Manager quick updates

We've been working hard on refining the overall myViewBoard Manager experience since we've brought you larger updates early this year. Here are a couple of updates we're bringing to you this month.

First, for all Manager users, take note of the following CAP (Common Alerting Protocol) messaging updates:

  • Alertus integration support has been added! For organizations using Alertus for emergency broadcasting, we've got you covered.
  • CrisisGo update:
    • The “Mute Release” parameter configuration is now supported.
    • When this parameter is configured, Manager will make sure to end your broadcast at the intended time.

Next, we've implemented a quality-of-life update for playlists. Previously, you could only edit the duration a slide displays one slide at a time. Now, you can edit the duration of all slides through a single edit!

The option is available when editing a desired playlist:

User has opened the Time Per Slide edit prompt within an example playlist.

By the way, you can still edit individual slides by pressing .

Whiteboard updates

We have several updates to the different versions of myViewBoard Whiteboard to announce, but first, learn about a substantial update to ViewSonic Originals within Whiteboard!

ViewSonic Originals content tiers, accessible from within Whiteboard

Starting this month, Originals content is now being divided into tiers. If you visit https://myviewboard.com/originals/, you'll notice some of the content now display icons on the home page.

Content such as Shape Finches and Animals (Vertebrates) display Pro (bronze) and Entity (gold) tiered content.

Within Whiteboard, you will still be able to access content, but now, content is selection is done entirely through the Embedded Browser. Learn more about the available options for opening content through the Embedded Browser.

User accesses Originals lessons through the Embedded Browser. When on the Originals website, the user filters content available to Pro and Standard tiers.

User accesses Originals backgrounds through the Backgrounds Management menu. When on the Originals backgrounds page, the user filters backgrounds available to users before sign-in (Free).

Of note, Originals content is accessible based on a user's myViewBoard subscription tier. The breakdown is as follows:

  • Red crown icon: Free content (no sign-in required)
  • No icon: Standard account sign-in required
  • Bronze crown: Pro subscription required
  • Silver crown: Premium subscription required
  • Gold crown: Entity subscription required

Make sure to review Originals content you have used in the past to make sure you are subscribed to the appropriate tier for your!
