Panel Background Image refresh

This may have been asked already, but I couldn't find it...


Is it possible to make available the option to refresh a URL based  background image like is available for Still Images Media Tiles? 

Waiting for Customer

Seems like a good idea, Bob - Thanks!


Can you give us an example (or a few) of what sort of background images / URLs that you would be using that would benefit from a Refresh Interval feature?



Though we know folks might actually prefer a method of setting an actual slide show of a list of images, which is a bit harder to implement. One interim solution to provide changing images on a Refreshed Image Tile (and it would be applicable to Panel Backgrounds if we added refresh) is the ActionPiXX utility provided by one of our Customers:  https://support.actiontiles.com/communities/12/topics/4446-actionpixx-photo-slideshow-media-tiles

I use the https://unsplash.com as background. They really have great wallpapers quality and variety. It was mentioned in this post:
