The Monitoring app is only available in the Pro subscription.

The Monitoring app lets you play multiple Playr channels in a grid within one page. This allows you to monitor the content that is currently being played in one or more channels at a glance.


This app is also convenient in certain video wall setups. Say you have one computer and 4 screens next to each other. You have one super wide browser window stretched across all screens. Now create a channel with a single page with just one Monitoring app across the full width, which shows 4 channels in a row. That is the channel that you set to play in the super wide browser window. The channels within the Monitoring app can now be designed for regular (individual) screens.

Channels played within a monitoring app do not count towards the allowed number of screens in your subscription. Only the main channel that plays the page with the monitoring app is counted.


You can configure the app using the following properties:

Property Explanation
Number of columns Set the number of columns to spread the channels across. If you add more channels, they will wrap around onto a new row.
Channels to monitor Add/remove channels of dashboards you have access to.
Show names Show the channel names at the bottom of every channel.

And finally there are a number of generic app properties that you can configure that you'll find on many other elements as well.
