Reading the Dashboard
The dashboard section is the default screen shown once logged in. It displays a list of all channels, playlists and media content actively being displayed on any device in the network.
You can jump immediately to any channel, playlist or media item by clicking on it.
To set all screens on the network back to their default channels, select the blue 'Sync Now' button. A warning message will appear asking for confirmation. On confirmation, all screens will be synchronised to show the default channel specified for each screen - see Screen Information for setting the default channel.
To set screens on the network to their emergency channel, select the red 'Sync' button. A menu will display with options to sync all screens or choose a specific channel.
After selecting an option, a warning message will appear asking for confirmation. On confirmation, the selected screen(s) will be synchronised to their specified emergency channel - see Screen Information for setting the emergency channel.
In the top navigation on the right side, within the group of buttons click the first one to view a dropdown with all pending updates to screens on your network.
Applying any updates to a screen will have it display in the list - such as changing screen settings, or configuring any media item, playlist or channel assigned to a screen.
Updates in progress are displayed with a loading icon. Click the name of a screen to be taken to its settings. Upon completion of the update, the screen will be removed from the list.
The pending updates button is not displayed if there are no updates or if they have all been completed.
If an update has failed - likely due to being offline or losing network connection - it will be displayed with an error icon. For help with offline screens and update errors, please contact Eyemagnet Support.
In the top navigation on the right side, within the group of buttons click the second one to view a dropdown with all recent activity on your network.
This menu shows all of the following, sorted in order of time:
- User logging in
- Creation or deletion of a media item, playlist or channel
- Modification of a media item, playlist, channel or screen
Click on an event to be taken to the relevant section (e.g. selecting a modified playlist will present the settings for that playlist).
In the top navigation on the right side, within the group of buttons click the third one to view a dropdown with language select options.
The selected language will be reflected in titles, buttons, labels, etc. across the interface.
