Installation

  1. Download and Run the latest installer package (MSI)
  2. Change your screensaver to WebCycle (it does not do this automatically)
  3. Click Settings to update the screensaver settings and enter a few URLs for it to cycle through
  4. Click Preview to make sure it cycles through all your URLs correctly

Screensaver Settings

Enter one URL per line, it can be any URL, but I find it's best if there's no wierd javascript popping up windows and causing trouble in the background.

For Reporting Services reports, here are a few tips

  • Obtain the following information about your report and SSRS install
    • Service URL (ex: http://reports.yourdomain.com/ReportServer)
    • Report Path (ex: ?%2fPath+To+Your+Report%2fReport+Name)
  • Construct your URL and add the rendering arguments to the end so that the service doesn't render toolbars and clears your session
    • http://reports.yourdomain.com/ReportServer?%2fPath+To+Your+Report%2fReport+Name&rc:Toolbar=false&rs:Command=Render&rs:ClearSession=true
    • Common querystring parameters for SSRS are:
      • &rc:Toolbar=false
      • &rs:Command=Render
      • &rs:ClearSession=true

Working with Reporting Services report parameters

You can disable the parameters bar and specify parameter values in the url as well with the following syntax:
  • &rc:Parameters=false
  • &Parameter+Name=Paramater+Value

Note that when doing this, you have to URL encode any special characters in the parameter value, so if you wanted to specify a member in an OLAP cube, you would have to encode the ampersand (&) to %26 and you might end up with something like this:
  • &Paramater+Name=[Dimension].[Hierarchy+Name].%26[1337]
