Geckoboard is a very useful tool to present business data, KPIs, and graphs. To help you make use of Geckoboard within your organisation, Signagelive has created this simple to use app.

Adding the Geckoboard App to your network

First, you will need to locate the Geckoboard App within the Marketplace and add it to your network.

If you’re unsure where to find the Marketplace, or how you can add the content within to your network, please see this guide.

How to Set Up the Geckoboard App

You can configure the Geckoboard App within your library, or you can drag it into a Playlist. From there you can double click on the App to open its properties.

The first box you can see is the ‘Content to Embed’ section. You can follow the steps below to populate this box.

  1. Enter your Login details

  2. Navigate to the dashboard you want to share

  3. Select Share

  4. Once you have the Share Link, you can copy this URL, and Paste it into the Content to Embed section.

That’s it! You can save your Playlist to update, and go to the Publish section to make it live across your screens.

Top Tip

If the data does not appear to be up-to-date on the widget, then you need to navigate to ‘Dashboard Settings’ within Geckoboard. Underneath ‘Refresh Remote Dashboards’, and press ‘Refresh’. This will cause the content to sync and be up to date.

Please Note

This app will scale to the full size of the zone it is published to.
