What's New

May 2023

Discover the latest updates to myViewBoard Manager, Whiteboard and myviewboard.com in May 2023!

Summer's upon us, and the myViewBoard team is here to bring you another monthly update! Read on to learn the latest features and changes to Manager, Whiteboard, myviewboard.com, and more.

Manager broadcast updates and more

This month, we primarily have Manager Advanced updates to share. Namely, we're happy to provide Advanced users with more broadcasting options!

First up, for web page broadcasting, you will now see the option to automatically refresh the web page during a broadcast. Some web pages may update content while the page is open, so we're providing this option to ensure your broadcast continues to present the latest information to your intended viewers.

Find this option when preparing a broadcast after selecting the web page option. When enabling this feature, set a time interval after which the web page will automatically refresh. The web page will continue to refresh at this time interval so long as the broadcast continues.

User has input a web page URL and set the refresh interval to ON with the minute selection menu open.

Next, we've added three new broadcast layouts! We're happy to offer even more broadcasting options to suit your campus communication needs.

Finally, here are some quick Manager updates:

  • Reports > export (Advanced users): View more device usage information in the exported XLSX file.
    • New fields: serial number, firmware version, operating system, notes, group name, date of enrollment, Manager version, and Wi-Fi SSID.
  • New language support (all Manager users): Catalan is now supported in the console! Hola!

Whiteboard enhancements

Let's get into the latest feature improvements for the different Whiteboard versions!
