Abstract

Dashboards for Wallboards: Cycler

Body

The Dashboard Application Services Hub component of JazzSM is quite good at creating dashboards suitable for use on large shared displays such as wallboards in critical operations centers or even informational displays in building lobbies.  But did you know that these displays can be configured to cycle through multiple dashboards on a timer?

This is a frequently requested feature, but is not actually delivered as a feature of DASH.  It can be achieved with capabilities already supplied with DASH however: the ability to host custom HTML, the ability to integrate with eventing (widget communication), and the ability to create custom widgets.
