Specify a list of idle URLs to call

User487 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 2
Use Case: museum exposition with different objects. Each object has its own web page. Tablets with the Kiosk Browser in the room allow detailed examination, but when idle/not being used, we would like to switch between the pages. Example: Idle: show object 1 url for 1 min, then show object 2 url for 1 min, ... It could be sequentially or also random.

Trio AXS Quick Actions Support

User230 2 years ago in Remote Management • updated 2 years ago 4

Hello, I was wondering if you can enable quick actions for the Trio AXS. The reason that I am asking this is becuase the actions can never complete.

Answer

It must launch something (maybe invisible). Kiosk browser always sends everything to the background which will stop it from functioning. You can try turning off the setting "hide system dialogs" to see if this makes it work but otherwise there is nothing that can be done as this is functioning as designed.

Remember kiosk website login credentials

Bruce Minchinton 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 1

Would it be feasible to have a setting that allows for storing of login credentials (username/email & passcode) for the kiosk website?

I imagine it would nut suit every implementation of Kiosk Browser, but it would suit me.

More Information on Devices page

User620 2 years ago in Remote Management • updated by Richard 2 years ago 6

Please show more information across the rows on the Devices page. Presently all you have is the device name and the battery %. There is so much room to add more information! At least show whether the unit is *Plugged In* or not and *Charging* or not. This is essential when one has numerous devices.

Device name in Kiosk Title

User343 2 years ago • updated by Richard 2 years ago 2
It would be great if we could display the devicename (name in Kbremote.net) in the kiosk title. We use a four letter code to identify all our devices, so if we could add a string like %DEVICENAME% which would be replaced in the device title with the device name it makes all support and identification much easier for us.

As this was simple to implement its now up and running. You can use %DEVICENAME% variable in the "Custom App Title" field within profiles.


Device name in device list

%DEVICENAME% variable in profile

User285 2 years ago in Remote Management • updated by Richard 2 years ago 1
Hi, when I log in and update my profile my video file for screensaver is missing, when i do it without logging in with the same profile the video is playing????
Help me please...
Answer

If you are using remote management you must upload the file via "profile files", you cannot just place files on the device manually as they will be deleted by remote management (screensaver image/video or custom access denied/error page). Please see the "uploading files" article.

Shutdown with Video Screensaver on

User848 2 years ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 years ago 10

Hi, for some reason if the video screensaver is playing, the kiosk doesn't shutdown at the time required - if you touch the screen the kiosk immediately shuts down, any idea what causes this?
