Rotate images on your dashboard

Every now and then customers ask us for rotating images to add some fun and life to their dashboards. This article explains a fun way of doing this.

Example rotating image source

edgecats.net is a site that, when visited, displays a random cat gif. Used in conjunction with our image integration, you can get some amusing results.

To create a widget that displays a new image after every refresh, follow these steps:

  1. On your dashboard, click Add widget.
  2. Search for Image using the Search sources field.

    Alternatively, you can also scroll down the alphabetical list of integrations until you reach the Image widget.
  3. Click the Image widget.
  4. Give it a Title.
  5. Enter a URL path. You can find an image's URL by right clicking the image on your browser and choosing Copy image address/location.

    Example

    You could create a widget with roating cat gifs by entering http://edgecats.net/ in the path field.

  6. Select a Reload time.
  7. Click Add widget.
  8. And you're done!
