One of the most requested new features, Hurrah! now features Contests! Motivating your team with friendly competition just got easier and more exciting. Run contests on Bar Graph Leaderboards slides in Hurrah!
Specify the KPI you want to measure and an end time for the contest. The Contest slide will automatically isolate and display the KPI for each participant within the period that the contest is set to run. Let everyone know when the contest ends by selecting a video to go off. Set the Contest Results slide to show up to three winners and choose how long to display the winners in your slideshow.
Aggregate Metrics for Big Events
Big Events are designed to celebrate important achievements and milestones with animated slides and audio. Now what customers have deemed Hurrah!’s #1 feature has expanded capability! Big Events can be triggered when something singular happens as before, but new improvements also make it simple to set Big Events slides to go off when a specified metric overpasses a certain threshold. Now it is even easier to celebrate your team’s progress! Just choose the metric you want to track in the Big Events slide and set a threshold amount to trigger.
Improved Countdown Template
Hurrah! has a new and improved Countdown slide template! A dynamic countdown clock now adjusts its display according to the amount of time remaining. The clock moves to display days, hours, minutes, and then seconds as time gets closer to the end. Plus, we’ve improved the user interface, making setting countdown slides easier than ever.
Audio Enabled for Announcements.
Now video with audio can be added to Announcement slides! Make your announcements stand out with sound and video so the whole office notices!
Centralized TV Management System
Hurrah! now lets you register your devices and manage slideshows on different screens all from one centralized location. This is great for offices with multiple display consoles or a decentralized layout.
Quickly and easily register your display devices from your admin console with a 4-digit verification code. This major upgrade means that after initial registration, your display devices can all be managed from your registered admin device, and you will not have to sign in to each display console again.
Streamlined User Registration
Now new users can register on their devices right in the Hurrah! platform, instead of using a third party server. Administrators can then assign them proper roles and grant them permission to access to the admin site.
Note: upgrading to the new platform will require all previous users to re-register on their devices once the primary admin account has been set up.
Fixes and Refactorings
We are always working to improve our product, even in little ways. Slideshows now take up less memory on your devices and run more smoothly overall. Plus we’ve added some other enhancements to promote overall performance!
