Display a dashboard on a public monitor

edited March 2023 in Scheduled Reports

In our headquarters building... we have a few large monitors around the building that display various things (videos, some reporting/performance numbers, etc.).

 

We are exploring the idea of displaying a domo dashboard on one of these monitors.  We setup a "report screen" user in domo... and logged in and opened up the dashboard fullscreen on the monitor, and it looks great.

 

However, the forced log off is our issue now.  I don't want to have to remote connect to the computer that controls the monitor multiple times a day to log back in to domo and launch the dashboard.

 

- Does anyone have any experience with anything like this... maybe turning off the "forced log off"

- Or does anyone else use a different method to "permanently" display a domo dashboard page like what I've described.  I thought about maybe trying it with domo embed from internal website... but I have a feeling the forced log off would still be an issue.

 

Has anybody done anything like this?

 

thanks,
Jeff H.

    Not sure about the 'forced logoff' issue, but they have an apple TV app for just this scenario if you can't get it worked out on a browser.

    Hope that helps.

    Hmmm... that is interesting.  But I imagine that the meat of the app is just handling the display to the monitor... which we can already do with just a browser... but if a user has to be logged into domo, I assume we would run into the same "forced log-off" situation with the apple app.

     

    We want the dashboard/page to be open around the clock... without having to continually log in.

     

    Basically we want the same functionality as the publication slideshow... which will show a constant feed of cards without having to be "logged in" to domo... but we want to display an entire page... not rotate through cards.

    @Jeffsnake If you don't mind me asking, what is the reason for wanting an entire dashboard instead of rotating cards? Have you tried embedding the cards in a website and just displaying that website?

    @Ashleigh  -  We want to display static multiple cards on a single large screen.  Using Embed is our next thing to try... but we haven't purchased it yet, and I was trying to make it work without it for now.  Everything works great, except for the fact that it auto logs off overnight so I have to manually log it back in every day.

     

    I think we are going to end up having to go the embed route and just create a web page.
