters can be rendered (Chinese being the most problematic one right now).
Please provide more feedback on this.
This feature request has several implications.
First of all, it has little to do with CEC. The same request could be asking for USB IR remotes (which are internally handled by Linux as keyboard presses).
Right now, our playback engine is fully automated. This means that, you cannot affect the playback status of a playlist (move forward, backwards, etc). But, we plan to refactor the Player shortly to allow for different Playlist management.
So, while this is not a core-feature to add, it will probably be possible to add it via a Custom Widget. So, we will leave it here to check it out when the time comes.
Broadcast an immediate message on all screens or a group of screens.4 votes
Although it sounds interesting, this feature needs refinement.
In the new version to be released this week, we do have a text Widget. You could add this text Widget to all Shows on top of all other content. You would set it to transparent background and do not type anything. Then, when ever you wanted to sent a message, you would edit the Widget, type the message, and push to all devices. But would this suffice as an “emergency broadcast”?
If you are interested in this feature, please leave more comments and discuss further.
Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?3 votes
One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.
Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.
I find it really strange that these Yodeck Playboxes don't come in a VESA mount case.
This is for digital signage and 99% of customer's will want to mount their Pi onto the back of their display.
I'm having to find other ways of mounting it onto the TV such as taping it on or cable tie.
I could even be better off buying a VESA case for £4 and just swapping cases so I can mount it onto the back of the display.4 votes
We are considering to provide additional options for cases. VESA could be an option.
It would be great to have a container item to add into playlist for play random videos. For example a container with promotional clips or ads.
The idea is to play 1 random clip and then next media in my playlist.
- General info
- Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")
- Product clip
- Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")
- ... and so on11 votes
We are planning to provide a) sub-playlists b) random playback.
Subplaylists will be used as items in regular Playlists. Both Playlists and SubPlaylists will have the option to be played back randomly. And when you will add SubPlaylists to a Playlist, you will have the option to say “Play 3 items from this SubPlaylist” or “Play 1 hour from this SubPlaylist”.
That’s the design we currently have in mind, I think it is pretty close to final.
Drag and drop content upload. Better then trawling through files and folders.1 vote
We already had this feature, but it did not work correctly in some browsers.
We will review it again and update you.
Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.2 votes
Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:
1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
2) normalize volume for all Media
Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.
Now that multi-user and monitor groups exists, add granularity to assign specific monitor groups to specific users19 votes
Adding such detailed level of control for Devices (but also for Media, Playlist, Shows, Schedules, etc) is in our long-term plans. We will eventually support it, at least for devices.
I wouldn't mind being able to change the default slide time for when you add new slides. Rather than having to change it from 5 secs each time. Cheers!3 votes
You can change to “Folder View” and massively change duration for all your slides.
But yes, this could be useful as an option for each User.
Capacity to add multiple links of youtube at once and/ or use youtube channels with list of videos11 votes
Currently, we have no way to know that what the users has specified can indeed be fitted on the SD card storage. Providing an easy way to add tens or hundreds of YouTube videos, would probably cause issues. But we are looking into it and we will probably provide this in the near future.
Ability to post videos that are on FB - the webpage option doesn't work for FB videos. YouTube video links work perfectly.1 vote
We have not made any tests with Facebook videos. We will have to look into it in more detail.
