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.2 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.
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.
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.1 vote
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 preview capability would be an amazing help. Right now there's no way to see a show without pushing it to a real monitor.36 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.
Add audio as a separate asset. I want to play a song behind my graphic slides21 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.
It would be great if there were a way to send power on or off CEC commands when your monitor doesn't come on.15 votes
Move to “Accepted” state. We will be adding some action buttons soon, like “Shutdown”, “Reboot”, etc, so we will add these also.
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?59 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.
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.14 votes
We will be gradually adding Widget. For sure, it will include social feeds.
Would be great to have 4k 25Hz support.
Otherwise this is the best digital signage software i have tested.2 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.
Internet USB key auto connection.4 votes
Currently, we set up any 3G/4G USB dongle manually for paid customers.
We do not yet have access to an extended set of USB dongle, so that we can test them in detail. But we plan to provide some elementary support for them through the UI (at least for some brands/models).
When it changes from one show to another we go to black screen, it would be nice that the user can setup its own background instead of Black, could be colors or images.5 votes
Turns out that setting a solid color background or setting an image as a background is easy. We will provide this option soon.
Ability to have a Master Playlist that can play sub-playlists. (i.e. for Real Estate).
-- Master Playlist -- Current Listings
-- 123 Maple St. Listing
-- 590 Maroon Bell Ave. Listing
-- 9029 E. Main St.20 votes
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…
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.1 vote
Support right-to-left languages (like Arabic and Hebrew) for the RSS ticker1 vote
RTL support will be added 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.5 votes
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.7 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.1 vote
Option to set an interval to refresh a Web Page.0 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.
Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.1 vote
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.
We have Beamer they not hear on the CEC Command, they have only a Interface for Relais for commands, is there a way to use the gpio's to trigger 2 Relais on schedule start and at the end to off? At this time we have there 2 Raspberrys. One for Yodeck and one for a time based solution but in one device it would be great :D
Best wishes1 vote
If you want to use this for turning the beamer on/ and off, then you can create a custom power script. Whenever the “Turned Off” special Show is used, you would set the GPIO pin accordingly. Here are the details: https://www.yodeck.com/docs/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=327908
Overall, we plan to provide access to GPIO pins through Custom Widgets, so we are keeping this idea as accepted,
- Don't see your idea?
