How to set up a slideshow
Similar to a PowerPoint presentation, slideshows allow users to display their own selection of dashboards or other views in sequence. This may be useful in a presentation, but can also allow you to rotate through multiple dashboards for monitoring purposes on a flat panel in a corporate hallway, in an operation center, in a kiosk, etc.
2. Create a new slideshow
To create a slideshow, go to the main menu, click New, and then click Slideshow.
3. Add views to the slideshow
In the slideshow editor, click Add Item.
Select a dashboard or other view to be added to the slideshow.
Add the remaining views to the slideshow. Each view is also referred to as a slide.
You can reorder the slides by dragging them, or remove a slide by clicking the (x) icon, similar to how items on the home screen can be customized.
You can click Modify Slides in the toolbar to exit the editing mode. This is a toggle button, and you can click it again to go back to edit the slides.
When editing a slideshow, click Configure in the toolbar to set various slideshow options such as:
- Name of the slideshow
- Duration for each slide in seconds
- Slide Reload Interval in seconds, if you want each slide to also reload itself at some interval before moving to the next
- Repeat — loops through the slides continuously
5. Preview and play the slideshow
When editing, click Preview from the toolbar to play the slideshow.
A panel appears automatically by default when moving the mouse toward the bottom of the screen, containing convenient options for pausing or playing the slideshow, and previous/next buttons.
To access additional options, including for returning to the slideshow editor, right-click (or long-tap) the slideshow to access its context menu:
