How To Manage Multiple Dashboard Screens From One Machine

Intelligent multiscreen dashboard software

Hero curtain

It started with one dashboard screen, then two... now you want to display 12 screens rotating through 35 dashboards.

Now it's getting tricky.

Forget about manually managing this your self, let Vue Pilot it do it for you. Vue Pilot supports multiscreen configuration so you can connect as many screens as you wish to the one machine and remotely manage them all from the comfort of your desk.

Here's an example

James has 4 wall mounted TV screens.
  • On screen one, he wants to cycle through 3 sales dashboards at an interval of 30 seconds each.
  • On screen two, he wants 5 IT Operations dashboards cycling at a minute each
  • On screen three, two finance reports at 20 seconds each
  • On screen four, a rotation with all the latest industry news at different intervals
This machine is automatically patched every wednesday and these rotations need to restart after reboot.

Sound like you? We know it all to well.. The good news is, Vue Pilot has a solution for you that will only take you a few minutes to provide a solution for the above example

Step 1 - Install and activate Vue Pilot

If you havn't already, install and activate Vue Pilot on your machine. You can follow the steps found at: How To Remotely Manage Office Dashboard Screens to help get you started

Step 2 - Setup Your Display Configuration

Open up either the Vue Pilot dashboard display management panel or the display management panel directly on the Vue Pilot software on your dashboard machine.

We can manage the connected displays from either. You should see screen icons representing your connected displays.
Select a rotation for each display from the drop down menus.

You can provide a description for the display if this helps you remember which one is which. Click "SAVE DISPLAY CONFIG" when done, this will save the changes to the database and push out the updated config to your connected machine.

Step 3 - Start, Stop, Pause and Hijack

Show content on any screen immediately with hijack

So now we're connected and ready to go. We can of course always control the dashboard rotation from the software running on the machine, but what can we do remotely?

Start the rotation on the machine by simply clicking the start button.
Want to pause the rotation so you can discuss a particular dashboard with your team? Simply click pause, resume the rotation cycle again by clicking start.

How about displaying some content that isn’t part of any rotation? Maybe a news article or a stock chart that you want to highlight to your team?

Take over a screen using the “Hijack” functionality, simply enter the URL you wish display and click hijack. This will display this URL in full screen over the top of your normal rotation to bring immediate attention to this content.
