I'm going to throw this in the bug column.... there is no "are you sure" confirmation when you click on "delete" when editing items from MyMedia. You click "delete" its just gone. I've accidentally deleted things three times because of this.
Possibility to adjust the duration that the pop-up stays open. Currently, I find that it stays open for too long.
And SHM keypad, the numbers are too small.
This may have been covered already, but I can't find it.
In creating a custom file header it would be nice to have some formatting options. I have 2 tiles side by side on one of my panels.
One says 'Outdoor Humidity' the other 'Indoor Humidity'. The outdoor one is just long enough that it shows up on 2 lines. The indoor shows up on 1 line.
I tried various ways to get the indoor on 2 lines as I think it looks better, but the only way I found was to add additional characters such as a dash. Adding spaces didn't work, it appears they are ignored.
Just my 2 bits worth.
It would be nice if the tile size and passcode settings were in the Tileset setting instead of the Panel setting...
For the tile size, I have a lot of tiles on a tablet...medium is too large, medium-small is too small...if I could use medium for one panel for my buttons and controls, and then create another panel in medium-small or even small for battery indicators (don't need them that large) that would be perfect!
For passcode settings, I want everyone in the house to have the passcode to control the alarm, but I don't want the bastards changing my thermostat. :) Having it on it's own panel or something with it's own passcode would be nice!
Apologies for the basic questions, I did search through all settings menus and also on this forum but couldn't find an answer.
In one tileset, I have a 2x2 tile followed by two 1x1 tiles. I would like the two 1x1 tiles to be in a column, as opposed to a row. As an example, in the attached screenshot, I would like the 'Posh lights' tile to be underneath the 'TV lights' tile as opposed to the right of it.
Secondly, is it possible to hide the status of a switch on a tile? I.e. the 'on' or 'off' wording at the bottom of the tiles.
I am currently in the free trial time, but plan on purchasing a licence.
Thank you in advance.
Please note that Changes to the Tileset Title and/or "Hide Tileset title on Panel" property are no longer updated and saved after making edits.
Tested on Safari and Chrome browsers, both mobile and desktop.
The title is pretty self explanatory, but I should probably explain.
The current layout is functional, but takes a significant amount of time to get configured to a specific screen size or resolution. Allowing the user to start with a grid size of their choosing will allow them to verify the correct size before they begin their layout. Once they have found the correct size, the user could then drag and drop their available tiles onto the grid.
This would eliminate all of the back and forth necessary to do a new panel layout, as well as the need for blank tiles to be added.
When trying to link my SmartThings location to Action Tiles, I click "Home" in the location drop down box, click authorize and I just get an error saying "Client is not associated with a SmartApp in location Home", whatever that means. Any ideas?
It took a while, but super support from Brad at SmartThings resolved this issue today. 😁

Thank-you for your understanding while this unique issue was being handled.
AUTHORIZE and SYNCHRONIZE buttons are missing from unlicensed yet unexpired Location Detail page. These buttons appear once a Location is Licensed.
The My Locations / (+) Add Location function can be reused at any time and will not add a duplicate Location. This brings up the same SmartThings "Thing Authorization web page" as the missing AUTHORIZE button.
This Add Location function also performs the SYNCHRONIZE activity if you need to force ActionTiles to import new Routines and name changes on Things.
Fully added a new option a while back, called Application Launcher. I didn't think it was very useful, until I realized that it could 1. open URL shortcuts, 2. embed html/JS to customize it, and 3. apply custom icons for the shortcuts.
It occurred to me, that Application launcher could potentially be a way to have a constant launcher/navigation panel, and Actiontiles could be embedded in an iframe within it. It worked...but there's a catch. Once you click on one of the links in the launcher, it loads the page in a new frame, and you lose the launcher. I sent the fully team to see if there was a workaround, but I figured I would ask here to see if there was any code-slingers who might be able to figure out a work around.
Here's a Screenshot of the launcher running (at the bottom) with AT in an iframe. (Please don't criticize the watermark. I have 3 paid licenses for Fully, but not on my phone, where I was doing the editing earlier.)
Meh. I talked ot the Fully Developer and it appears this is idea is a bust. You would need to host a new launcher/iframe combo for each panel....which doesn't make things any easier than just doing it all yourself.
So I guess it could be valuable if you just wanted a single panel, with some custom links/app launchers with custom icons on the same page...but as far as a dedicated notification pane, this is not the solution. O well.
I see in my Smarthings logs that there is a threshold for Power Meters which seems to be set at 15%. For low power devices this means that a 1w change will be over the threshold, resulting in very frequent updates. Is there anyway to change the threshold from 15% in the app / website?
If you didn't need to constantly click the vertical dots to access the menu that only has 2 or 3 options it would make bulk editing quicker. Seems like a good way to cut the amount of clicks in half.
I have a ceiling fan that has 3 hue bulbs in it but ST shows it as 3 devices, which technically it is... but i would like to toggle all as a group by a single tile. I’m not too concerned about controlling independently and i don’t want the clutter of 3 tiles.
After setting up individual tiles in the tile builder when selecting the Tile Options next to the new tile, the "Tile Settings" pop up window appears but no longer has a scroll bar to scroll down to other options such as battery percentage or icon.
Changing the Icon for a tile does not update the icon shown next to the tile in panel builder. BUT, the icon is updated on the Panel when in View mode.
For example, I changed the icon for a Wemo switch in the panel builder to the xmas tree icon. In panel Builder, the icon next to the item is still showing as a switch. But when I run the panel on my device, it is shown as the xmas tree icon.
Seems to be common to any icon I attempt to change to.
First off apologies if this has already been requested. My request is that the ability to edit tile header / Title names be moved to the main panel builder screen currently you have to click the three dots next to a tile and then select edit tile. What would make building panels so much faster, is if you could click on the name and edit the Tile header. I included the screen shot below for reference to the area I would like to be able to edit.
I'm not talking about little burgers.
The Slider functionality that was added for Tile Sizing, Tile Spacing and Corner Radius, it would be very beneficial to have a - on the far left and a + on the far right of the slider so that we have the ability to increase or decrease by 1.
Having to either tap or manually slide the slider is very difficult and trying to pinpoint an exact number takes quite some time. It's great for coming close to a number, and then being able to adjust 1 by one with plus or minus would be a great value add for everyone. I know I'm not the only one that this is tedious and cumbersome process for.
Understood; but we had to focus on the immediate issues folks were reporting in some browsers with Sliders functioning inconsistently.
Input Boxes are completely reliable. We will keep an eye on this topic, but may have to reframe it now that the Sliders for Tile Styling are no longer in the app.
Add a global "Friendly" name field to "Things" Inventory to alleviate need to manually override Tile Name
Some Things are commonly used on many Panels. Globally customizing the name (Label) requires editing the Label field for it every instance of every Thing Tile on every Panel.
Managing Thing or Tile attributes on a "global" level (i.e., closer to the Location - Thing Inventory) makes a lot of sense, but requires some significant development overhead.
I think the benefits are pretty clear, but we have to prioritize this with everything else, so don't forget to Vote on your own Topic, thanks!
