Have you seen the new redesign for our List views? It looks absolutely fabulous, if we do say so ourselves. Of course, beauty isn’t skin deep, so we made sure they also got great new functionalities. And we think you’ll love how much smoother managing your screens and content will be.

Firstly, you can now see your files and folders in one view, in both row and grid mode. Specifically, in row view you can see your item details, while in grid view you can get an overview of more items in each category, at a glance. Most importantly, navigation got so much easier. Just click or double-click anywhere on the file to open it. Also, the entire List view experience is mobile-friendly too!

All these signage superpowers to help you with your daily tasks, with a super sleek look to boot! So please let us know what you think!

Release Notes

New features

  • Blow out the candles with our new Birthday Widget! It’s an easy way for companies to celebrate their team members’ special day, using their signage screens. Most importantly, users just upload a CSV file with all the birthdays so that the whole process is personalized and automatic. Also, we have a number of customizations for you to choose from.
  • Welcome the brand new PosterMyWall Widget! Users can now display all the impressive templates they create using this service, on their Yodeck screens, quickly and easily. Just copy the Yodeck link from PosterMyWall, and then paste it into our Widget to get it on your signage screens.

Improvements

  • We know you’ll love our new Purchase Wizard! It’s super easy to use, and it also makes it simple to choose how many RPi players you’ll need from us and how many screens you want to operate with a Web Player or your own equipment. When purchasing Annual plans, you get the RPi players for free and a $20 Discount Coupon for every screen operating with a Web Player or your equipment, for the 1st year of your subscription.
  • Our Listings redesign is also finally here. It looks sleek and polished, and you can view files and folders in either grid or row view. It’s also mobile friendly and gives you an overview in each category, such as media, Widgets, Playlists, screens and Layouts!
  • The Yodeck Web Player now supports Web Widgets! All your favorite data dashboards can now get displayed with the Web Player, too. Also, it supports web scripting, which means you can run your own JavaScript code inside the web page.
  • In addition, as of this release, Playlists will reload only the regions of a screen layout that have changes. Why? Because prior to this improvement, the entire screen layout got reloaded every time there was a change to the content, which did not always guarantee seamless transitions. This new tweak means content updates to Playlists are even smoother on screen.
  • Also, we improved our caching policy for our Web Players. In case of devices with limited storage (like Smart TVs), our new smart management will do its best to keep the playback running based on the available device storage.
  • We also tweaked the Instagram Widget, so you can display posts based on date and can see the most recent posts first.
  • Those of you who display Walls.io social media walls will be happy to know that you can also display private walls!
  • Finally, we added tons of new templates. So check them out and get creative!

Bugs fixed

  • In some specific web pages, when the Player had the ‘Retain session data’ option enabled and the whole Player also rebooted, it sometimes displayed an error message that said Restore Web Page. It’s fixed now!
  • Also, the Calendar Events Feed Widget didn’t display some future recurring events. That works fine too now.
  • In addition, the ‘Reset password’ form didn’t accept emails with a plus (+) sign. However, we fixed it and it accepts them now!
