Rotating through dashboard tabs on your TV


You can set a television to rotate through your different queries on a dashboard. This is referred to as a rotating TV display . Similarly to flipping from channel to channel automatically, you can flip from tab to tab on one of your dashboards. You can pack each tab with visuals or add one query per tab for a large view of your reports. Rotating TV displays are a unique way of keeping everyone in your contact center or sales floor up-to-date.

Note: To create a rotating TV display, you must have access to at least one TV and a Chromecast device, Apple TV with Airplay, or any other method for sending a screen from a computer to a TV.

Before you can set up a rotating TV display, you will need to have already connected to data sources, built queries, and created a dashboard. If you have not completed these tasks beforehand, see Getting started .
