The beta-period for PinToMind3 is over, Master/Minion is replaced by the new Network and some other updates.

The beta-period for PinToMind3 is over

  • Now all accounts can test our new version, PinToMind 3. 🎉 The contact person on the account starts the transition, and can invite other users by giving them a user role in PinToMind 3. If you as a user do not have rights to start the transition, you are informed to contact the contact person.
  • In PinToMind 3, we now have a menu item for “Transfer from Classic”. This makes it easier to transfer resources, images and devices from Classic.
  • Physical devices (screens) from Classic must be transferred one by one. We are now more clear with help if something needs to be done with hardware. You also get the opportunity to give the connected physical unit a separate name in the process.

Master/Minion is replaced by the new Network

  • All previous Master accounts have now been given a network of the same name. Previous Minion accounts have been added as members of the network.
  • New is that you can have networks created from all types of accounts. You no longer need to have a separate account for a network, as was required with Master.For a new network you must have an active account that follows a regular payment plan as a starting point, otherwise network as functionality is free.
  • All new networks must be created by support, please contact us if this is applicable.
  • As a network owner, you get insight into your network with dashboards, reports and tools. The most important thing now is that you can see which of your members are using PinToMind 3, and whether there is hardware in the network that needs follow-up to be able to use PinToMind 3.
  • We have created some Dashboards that the network owner can customize themselves as needed and according to what they have rights to see.
  • It is possible to set up reports in the network based on various parameters that the network owner wants.
  • As customers, you no longer need to contact support to set up a new account in a network. Everything can be done via an invitation link.
    • If the recipient does not have an account, he can create a new trial account via the link.
    • If you have an account, you can apply for membership in the network via the link.
    • If desired, the membership may also have to be approved by the network owner.
    • The network owner can also create a new account in the network directly from the “+” in the sidebar on the left, without logging out first. Then he does not need to approve the membership.
  • In PinToMind Classic most things work as before. What is new is that the network owner (formerly Master) cannot go directly into an account for a Minion/member account. They must confirm that they want to enter, and are told that access will be logged.

Other things that are new

  • Full screen has long been possible on all types of posts. We have now made it easier to set a post to be displayed in full screen on all channels, just by pressing one button. This has been added to post types that are typically displayed in full screen (like Video, Album/Image and Youtube).
  • Calendar. It is now possible to change the text size of a calendar. It is set to be slightly larger than before as default. If you choose 200%, the text becomes huge and can be read from a long distance. What comes over several lines also breaks better.
  • Improvements have been made in how to insert photos into albums.
  • We have added tabs for “+ New Channel”.
  • Various bug fixes.

2023-11-07 - Electricity price

  • We have made a major update to our post for electricity prices and opened up the Price of electricity post for all customers in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
  • We created price ranges as a resource for the individual countries, to be able to easily choose the price range you belong to.
  • In addition to the graph itself, it is also possible to select individual widgets that appear below the graph.
  • Choice of VAT to be included or not.
  • The graph has been changed to display steps instead of curves, since the price is the same for one hour at a time. The Y-axis is also more dynamic than before. The current hour is highlighted.

2023-09-12

  • Some visual changes around inserting resources into a post. The goal is to make it a little easier to reuse resources.
  • It is now possible to search by location in the world clock post instead of choosing a time zone. These places can also be reused in the weather post.
  • We have added a toolbar with simple formatting options in the extra text field for posts in PinToMind Go.

    • Support for splitting multi-day events into multiple events so that it becomes clearer that they last over several days.

This update contains many improvements related to the Text & Image-post in PinToMind 3. There are a number of bug fixes and several adjustments to make the post better for the future.

Some may find that posts that have already been published may look a little different, this especially applies to posts where the image appears next to the text. In this case, you can edit the post and adapt.

  • Display the whole image in a box in the post (like Auto in PinToMind Classic).

2023-03-07

We have increased the security regarding passwords, which now require at least 10 characters + numbers and upper and lower case letters.


2023-03-02

We have hidden the screen address/screen code in the list of screens. We have made a major clean-up in relation to date formatting. And, in PinToMind 3 “Devices” have become “Screens”.

Screen address hidden

We have hidden the screen address/screen code in the list of screens, and now only refer to start with the PinToMind Player app and connect/live. If someone still needs the screen address, this can now be found under “Settings” for the screen and the “Security” tab.

In addition, it is possible to connect a device directly, without having to select it after connection.

Date format

We have made a major clean-up in relation to date formatting. This has most impact in PinToMind 3, where you can now choose English with a 12-hour clock (am/pm) and a 24-hour clock.

Devices -> Screens

In PinToMind 3 “Devices” have become “Screens”.
