  1. Google calendar data source

    Google Calendar entries for a number of days (from current day only - or possibly current half-day only).
    To be shown as a list of 1 or more scrolling (if necessary) entries or as a ticker. With configurable display elements date, time, title, description, where. Also configurable separators (like your ticker).
    Example 1: I would use it for a "Welcome" list of today's (or morning/afternoon) visitors.
    Example 2: Also for a list of upcoming exhibitions.
    Using google as a source of times events allows anyone with access to that the ability to make Yodeck entries without getting into your quite…

  2. Container clip for random media

    It would be great to have a container item to add into playlist for play random videos. For example a container with promotional clips or ads.
    The idea is to play 1 random clip and then next media in my playlist.
    Example:


    • Logo

    • General info

    • Container (1 random ad from folder "my-ads")

    • Product clip

    • Container (1 random promo from folder "my-promos")

    • ... and so on

    We have implemented our new playback engine, a long-due task that will provide more flexibility in the way we handle playback! So, what does this provide??

    - Random Playback for any playlist
    - Restrictions for Sub-Playlists: Max-Time and Max-Items

    All three can be combined to have the effect described by the original poster of the idea. Random playback is available under all plans. Sub-Playlists are only available in the “Pro” and “Enterprise” plans, so you will need to be on that plan to use it.

    We are releasing this on our Beta customers next week and will make it available for everyone on Nov 19, 2020.

  3. Provide a Player App for Android (for compatible Smart TVs, TV Boxes, Tablets and Smartphones)

    Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.

    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.

  4. Queue system

    I would like to have to possibillity to integrate with a queue system.
    A remote or button with +/- and show a number in the screen. As a system like Easy Turn or so.

  5. Please, allow me to switch off "Are you sure?"

    Please allow me to switch off "Are you sure you want to push all changes to players?"
    Yes, I'm sure but if I get it wrong, it's my problem or I can put it back easily. People mostly press Yes automatically anyway, so what's the point? It actually takes away from really important messages like "You are about to delete ALL data - are you sure?"
    Please give us a "Don't show this again".

    The “Push to Players?” button will soon be modified to show a pop-up window. In this window, you will be given the option to schedule the push; you choose if you want to push now, or do the push on a specific date/time.

    We will probably incorporate your suggestion in this new popup. In the meanwhile, we might also add it in the confirmation pop-up in a following release.

    There are a lot of ideas for Widgets. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to create all of the Widgets that our customers need. That is why we provide the ability to create your own Custom Widget:

    https://www.yodeck.com/docs/display/YO/Custom+Widget+Developer%27s+Guide

    The Widget you are proposing can be easily created. Within the Widget UI, you would enter the name and birthday of each employee and the Widget would display it easily.

    Reach out if you need help with the development. We are marking this as “under review” only to keep this request and see if it can get more traction down the road.

    If you are talking about additional font for the Web Page viewer, we would need more information. Perhaps, this is resolved by the addition of Chromium browser (check this idea: http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/13794672-ability-to-render-more-advanced-web-content)

    If you are talking about the RSS Ticker, we plan to add support for a Unicode font, so that all characters can be rendered (Chinese being the most problematic one right now).

    Please provide more feedback on this.

  9. Add the ability to specify a specific number of days in a schedule.

    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.

  11. API to connect to your subscription / Account / Management

    Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.

    Examples:

    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 :p

    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.

  12. Monitor alerts via Pushover

    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.

    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.

  13. Enable user-agent modification

    I'm writing a ddns javascript widget. It's working, but my ddns provider prefers that a custom user-agent header is sent with the http request.

    At present, changing this is denied by the browser. Could it be enabled, please?

  14. Playlist/Shows Transitions

    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.

    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:

    http://support.yodeck.com/forums/301815-general/suggestions/16357123-custom-background-for-schedule

    Finally, due to the implementation, providing for smooth Shows transition would require this feature implemented first:

    https://yodeck.uservoice.com/admin/forums/301815-general/suggestions/16208410-master-playlists-that-can-play-multiple-sub-playli

    We are going to mark this as Accepted, but it will take some time till you see it released.

  15. Widget ideas

    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.

    Although it sounds interesting, this feature needs refinement.

    In the new version to be released this week, we do have a text Widget. You could add this text Widget to all Shows on top of all other content. You would set it to transparent background and do not type anything. Then, when ever you wanted to sent a message, you would edit the Widget, type the message, and push to all devices. But would this suffice as an “emergency broadcast”?

    If you are interested in this feature, please leave more comments and discuss further.

  17. GPIO support

    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 wishes

    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.

  19. Custom background for Schedule.

    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.

  20. Provide transition effects

    Would like ability to do basic effects like crossfades between images in a playlist. I can do this by making a video of slides and that works great, but a feature like this would be better.

    This is our oldest request, created back in Jan 2016 when we had 0 paying customers (yeap, that is a zero). We wish it was so easy to implement that we would do it during that first year. But the time has come!

    On Nov 19th, we are releasing our new playback engine to all users. We had to break up the Player code between the “logic” and the actual playback on screens. It was a requirement so that we can release new features without messing around with the tens of thousands of Players out there.

    As soon as this is out of the way, we will be working to support transitions between images. We know that this is an important feature for all of you receiving this message, so we want to provide as much insight as possible.

    Initially, we will focus on simple transitions, like cross-fade, fade-through-black, and…
