Awesome New Digital Signage Dashboard Coming May 18

May 13, 2021

We’re excited to announce some major updates to your Markey Digital Signage dashboard arriving next week! This update is part of our intentional efforts to elevate Markey for your team, making it as easy as possible to update your signage from anywhere.

As part of this change, we’re excited to deliver greater stability overall across both Free and Pro accounts, and more specifically:

Let’s explore each of those areas more in-depth. Don’t have an account to try it out for yourself? Well it’s free, so what are you waiting for? Sign up, today!

More modern look and feel

There’s a fresh coat of paint on your dashboard for the first time in almost two years! We’re excited to have a whole new look that puts buttons and tools at your fingertips in a more refined way. We’ve made buttons and actions way more evident. There’s a lot more than we can cover here, but you’ll see a much clearer indication of what Region you’re editing on your digital signage, more visible action to the Region Settings, better color pickers, more promanent Preview and Publish buttons, and much more.

Add your own Team Members

Now you can add all of your Team Members who need to access Markey Digital Signage and add content to your channels! Simply direct over to the “Team” option from your Account menu and then add a new team member. They’ll get an email to accept the invitation and create their password. Then you’re all set to go!

Easier interactions and tools

It’s easier than ever before to create and edit Playlists (Pro feature) with larger buttons, easier to interact with slides and order, and text previews to know what’s inside each widget. Tools are much snappier than they used to be and we have more stable uses of the Media picker when adding an Image widget, as well as more dependable date pickers when you’re scheduling a slide to appear during a specific time frame. Overall, editing your digital signage in Markey is faster and easier than ever before.

Refreshed Media Library that loads faster

You’ve got a lot of images. And you should! But that took a bit of time to load up when we were trying to get you to your Media in the Library or when you were selecting an image for your Channel. So now we’ve implemented some better loading techniques to help those pages load much faster than they used to, making it less cumbersome to update your digital signage channels.

Plus, you can now select and delete multiple images all at once! Simply click on the images you want to remove and then click the “Delete Selected Images” and you’re good to go! Clearing out the ones you don’t need any longer helps you and your Team make sure you’re just loading up the images that are relevant.

Change the Device Code for an existing Device

We’ve all been there, right? Something got stuck in the cache on our FireStick so we head into the settings and clear out the data on our FireStick and now we’ve got to re-add the Device in our Markey dashboard. Well now, that process is a couple steps shorter! After getting a new Device Code for a Device, you can click the pencil icon next to the Device in question and just type in the new six digit code. Voila! Your digital signage is back up and running!

And more!

That’s just the tip of the ice burg. This latest update allows our team at Markey to be more nimble and iterative with updates moving forward. We’re focused on delivering the best, easiest to update, and most affordable digital signage solution for you and your Team and we feel this sets the stage for us to pursue that even stronger moving forward. Of course, we want your feedback! Let us know how Markey is working for you and what we could do to make it even better.
