Repeat Signage Manager - BETA version May 2016 - Repeat Signage V4.0.25 and above


This is a new feature of Repeat Signage V4.  If you have connected Repeat Signage to a free RepeatServer.com account, then the Repeat Signage Manager will automatically launch and will be displayed in the Windows Tray Area, which is normally in the bottom right corner of your Windows screen:



This will communicate automatically with RepeatServer.com and send information about your player.   This information includes:

- Usage information - When ever you play a presentation or play list, Repeat Signage logs this, along with the finish time when it occurs. 

Note - Usage information can be seen directly on the Repeat Signage player computer, without a RepeatServer.com account being links.  On the player computer open Repeat Signage and go to the main screen and click on 'Utilities' then 'Presentation and play list playing log'. 

- Computer information - This includes details of the Window's version, Repeat Signage version, machine name, etc.   This does not include any personal information. 

- Error information - Information on any errors that may have occured.  This will include details on missing files needed by presentations and any other areas.

- Screen shot - A picture of the playing presentation.  This will be updated periodically.

Obviously this will only work if the player computer has an active Internet connection.

You will then be able to log onto your RepeatServer.com account and use the 'Repeat Signage V4 player computers' list to view this information.   You will be able to see whether a player is online or offline, a screen shot of the playing presentation, etc.  If you are having problems with a player, you can also then request that our support department review this information which will also help in diagnosing the problem.

When you log onto your free RepeatServer.com account then click on the 'RS V4 players' icon to take you to the Repeat Signage V4 players list:

Repeat Signage Messaging System (BETA)

With Repeat Signage V4.0.30 onwards,  you can use RepeatServer.com to send messages to screens that are displayed for a set number of seconds.  These message boxes appear over the top of playing presentations, either part or full screen.  This system will include picture messages and voice messaging when completed.  So you could send a temporary message, for whatever purchase to one or more screens at the same time. 

Use the 'Player messages' section below the computer list to do this:
