Software update: Media Tags and more!

Yodeck - Media tags and more!

After last month’s extravaganza with the launch of our new Pro and Enterprise plans, plus a bunch of new features released, we decided it was time for some spring polishing up this time. So yes, media tags and more in our latest update!

Our previous release took a bit longer, so we’ve got this one out to you in just 4 weeks. It comes with countless improvements under the hood, but there’s also some great noteworthy new features as well.

As always, our aim is to help you improve the way you work with Yodeck and we think you’ll enjoy our latest update installment.

Media Tags & Tag Management

Media tags and management

Tags are great for managing all sort of things. We already support tags for Monitors, but tags in Media are even more useful.

For now, you can use them for categorizing and managing large collections of Media. In 6 weeks time, we will release Tag-based Playlists for the Pro and Enterprise plans.

Also, if you use tags a lot, you might end up with older tags piled up and becoming a nuisance. You can now delete Tags you no longer need, or even rename them, without affecting Tag assignments to Devices or Media.

Bulk Editing Media Properties

With the arrival of Media Tags comes the ability to give you bulk editing of Media properties. You can now select multiple Media and massively change their Tags, and/or change their Activation/Expiration dates. Nice eh?

Advanced Options for SAML

We know, SAML can be tedious to setup. Standard configuration options do not always work out of the box.

That’s why we have ehanced the SAML configuration in Yodeck with a few advanced settings. These improvements will make it easier for you to set it up with any kind of SAML Identity Provider. And, of course, our support team is always available to help you out.
