no more request screen

Post by Paradigm Karaoke »

when we have enough requests to finish the night, we have a few options currently.
1) click "Freeze".
this works, but still allows people to go through the entire request process and gives a small message in the same way that is shows the request was sent. The problem becomes that people don't notice it is different at all and since they went through the process like normal think it was added.

2) click "Go Offline".
This also works, but only shows a white screen and tiny letters saying "server is offline".
the normal reaction from many people nightly is to come over and tell me "hey....it says your server is offline" because it makes no sense to them...granted being intoxicated doesn't help.

my ideas that I see
1) when clicking "Freeze", have the no more song's message appear when they click on the song in place of the normal "request slip" page.
this way they can not continue to attempt submission of the request and it is blatantly obvious to them why.
as usual with my ideas, continue the customization options you have added into everything by allowing us to write the message in whatever verbiage the host prefers to keep consistency throughout the user interface.

2) when clicking "Go Offline", allow an image to show on the remote system, stating we have enough requests.
something as simple as if-then with the checkbox like happens in the custom announcement screen.
if checked, display this image file and refresh the remote screen. Much like what happens with the auto refresh in the search screens.
again, this allows with keeping consistency in the user interface to match whatever the individual host company wishes to display.

This sounds like a good idea. Piotr, is this request doable for the near future?

I currently do this. The settings has the ability to play a video or display a slide show video. I created a video using Power Point indicating that I'm no longer taking requests. I pull up the slide show and display it in between singers when I'm full for the night. I also pasted a preloaded scrolling message to correspond with the slide show. Maybe something to consider in the meantime.

i like where you are going and do something similar, my post was about showing the image on the kiosk screen, not the singer screen.
