To simplify widget installation, it would be nice if the back-end could look for a json file (maybe ui.json or schema.json) in the widget's zip file, and import it automatically into the UI configuration area if it exists.1 vote
Sounds reasonable, but it is difficult to implement this feature now. Uploaded zip packages are delivered directly to our cloud storage, not going through the application server. We would have to extract the JSON UI Schema file from the package. And this would also have other workflow issues (what happens if it is broken, etc).
I am leaving this feature here to see what traction it gets from other users.
At present, changing this is denied by the browser. Could it be enabled, please?4 votes
Tomorrow, we are releasing Chrome support for Custom Widgets. Would that work for you?
Nevertheless, this is a valid request to be considered.

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:
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.
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.15 votes
We are considering this feature as a premium Widget in Yodeck. As soon as we have feedback, we will update this suggestion.
I find the black gap between videos or images is too short. I've been adding in 2 second black slides to help but it would be nice if we could customize the length of time between for the black gap instead of only having it preset.1 vote
The duration of the black gap is not entirely under our control right now. Your request is reasonable though.
We are planning a major internal change to the Player’s software that will allow us finer control of the playback procedure. I will leave this request open so that I can update it if we get any update from the dev team if it is feasible or not.
Additional Fonts13 votes
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.
This feature request has several implications.
First of all, it has little to do with CEC. The same request could be asking for USB IR remotes (which are internally handled by Linux as keyboard presses).
Right now, our playback engine is fully automated. This means that, you cannot affect the playback status of a playlist (move forward, backwards, etc). But, we plan to refactor the Player shortly to allow for different Playlist management.
So, while this is not a core-feature to add, it will probably be possible to add it via a Custom Widget. So, we will leave it here to check it out when the time comes.
Will you have a widget to display a conference schedule / agenda., eg. Speaker Jones, Room 20 @ 1pm.. etc?7 votes
One way to do this would be to use the Richtext Widget and paste your HTML. Right now, it is not so easy to do, but eventually it will be. Also, we do plan to provide some templates for fixed layouts (HTML templates) which you will be able to edit within the Widget. One of them could be a scheduling template.
Perhaps this is more close to the scheduling concept? Waiting for your feedback to dig in.
Broadcast an immediate message on all screens or a group of screens.11 votes
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.
Adjust Sound of video clips to the same level, this will be helpful when you insert several music videos for example from youtube, so you get similar or same level of all videos.5 votes
Audio normalization could be implemented in two levels:
1) provide a volume slider in each video entry, so that you can differentiate volume per Media
2) normalize volume for all Media
Both ways are right now unknown, and we have not had enough testing to say if any of the two is feasible. As soon as we do, we will update you here.
I wouldn't mind being able to change the default slide time for when you add new slides. Rather than having to change it from 5 secs each time. Cheers!3 votes
You can change to “Folder View” and massively change duration for all your slides.
But yes, this could be useful as an option for each User.
Ability to post videos that are on FB - the webpage option doesn't work for FB videos. YouTube video links work perfectly.4 votes
We have not made any tests with Facebook videos. We will have to look into it in more detail.
Capacity to add multiple links of youtube at once and/ or use youtube channels with list of videos13 votes
Currently, we have no way to know that what the users has specified can indeed be fitted on the SD card storage. Providing an easy way to add tens or hundreds of YouTube videos, would probably cause issues. But we are looking into it and we will probably provide this in the near future.
add gps usb to the raspi and to show the gps location on a map on the screen, that help in transportation.7 votes
It would be really interesting to provide this feature. We will look into it and let you know.
Can you add the options to schedule a show every: hour, quarter and/or every ... minutes.
We like to show a standard show which will be overruled by a dedicated show every ´x´ minutes. Now we can't use the scheduler for that.
Thanks in advance.64 votes
This is indeed in our plans. We will add support for recurrence in hours and minutes. Thank you for your suggestion!
