The MSPbots dashboards have a share function that allows clients to present multiple dashboards in a loop on a screen. Called the Rotating Dashboard view, this function presents dashboards one after the other at specific intervals. When shown on a screen, the rotating view offers a way to display dashboards without user intervention. The presentation can be stopped and resumed when the user clicks the Stop and Play button. 

Users can create multiple rotating dashboard views, which can be stored for future access or deleted when no longer needed.
