The general message displayed on InfoBoards is set from their assigned InfoBoard Group. You can change the message displayed and set the message to be displayed or not to be displayed. When changing an InfoBoard Group setting, all InfoBoards assigned to the group are updated.
Go to Devices > InfoBoards > from the bottom menu, select InfoBoard Groups.
Select the Name link of the group to update. Its profile is displayed.
From the General Features section, update the following settings.
Message: sets the message displayed on the InfoBoards. Allows up to a maximum of 64 characters.
For message displayed on MiniBoard only: due to its smaller display width, an _ (underscore) character is required between every 10 characters, which creates a line break for proper scrolling. For example, to display "Early Release Today at 1:00 PM". Set to: Early_Release Today_at 1:00 PM.
Message Color: sets the color of the message. Options include White, Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Yellow, and Magenta.
Scroll Speed: sets the scroll speed of the message, the higher the number the faster the scroll. 3 or 4 are recommended. When set to 0 (zero) the message does not scroll, which should be used when there are less than 10 characters.
Set the message to be displayed or not displayed. From the Display Interval section, update the below setting.
Display Message for: sets if the message is displayed or not displayed. The number represents how many seconds the message is displayed as the InfoBoard rotates displaying its time, date, and message.
When set to 0 (zero), the message is not displayed and only time and date are displayed.
When greater than 0 (zero), the message is displayed for selected the number of seconds.
For example, Display Message for is set to 30 seconds, and the Display Time and Display Date are set to 60 seconds. The InfoBoards display their time and date for 60 consecutive seconds and then rotate to display the message for 30 consecutive seconds. This rotation continues until the message is set to 0 (zero).
The setting update is downloaded to all assigned InfoBoards during their next connection to OneVue.
By default, InfoBoards connect to OneVue every 5 minutes (Config Change Interval setting) to download setting updates. When set to every 5 minutes, it can take up to 5 minutes for a message or setting update to be displayed on an InfoBoard.
