Creating an appointment Board
« on: September 16, 2014, 07:42:57 AM »
Im trying to see if this may have been already done or if there is an easy way to create an assignment board. I have 7 recording booths here at our reading for the blind facility. Id like to have a monitor setup with the readers seeing their assigned booth that they can look at when they arrive to read. Essentially 7 booths across the top, and say from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM down the left side
with blocks with their name in the box sort of like an Excel Spreadsheet look. Has anyone done anything like this?
Thanks for any and all help

there are many ways to do this, one way is to use the Enterprise XML component, create a free Apache local web server that serves the XML, and all screens update from that XML source, see here: http://www.digitalsignage.com/_html/signage_video.html?videoNumber=XML%20component

Do you input the data once a day in the morning or does it keep changing. If its once a morning then you can create a scene in the studio and change the data every day. Another way is to use a google spread sheet and use the same html link. If the data keeps changing the whole day then XML will be the best way

Ideally I would like to make one for each day and have it switch in the morning. Usually the schedule is somewhat static unless we have someone call in sick, then it is necessary to make a change.I dunno about that Apache stuff sounds pretty complex.

I think the standard functions in the studio will be fine then. You can choose to make a scene like anoop says. Use the scheduling functions in the studio to plan each schedule per day.

I'd be interested in learning how you accomplish this. I've used the XML player so I'd be curious how you're outputting the calendar data.

I've emailed you ANOOP but haven't gotten a response. Perhaps I sent it to the wrong address?? I'm really needing help at this point. Thanks Frank
