Some very exciting new features come out this week! They include:

  • Bulk editing of graphics. Many customers commented that it was inconvenient to go into each graphic individually to schedule or make them priority, so we've added the functionality to edit many graphics at once. Simply click the checkbox in the upper left corner of each graphic to select it, then click Edit in the upper right to begin editing all selected graphics. 
    See the relevant support article for more info.
  • Multiple scheduling blocks. Up till now, graphics could only be scheduled for one chunk of time. Now, you can add multiple time blocks - for example, 12pm-2pm, and 6pm-8pm.
  • Recurring graphics. Do you wish a certain graphic would show on your screen more often, but still want to play the others sometimes too? Use this feature to repeat a graphic in between every other graphic, every 5 graphics, etc.
  • Mini monitoring page. We're really excited about this one - this is a very basic version of our larger Monitoring system, available to Network level customers. Click the Monitoring button on your home page to see whether your screens are on or offline.
    See the relevant support article for more info.
