Weather Configuration
« on: June 27, 2016, 12:07:32 PM »
I would like to suggest that DigitalSignage.com improve their weather component.  The current basic and world weather data only updates once every 4 hours.  Depending on where you are located, this might not be a big deal if the temperature does not fluctuate that much during the day.  However if you are located in a city where there is a 30 degree or larger variance (it can be 64 degrees at 7am and then over 90 degrees by noon) or where rain showers come in short bursts, it can be a huge problem.  The majority of people viewing digital signage expect to see accurate weather within a reasonable time-frame of the current time.  Weather data that is up to 4 hours old is not useful information and can cause unwanted attention and problems for digital signage managers or operators. The weather data should be at a minimum refreshed every hour for the enterprise users.

Thanks!
