Flyerboard

If your organization installs a Flyerboard, it will pull and display data from various tools and web applications including the News System, YSM Calendar, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc. However, the settings for the touchscreen itself are managed in Tridion using a Flyerboard schema component.

Please see the table below for an explanation of each field in the Flyerboard schema and how each setting affects the touchscreen display.
