Show preview capability would be an amazing help. Right now there's no way to see a show without pushing it to a real monitor.29 votes
We will be providing 2 distinct features for accommodating this need:
First, we will allow paid accounts to use an extra (free) test Monitor. This test monitor will regularly show an overlay of the Yodeck logo on top of content, so it will not be suitable to be used as public display. It will be used solely for testing out changes to Monitors before pushing.
Then, we will be developing a full-fledge Web Player. This Web Player will have a unique URL which you will be able to open up on any browser. From that point on, you will be able to manage content displayed as with any other Pi-based Player. We will then use this Player to also display a one-time preview of the Show.
Hope this works for all of you guys. Please be kind enough to leave a comment if you think otherwise.
Ability to have a Master Playlist that can play sub-playlists. (i.e. for Real Estate).
-- Master Playlist -- Current Listings
-- 123 Maple St. Listing

Sub-playlists are indeed required.
We will be probably adding SubPlaylists as a new type of playlist. So, you will have:
- Playlists (accept Media and SubPlaylists as items)
- SubPlaylists (accept only Media as items)
This is only 2-levels deep; no Playlists of SubPlaylists of SubPlaylists, and so on…
Add audio as a separate asset. I want to play a song behind my graphic slides14 votes
We will provide:
1) audio files you upload, as a new Media type
2) audio tracks from Youtube videos, as a new Media type
3) audio management for Shows – you will be able to add a Playlist that will only provide audio
Additionally, we will provide audio device management, so you will be able to Mute the Player, change the output volume, and more.
Since SD storage is limited, it would be great to add support for expanding storage through USB drives3 votes
Support and requests for this feature is quite low, so we are freezing it for now… most users are ok with a standard 8GB SD card, while they can also get a 32GB card with lots of space.
Provide some premade scrolling footer content -
Weather - enter ZipCode;
Stock - select up to x stock symbols;
Latest News (like Fox News Channel);
Airport info;5 votes
The ticker (scrolling text) Widget will support any RSS feed. We will be including a menu with many popular RSS feeds.

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.1 vote
Time Format on Digital Clock can this be made to Display 12 hour format and drop the seconds?
ie... 3:00 PM4 votes
We will add these options soon. In the meantime, if you are up to it, you can download the Widget code, edit it, to fit your requirements!

Social Media Wall widgets for all the main social media sites will be key...even better, a social media feed aggregator!! I'd like a google calendar widget...a free form static box text widget would be great as well.7 votes
We will be gradually adding Widget. For sure, it will include social feeds.
Ad agencies need reports on what has been played back. We need exact reports on what has played.11 votes
This will be implemented soon. We will provide detailed reports on actual playback.
I suggest a simple weather widget that could be used on our displays. Nothing fancy - just the current weather and perhaps the next 5 days?56 votes
We will be releasing a full-fledged Weather widget soon.
In the mean time, you can now find a (local only) weather Widget based on the web widget provided by Accuweather.com. This is available on the production site right now.
Overall, we are planning to provide a better Weather Widget, that will perform much better, work offline, show forecasts, etc, so we will not be closing this idea yet.
Make it easier to schedule certain times for the entire week/month/year by giving a weekday filter, which would apply the playlist/item you are wanting to schedule to certain days of the week (IE, Mon-Fri/Mon-Sat)
Would also work for hours, for example, if I want to play a "Happy Hour Specials" playlist between 14:00-16:00 Tues-Thurs, I would only have to enter it once to perform such task.11 votes
We will be adding this, it is really useful.
idea: if you have multiple monitors, it would be great to see the last screenshot in the Monitorslist3 votes
We will add this, it is really useful. Check out also another feature request for a special multi-view of all screenshots in a single screen.
Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.
Get - Get access to your account data & configurations. Connect to the API to get configurations & information of your players.
POST - Send show commands to the API. to change between shows on different players.
Longshot.. But would be nice :p3 votes
Our whole backend (server) provides an RESTful HTTP API. This is currently used only by our UI, the User Interface that our users see on their screen.
This API needs to be documented and polished up, but it is (more or less) already usable for special purposes. We will just provide you with a access token.
We are planning to release a fully documented API spec within Q2-2017.
Would be nice to see the length of a video from the folder view.2 votes
Indeed, provide metadata for Media would be really useful. Besides video duration, it would be really useful to also know video resolution, FPS, download size, average bitrate, etc.
It would be great if there were a way to send power on or off CEC commands when your monitor doesn't come on.14 votes
Move to “Accepted” state. We will be adding some action buttons soon, like “Shutdown”, “Reboot”, etc, so we will add these also.
Sometime, you do something and "Submit to Players?" turns red. And you log in a few days later, feeling nervous about what you actually did and why that button is red. It would be great if you could undo all the changes made on an account and revert it back to the last time the "Push to Players?" button was clicked, so it would "put out" the red button.
Initial Idea Submitted was: "Trash option for deleted media, playlist and shows. It gives the oportunity to restore back links which you delete accidentally."1 vote
While the initial idea of a trash bin for object is difficult to implement and has several implications, the current idea is very useful and will provide an extra level of safety for what is displayed on screen.
Also, it will eliminate the need for the automated email that are send to users leaving the “Push to Players?” button unclicked.
Some location on Yodeck.com that describes the current acute problem(s) with the site and to the extent possible and indication that the problem(s) are being worked on.
This would avoid the need to continually bug support staff to report the same problem because it isn't yet fixed, etc.3 votes
This would be indeed a great addition. Currently, we have several different subsystems, so it would be good to have an overview is something is wrong or not. We will definitely need to add service status reporting, as well as maintenance/updates schedule.
An overall dashboard showing all thumbnails from all devices would be great. It would provide a quick view if devices show what they are supposed to show.0 votes
