Dashboard TV Loops are a great way to show a number of dashboards one after another on the same screen. A TV Loop looks very similar to slideshow. You can group dashboards and set delays in seconds for “the slideshow” screen change. TV Loops are designed for office TV screen displays and are used to show several relevant dashboards to internal teams of an organization. For example, a group of “Sales Dashboards” created using QuickBooks data can be grouped into a TV Loop for a TV display hanging on the Sales Department’s office wall.
Go to TOP RIGHT menu > MANAGE TV LOOPS...
TV Management panel will be displayed. These are the main configuration options:
Loop name - new loop name
Loop URL link - public TV Loop URL link that you can copy to clipboard and share with clients
Dashboards - list of dashboards that make up TV Loop. Add dashboards and define display sequence.
Seconds per dashboards - set delay in seconds for each dashboard display
Once you have defined a TV Loop, you can send it to external device (TV). Dashboards will keep updating and rotating using delay that you set in seconds.
Please note that the feature will not work well on older TVs that have Horizontal resolution of less than 900 pixels (X-axis). To check your TV browser resolution, please visit this link: http://viewportsizes.com/mine/
