Secure Grafana Widget

Your sensitive business data must stay under lock and key. But what happens when it has to take center stage on signage screens so your teams can strategize? Our new widget puts safety first so that you can display Grafana Cloud graphs privately and securely. Specifically, you access your Grafana account by signing in from inside our platform – that way your charts don’t have to become public. Also, you set how often it refreshes, so your screens display up-to-date analytics. So go ahead and put your heads together!

Release Notes

New features

Just create your menu on their service and then paste the link in our widget to get mouthwatering menu templates on screen in seconds. Also, if you sign up to DSMenu through our affiliate link, you get 20% off – no commission for us!

Improvements

  • Your input is invaluable to us! So we created a brand new ‘Request a new widget’ form in the Portal’s Widget section, so you can tell us what you need to make your signage screens thrive.
  • Our Birthday Widget now accommodates different date formats to make it easy for you to use your existing files. Just select the date format you want in the ‘Birthday CSV File’ field so it matches the format in your files!
  • We also removed the Layers icon in our Google Traffic Widget for unimpeded views of traffic chaos.
  • Also, now when an end user creates a Web Player, a notification appears in the screenshot area reminding people to download the extension. You need it to support the full suite of Yodeck’s features.

Bugs fixed

  • When someone tried to validate their account in order to verify their email with our platform, the verification mail never got sent. It now wings its way to you pronto!
  • Some custom roles displayed incomplete descriptions of each role, so we got that fixed in a jiffy!
  • We also fixed an issue with media mass uploading. When a workspace admin was administrator in only one workspace, they couldn’t upload more than one media at a time (we’re still scratching our heads about that one!). However, now they can mass upload media to their heart’s content.
  • In addition, users couldn’t delete media tags as the delete button wasn’t responding (let’s just say it was on hiatus for a while). Go ahead and hit that delete button now – it’s awaiting your orders!
