Heartbeat - Create a media player monitoring list

Heartbeat is a function to monitor your screens and media players. You will get an email if the screen/media player is offline so you can resolve the issue as soon as possible. The issue could be that the media player is turned off or have lost the network connection. You can create several lists so you can assign media players to different emails. 
If you don't see the option heartbeat in your menu you don't have rights to edit heartbeat. Contact your PLAYipp company admin to get more info.
