It would be great to be able to schedule an auto reboot. Some of my players need to be rebooted 2 or 3 times a week.7 votes
You are now able to schedule a time of the day and days of the week to perform a scheduled reboot. This is available under the details of each player configuration through the Yodeck dashboard.
Option to manually enter WIFI name and password directly to "Player". This would be really appreciated.
e.g.: Client connects keyboard and mouse. After pressing some keyboard shortcut(e.g. ALT+W) graphic window will pop up and allow to choose wifi and set password.31 votes
Took us a while, but this is now available. You can hit Ctrl+F12 and configure the WiFi connection on screen. Exact instructions will be made available shortly here: https://www.yodeck.com/docs/display/YO/9.2.2+Configuring+your+WiFi+network+by+using+the+Player%27s+WiFi+wizard
Is there a plan to add social media widgets? I saw someone post an idea for a widget store but if a default twitter widget were available that could be very useful. Mentions on one display and a complete twitter feed on the other would be ideal.28 votes
The Twitter widget is out and ready to roll!
Feel free to log in to your Yodeck account and create this awesome widget!
Seeing that a new push is downloading is great, but it would be nice to see more detail - MBs remaining, time remaining, percentage to 100%, etc.8 votes
We now provide the content status of your Players. You can see through the Portal if a Player is downloading, is up to date, or outdated (e.g. when being offline), scheduled to download, etc. This provides more confidence, so that you know that Players have been updated even if they got offline, and that the Push went through fine to all Players.
This will be available to all Users in our upcoming release, scheduled for April 12th, 2019.
Playlists that contain media of various aspect ratios inevitably have empty space when the content is scaled to fit.
With images, the extraneous space is transparent, which looks great. For videos and PDFs, the empty space is filled in black. This doesn't look so hot. This is the only major issue we're waiting on to roll out now, so a fix would be very much appreciated when possible.
This fix has been released! Videos now respect the Transparency setting, even if changing aspect ratio.
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.38 votes
The Instagram Widget is now available! You can use it to display feed from hashtags, users and locations! You can display top posts, or a live feed with new posts on your screens!
I just need to speak with someone on the phone to help me through the setup process. Just need quick help without going through email!3 votes
We do provide a phone number that you can call and ask for assistance:(+1) 415-992-6050
On the other hand, we do recommend reaching out through our ticketing system. This ensures that our tech guys will see your request. The phone is answered by Customer Success, so they cannot resolve deep technical issues.
Adding monitor groups would allow a user to group monitors and massively assign schedules to them.9 votes
We have released tag-based management of monitors, so mass management is possible. And you can treat tags exactly like groups.
We will also add an option to “pin” several tags to the monitor’s list, so that you can have quick click-only access to some favorite groups.
When playing a playlist of images or videos, the content is cropped to cover the whole area specified in the show editor. There should be an option to fit content inside the area. This way, when showing both landscape-sized and portrait-sized content in the same playlist, they will not be cropped and everything will show up correctly.3 votes
Some pages may not look nice when used in a hi-res display through Yodeck. Adding a zoom factor will allow to modify the page so that it is more readable.1 vote
It's a very important thing to keep the cookies after reboot.11 votes
A new option is now available under Web Page Media to allow for saving session/cookies data across reboots.
Would be nice to have an option for outgoing IPSEC or sstp vpn connectivity to a custom vpn server.
Reason for this : Multiple installations across client sites, network monitoring (device ping would be great) and ssh login without need from customer site network reconfiguration or port forwarding.1 vote
We already provide this option to our Partners! You can setup an OpenVPN-based VPN connection to an online server, and this can be automatically configure to all devices in your partner account.

We are planning to use Yodeck on big LED displays which are built with 32x32 modules. It works fine otherwise, but it's not very intuitive if aspect ratio does not match on the Show editor.
For example, display has 480*96 resolution. This is 16:3.2 .. Yodeck has choices 16:4.5 and 16:3, which means 480x135 or 480x90. When editing with 16:4.5, you have to remember not put anything on the bottom or it won't be visible.
So, why can't I set the aspect ratio to any custom values?3 votes
Support for custom aspect ratios has been released. It should make managing non-typical screens, video walls, and LED matrix displays much easier.
option for turning TV on and off should be implemented, and it should have support for manual and automatic manipulation1 vote
We support turning the screen On/Off using the special “Turned Off” Show. We are also releasing end of July a new version that allows you to explicitly turn the TV on/off using a button.
I am closing this as completed, since the release of half the request is imminent.
Info about the CSS customization1 vote
We provide full CSS customization. Out of the box, this is available as a feature to our Whitelabel reselling partners, so that they can use their own branding. We do not see frequent requests on CSS customization by direct customers for their own organization.
I am closing this request as completed, since it is already possible. If you need CSS customization, reach out to our tech support with your request and we may be able to accommodate it.
Would it be possible to add an "Duplicate screen" button to the Monitor page? This way the settings could be copied form an existing screen. The name and registration number for the new screen could be given for example in an popup dialog.3 votes
This is now available! You can duplicate Monitors to copy all configuration and useful information when creating new screens.
I would like to set a custom script (Advanced Player Directives) for multiple displays with one command.3 votes
This is now available! You can bulk-edit this field as any other configuration field of Monitors.
Countdown timer Widget12 votes
This Widget is now available! You can count down or count up!
If I can save videos in subfolders, I should be able to access those subfolders when making playlists. Otherwise, whats the point of subfolders?1 vote
You need to enable the “Folder View” toggle on the top-right corner of the Playlist editor.
Go ahead and edit a playlist. If you enable the "Folder View toggle while in the editor, you will see a different user interface that allows you to use folder and manage higher number of Media easily.
It would be great to have remote access to the pi OS via the web portal (piSignage supports it).
Sometimes I need to reboot, or remotely shut down, and there's no way at the moment.28 votes
Users now have a “Reboot” and “Shutdown” action within the Monitor details.
We still do not provide remote shell, but it is possible to do so. If you think there is a need for that, please post a new suggestion on the forum.
