Add the ability to place shows in a playlist
This would really be the icing on the cake, as far as flexibility is concerned.
For example, if I have a clock widget it is a set colour for the entire show, so if the background changes to a similar colour (and the widget's background is transparent), it becomes invisible.
Being able to add shows to a playlist would cure this, and enable other things that multiple layouts would bring.
We are making some changes in our playback engine that might make this feature possible.
For sure, we are planning to provide an option to time-sync Playlists. This would allow you to create Playlists of Playlists, and sync the “master” Playlists. Combined with the special playlist item “Hide Playlist”, you could also change the layout.
Of course, this is rather complex, but it will be possible.
After this is possible, for providing a complete Show Sequence feature, it is more of a matter of strategy concerning simplicity of the platform; adding such a feature would complicate the user experience. But it is something that we will definitely consider.
Yes, in piSignage you can setup your multi item layouts in playlists and have playlists follow each other on continuous loop. I REALLY need this option sooner than later to make Yodeck do what I need to do... and the idea of doing it via schedules on loop of around 2 minutes is too scary to think about.... that’s going to take forever to schedule!!
Playlist of Shows
This would be an awesome idea! We would like to do a full-screen "splash" followed by a typical digital signage layout with 1/4 & 1/2 screens. Basically add a full-screen image/Playlist within a show.
One should be able to make a playlist of different shows/layouts in "playlists".
