Joan on displays

Note: Joan on displays is now a part of the Wayfinding feature in the Professional Sign plan, and it can be individually enabled on your Joan Portal account.

You can now show the entire schedule of both current and future meetings across your resources on an external device thanks to Joan on displays. Making that big TV in your office’s lobby finally useful!

Technical requirements

Joan on displays can be used on any external display as long as:

  • Has stable internet connectivity
  • Has Internet browsing capabilities. This can be in the form of a Smart TV or any streaming device that can make a TV “smart” such as an Airtame, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, etc.

The size, resolution, ratio, and orientation of the device do not matter. Joan on displays is fully responsive and will adapt to any screen setting.
