I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Ability to update or remove the "Join HootBoard" scroll bar on Digital Signage

    There is currently a ticker at the bottom of digital signage which I'd like to remove or update. Its mostly the admins posting so don't want others to post.

      There are a few different idle states that occur when the touch kiosk is not in use. Allow the user to select which state they want it in and highlight which particular posts are used in that state.

      • add a news and weather ticker function.

        In addition to custom tickers, having built in ticker functionality to display news and weather would be very useful.

          • Allow admins to toggle captions for Video Hoots.

            Currently on Digital Signage, the captions for video hoots are not shown, let the admins decide by means of a toggle on the video hoot, whether to show captions or not.

                      • retain volume settings on reboot

                        the Air seems to revert to full volume quite often, which I would assume is happening upon reboot. Would love to be able to set the volume once at the Debian level and never have to worry about it again.

                                    • Calendar preset for archiving all Hoot posts.

                                      Create a calendar setting under Manage Boards to preset all hoot posts' durations. The display period for all hoots could be set for weeks or months from the date of posting. After this time, hoots would be automatically archived unless Admin removes time settings for individual hoots.

                                      • custom collection start screen

                                        Several users complain that the default board is too overwhelming. This could be easily solved if we could assign a particular collection as a default home screen. Added bonus if we can create hoots that link to other collections (which I suppose we could do now in browser version, but not mobile). Conversely, give users the option of a "start here" portal that only shows the various collections as posts. So instead of going from ALL POSTS-> sorted collections, they can start small (with just collections) and go bigger.

                                          Enable color code selection for background of Hoots instead of the pre-set colors. Or at a minimum add an actual rich black option!
