    After a short period the live tiles start displaying. Five distinct live tiles rotate displaying your environmental usage statistics, ratings, tips, etc. A new set of five tiles are retrieved every 30 minutes.

Windows Tile deployment

Windows has very limited options to automatically deploy the live tile through the organization.

You should provide instructions to your users on how to access the Environmental Dashboard and install the live tiles on Windows 8.1 and above. These instructions could be provided in an email or on the organization’s intranet. The instructions should include information from Windows Live Tile Installation and Using the Environmental Dashboard.
