Tip 1: Use autoplay to create an automatic slide show. Set the transition time and Showell will autoplay your presentation. 

Tip 2: You can choose a presentation that opens whenever an user is inactive for a certain period of time. You don't have to manually open the presentation after each person has left the device. Especially useful in high volume events where people come and go to your stand.
