Just a few days ago I showed some workmates a storymap I'm building and I had to remark that they had to navigate the slides horizontally because they hadn't noticed and were just scrolling down and down. If the slideshow block had an autoplay option I'm sure they'd have noticed.

On the other hand I find the Slideshow block really useful to show:

  • easy to read chronologies with just a date/historical event title and infographics,
  • pics, names & occupation of the stuff,
  • quotes/testimonial/quick facts compilations
  • or a sneak peak of whatever you want.

I think an autoplay option would give an extra turn to to all these possibilities.
