How do I display multiple Panels on a screen

thisotherdavid 2 years ago in Panels (dashboards) • updated by Terry (ActionTiles) (Co-Founder) 2 years ago 4

This is a noob question but just signed up today.  Evaluating whether or not to purchase.  I've created three panels.  Added my things to those (simple: lighting, doors and locks, heating and cooling), now I want to display those three panels at the same time on my android tablet for my wife so she doesn't have to navigate smartthings.  I know this was the whole reason this was built, I'm just being stupid and missing this some how.  I did search the forum and knowledge base...

Multiple Tilesets can be displayed on the same web page, but not multiple Panels.


This is a good opportunity to use the Tileset Copy feature:

  1. Create a new Panel for your wife, but leave it empty.
  2. Go to the Panel Builder (edit) screen for one of the existing Panels, and select the Tileset Menu (the ... at the top of each Tileset) and select Copy Tileset.
  3. Choose your wife's new Panel as the destination.
  4. Repeat #2 and #3 until all the desired Tilesets have been copied to the new Panel.

Thanks Terry.  That dawned on me just before I read your response.  Panels must be for different "displays" or tablets or whatever.  Got it all set up now thanks!!!

FYI, you could set-up a simple HTML page with iFrames to show different panels side-by-side. Be aware that you'll need to strictly define the sizes of the iFrames to make it work cleanly...


I have my own domain configured so that I can shuffle from page to page without loading a new panel, but having them show up beside each-other wouldn't be too challenging to achieve as well.
