Remote Control rather than remote viewing

Hi There,

New to Info-Beamer and looking to hopefully use this for PowerBI reporting wallboards.

As PowerBI requires O365 login is there a way to ideally swap from remote viewing through VNC to remote control (Allowing for account login) or to allow peripheral connection into the device to perform the same task?

Kind Regards
Tim

info-beamer doesn’t have any mechanism for mouse/keyboard base remote control. Manual on-device customization is discouraged as it generally leads to unpredictable results (“which device did I already modify?”, “the device no longer shows my content after a reboot”) and doesn’t scale well.

As for login: The browser package does have some automation, but results might vary depending on how the login mechanism works. Does PowerBI not have any mechanism to share a board without explicit login credentials but with a secret url? This seems to hint that is it possible, but looks like it is intended for data that’s really public (“Microsoft may display the report on a public website”).
