Birthday employees ?23 votes
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.
Yodeck currently works only on the Raspberry Pi hardware platform. It would be great to have Yodeck on Android-powered devices.32 votes
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.
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.
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".4 votes
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.
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.
We plan to add support for other scrolling Widgets, like feeds and more. We also plan to provide access to this through HTML5.
Please post comments with any ideas that you have.

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.28 votes
Support right-to-left languages (like Arabic and Hebrew) for the RSS ticker12 votes
RTL support will be added soon.
Would be nice to have API access to your account in different ways.
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 :p62 votes
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.
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.7 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.
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.
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.9 votes
We have started working on this! Content transitions, either when pushing updated content or when changing content due to scheduling, will be dynamically loading, so content won’t go through that balck screen!
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.32 votes
We will be gradually adding Widget. For sure, it will include social feeds.
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.
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 wishes6 votes
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,
Onscreen keyboard widget to interact with items on you display3 votes
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.
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.22 votes
Turns out that setting a solid color background or setting an image as a background is easy. We will provide this option soon.
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.
Multiple video areas38 votes
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!
