Displagent is not a web application that you have to run from a browser. Rather, it's a desktop application, enhanced for an unattended, kiosk experience.
Unlike the rest of the Power BI ecosystem, Displagent is not Windows-only. Instead, Displagent is cross-platform, so feel free to run it on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Since Displagent is cross-platform and is meant to be a kiosk-like app, it pairs perfectly with a Raspberry Pi. Get a reliable, powerful kiosk setup for the fractional cost of a Raspberry Pi device.
Power BI Premium Not Required
Unlike many other digital signage solutions, Displagent does not require Power BI Premium or even Premium Per User. If you have Power BI Pro, that's all you need - no need to drastically increase your budget.
Displagent now offers two forms of Microsoft Integrations, the Standard (default) Integration and Advanced Integration. You are free to choose which you like, and the Standard Integration is dead simple to setup and easy to use.
Local Encrypted Credentials
Because Displagent is a desktop app, it will store and encrypt your sensitive Azure credentials locally. No need to store your credentials in some other company's database, they stay on your machine in your control.
Multifactor Authentication Compatible
Does your company have a strict, no-exceptions multifactor authentication (MFA) requirement? Displagent's Standard Microsoft Integration is MFA-compatible, so your IT department should be pleased!
No Login Timeouts
With Displagent's meticulously-crafted Advanced Microsoft Integration, you will never experience a login timeout or annoying popup box. Your Microsoft authentication is self-sustaining, uninterrupted, and reliable.
You won't find this in any other digital signage app: hand-craft slideshows piece by piece from your Power BI reports. Select one Power BI Report and order each Report Page/Tab for a tailored slideshow experience.
Report Bookmarks Supported
Do you use advanced sets of Report Bookmarks in your Power BI Reports? So do I, so Report Slideshows support both Report Pages/Tabs and Report Bookmarks.
Most solutions force you to use one duration interval for all slides. In Displagent, you can assign a custom duration for each individual slide in your Report Slideshow, just like Powerpoint.
Assign a recurring refresh interval (in seconds) to your Report Slideshow. Displagent can provide a refresh up to every 15 seconds and supports Import Mode, Direct Query, Live Connection, and Automatic Page Refresh.
Easy Slide Reordering
Want to reorder a slideshow's contents? No problem, just click and drag each slideshow item up or down on a table to easily reorder your slideshow.
Do you pin visuals from your Power BI Reports to Power BI Dashboards? No problem, you can also create Dashboard Slideshows. Arguably even easier to create than Report Slideshows!
Displagent's most-requested feature: combine multiple Report Slideshows and Dashboard Slideshows together. This allows you to display content from multiple Power BI reports, dashboards, and workspaces in one place.
Want Displagent to autolaunch on machine startup? What about after a reboot or power loss? No problem, activate Autolaunch inside of Displagent and have the application autostart a slideshow type and slideshow of your choosing.
Don't want to deal with app updates? Me neither, so Displagent ships with an automatic updates toggle for your convenience. It will periodically check for updates, and if it finds any, it will shutdown, install, and relaunch all on its own! Perfect with the Autolaunch feature.
I run Displagent as a solo, bootstrapped software founder, so if you have any issues, feature requests, or anything else, you get to interact directly with the founder - me!
