Venus Control Suite made some big changes over the last few months! When users log in, they will experience a different ‘home page,’ called the Launchpad. Take a look below to see how these changes will affect what you are seeing in the software. 


The new Launchpad replaced the Dashboard page that you were used to seeing when you first logged in. The features that made the Dashboard great can be found in the Monitoring app, which we’ll get to in a little bit. 

The new Launchpad which provides a more streamlined navigational experience on the login page.  Here’s a preview of what you’ll see. *Please note that the final design of the page may change as we continue to work on this feature. 


The Launchpad presents your account information, such as username and package, as well as providing quick and easy access to all of your Venus apps. We are looking to further enhance the Launchpad with some quick actions to make your commonly used workflows even easier. 

These new features streamline creating and scheduling content as well as navigating between the various apps in the software. 

Monitoring App 

The Monitoring app is where you can check the status of your display. 


Just like in the existing Dashboard, you’ll see your recently played messages on your display. If you have a webcam, you can check that as well to see the status of your display. All of the features you’ve grown to love are now in a cleaner, sleeker look to compliment the other apps within VCS. 


If you have the Professional or Enterprise package, your Liveview which will show you exactly what is playing on your display at that moment to help you schedule with confidence and quickly troubleshoot any content issues that may arise. For those not in these packages, you still retain the Recent view that you’ve always had. 

If you have more than 15 displays you will see a condensed view of the tiles that can be easily expanded to see all of the above information. 


You’ll also have filters on the right so you can sort your displays a specific way and can even quickly pull up any displays that are experiencing errors.
