  1. provide a quick mechanism to override the current schedule

    I am envisioning something like exists on a typical programmable thermostat, which allow you to override the schedule without actually editing the schedule. I am using the signs in a church, and most of the time the schedule works well, however if there is a special service day or time change, I'd like to be able to say "play show X now" - either forever or until a certain time. After I cancel the override, or the time is reached, then the normal schedule resumes.

    Currently the only way I seem to be able to do this is to modify…

  2. Restrict Media to specific time

    I want to build a tag based playlist, where in the morning comes picture A and in the evening picture B. I can them both with "Tag Morning" and "Tag Evening". And build two playlists. But i think it can be easier to set a time or date range, like in the scheduler, right in the media settings. So that Picture A is only showed in the morning.
    Is this possible?

  4. make it easier to use OR operations when filtering media for a tag based playlist.

    Having to click Add More to in order to filter by OR is kind of confusing. The phrase "add more" doesn't seem to suggest that OR is an option and I didn't find anything on the support pages to suggest this is how I would filter with OR. I think it would be easier to navigate if you could just choose the operator AND/OR between tags in the list.

    In order to provide Live Chat support, we need to have tech support agents available 24/7. Right now, we are generally available through email between 4am-4pm (US Eastern time) on weekdays and same hours for urgent issues on weekends. We are planning to extend this to cover the whole 24 hours as soon as we have the resources required.

    We are considering to add this feature to Yodeck.

    Specifically, you will need to add a web camera or a Raspberry Pi Camera and use Google Coral, a USB AI module that does analytics and demographics of viewers. Total additional cost for hardware per screen would be something around $100. And you would get a) reports on number of viewers and demographics, b) triggers to change content based on demographic groups (e.g. ads targeting males over 50).

    We love this feature, but, to be honest, it is a bit down the road, likely for Q1-Q2 2020. Hope you stay on board to see it getting released!

  8. 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 have devised a new approach to this feature request. We will be providing the ability to have multiple “Slides” per Layout. Right inside the Layout Editor, you will be able to add new empty “Slides”, essentially making Layouts a kind of a “Slide” deck. You will be able to populate these Slides either by coping/pasting items from other Layouts, duplicate a whole Slide from the current Layout or another Layout, or import a Layout from our Templates.

    We are currently completing an internal refactoring of our Playback Engine, so this will hopefully get released towards Q4-2020! Stay tuned!

    We do provide an option for a custom power script that allows you to override the way screen powering on/off works.

    For what else would that make sense? Please provide more context and use-cases so that we can investigate in detail and evaluate how we could do something like this.

  11. Smart playlists to automatically play images in a specific folder

    Smart Playlists - Automatically play all images in a specific folder. This will eliminate the extra step of adding new images to a playlist after loading them.

    We already have support for Tag-based Playlist. It allows you to create a Playlist that pulls in all Media based on combinations of Media Tags. So, you can upload Media, tag them, and Playlists are updated automatically.

    The Tag-based Playlists feature is available under the “Pro” plan.

    We are thinking about using Folders in a similar way.

  15. New widget for news feed

    I suggest a new widget for non-scrolling text for news / RSS Feed, which would display the entire message for 5 - 10 seconds.

    We are growing the Yodeck team with more developers and designers. Within September, we will start working on existing Widgets to make them better looking and more efficient. And we will also start working on new Widgets.

    Stay tuned!

    Developing an app for performing basic functions and receiving notifications is in our plans, but it is a low priority. The Yodeck portal works ok under a mobile web browser, so it is not a hard requirement to develop such an app.

  17. Create a widget store

    I've developed a couple of widgets, and more will no doubt follow. It would be great to have somewhere to share them - either free or for a nominal charge, like the appstores for iPhone/android/the other one.

  18. Object Borders

    It would be nice to be able to add a border to whatever you place in the show and have it resize with the window. I've managed to create some borders in another program, but am having a time trying to get the border placement to correctly match the window placement. Being able to change the line thickness of the border and color as well as perhaps add rounded corners would be a plus.
