HOW TO

How to loop together Databoards

Using the Looped Databoards functionality, you can loop multiple Databoards together to create one centralized Shareable Link to host your full report. This Shareable Link will display the Databoard(s) with the same Date Range options, visualizations, and data sync frequency of the Databox Account. 

1
 Navigate to the Databoards page   
2
 Hover over the Databoard you want to set as the first Databoard in the loop and click the Share Databoard icon. This first Databoard will host the Shareable Link for all looped Databoards     
3
  Share Databoard window opens on the  Shareable Link tab
4

 Click + Add Databoard to select the Databoards to loop together. Once you have selected the appropriate Databoards from the Account, click the green Add button 

5
 Change the order of the Databoards by clicking on the icon to the left of the Databoard title and dragging it to the appropriate position. The first Databoard cannot be changed
6
 To auto-loop through the Databoards, select the Autoloop checkbox. Enter the number of seconds you would like each Databoard displayed before automatically switching to the next Databoard
7
 Copy and paste the Shareable Link to your browser. At the bottom of the screen, you'll see options to play, pause, or manually switch between Databoards
Pro Tip: Sharing a Shareable Link does not give the recipient access to the Databox Account. To give direct access to the Databox Account, you will need to add them as a user by following these steps

Loop together Databoards from multiple Client Accounts

Using Looped Databoards, you can loop together Databoards from the same Databox Account. Now we'll walk through a way to loop together Databoards from different Databox Accounts. 

Agencies often use this strategy to create Databoard loops for different members of their team. For example, if Jim works with 6 Clients and focuses on SEO, he can loop together SEO Databoards from all 6 Client Accounts to produce a valuable view across Clients. 

This Chrome Plugin will load all added pages in the specified order and refresh the page after a set amount of time passes. No Data or Databoards are transfered across the Accounts.

1
 Install the Chrome Plugin URL Slideshow
2
 Open all of the Shareable Links you want to loop together in your browser
3
 Start with the first Databoard you want to add to the loop. Right click the URL Slideshow icon and click Add this page 
4
 Repeat step #3 for all Shareable Links you want to add to the loop
5
 Right click the  URL Slideshow icon and click Options 
6
 Here, you can set the Default URL Showing Time, select Start on browser start and/ or  Fullscreen viewing options, and update any URLs in the loop
7
