Weather Map Widget
Don’t get caught out in the rain
The Weather Map lets you display a map on your Channels that includes weather radar, traffic status, and more. Get all that you need to start or end your day, or schedule that team lunch on the patio at a glance!
Weather Map Settings
Enter the full address you’d like to be cenetered on the map when it displays within its selected region.
Enter your own API key if you’d like to leverage your own Google Maps account apart from Markey’s.
Select from one of four styles: Roadmap, Satellite, Hybrid, and Terrain.
Select from one of five different themes that all have different color combinations and line styles: Default, Blue Water, Shades of Gray, Ultra Light w/ Labels, and wy.
Select whether or not you’d like bicycle paths to display on your map.
Select whether you’d like to display current traffic conditions.
Select whether you’d like the weather radar overlay to display on your map.
Show Last Update?
Determine whether you’d like to display the time and date stamp of when the map was last updated.
Determine whether you want to display a pin at the Address you have entered as the center of your map.
Select how zoomed in or out the map should be on your Address center point. The higher the value, the more zoomed in it will be.
For example, 15 would zoom in to show the address and some streets around the address. A value of 6 will give you a view that encapsulates a wide area of your state/country.
All slides of all widgets have these same display settings.
Check the box for this slide to be published on your actual device(s). Uncheck the box to hide the slide from your device(s) but still keep it in the Region timeline.
Have a line of text show up at the bottom of the selected Slide. You can also select the Background Color and Text Color of the caption.
Pro Tip: This can be helpful in a pinch if you're looking to put a little text over an image without having to use image editing software. Especially handy when uploading headshots of employees and you want to have their name at the bottom of the image as well.
Select the color to display behind the widget using HTML hex codes (for example, white is #ffffff and black is #000000) or using the on-screen color-picker.
Pro Tip: This is especially helpful when using PNG image files with a transparent background and is a great way to add a little extra personality behind your images, text, clocks, and more!
Set a specific start and end date and time for the specific slide, as well as which days of the week it should display. After opening the date picker, click on the date you'd like the slide to first appear on. Then select the hour, minute and either am or pm to determine the time.
You can optionally then make selections within the End Date field to determine the date and time it should no longer display.
By default all slides will display every day of the week. To remove the slide from particular days, simply click on the green box with the day's initial in it. For example, to hide the slide on Mondays, click the green "M" box to turn it red. It will then display on all days except Monday. Any days that are green will display the selected slide. Any days that are red will hide the selected slide.
Pro Tip: Use this when you're looking to communicate specific messages for a part of the week. For example, if you have an image or text slide that promotes a fish fry every Friday in the summer, set your start date to May 1 and your end date to October 1, then unselect all days except Friday.
Determine the time (in seconds) that the selected slide is visible. If zero (0) is entered int the field, then it will follow the Region's settings for "Delay."
Move the selected slide to a different region on your channel while retaining all of its current settings.
