Idea - Auto cycle through dashboard sub tabs

Nigel Smith shared this idea 2 years ago
Not Planned

It would be a useful feature if a master dashboard tab could be set to cycle through the defined sub tabs at predetermined timings. This would be useful to allow stats to be displayed in a prominent position within an office location on a Plasma screen. Instead of the screen being static in terms of what is displayed, the screen could cycle through & automatically display the next sub tab after say 120 seconds (definable).

Hello Nigel,

Thanks for the Idea! Unfortunately, I think that this is something that presently falls beyond the scope of the Yellowfin product. On a positive note though, there are a number of solutions that allow one to write a script to browse web pages, which may work for your needs Essentially, Yellowfin is a webpage, so a script could be written in order to automate 'clicking' on each sub-tab link at rotating 120 second intervals. Searching the web for "writing a script to browse a webpage" did net some results in accomplishing that task. This may be something to look into, however it would require a little coding knowledge.

I understand this may not be the news you were hoping for and am sorry for any inconvenience this may be causing. Does this reply help answer your inquiries?
