I looked at my reports and got quite confused as to why the time shown in the report didn't match up with my expectations. Then I realized we're in different timezones. I'd like that to be shown in a way that makes more sense. Right off the bat I can imagine two different solutions:
- I get to define globally what timezone I'm in
- KBRemote uses the timezone the device is in
I can't honestly figure out which is better. In my case they would be the same, but it's entirely possible that might change at some point in the future, if I install a kiosk in a different timezone.
Would it be possible to add functionality to allow a forced injection of a custom header+value into the webview that is sent when doing a request? And also enable this in the device overrides?
I could then easily allow access to same webpage for my kiosks and people using a mobile/tablet, and still be able to separate them on the backend and serve different results (or track device usage). For example: The kiosks would get a super simple UI, and the mobile/tablet users would get a more full experience. (I understand that I can do this with URLs also, but that would mean a lot more to handle in the routes, for no real gain.)
Just injecting a standard header that must be unique (using reasonable standards) for Kiosk Browser, such as:
Kiosk-Browser-Client: <my value here>
Even better (but not really required for my needs) would be to allow me to name the header also: (This would probably be acceptable to set as a global variable, if it simplified things.)
My-Web-App: <my value here>
And also to allow the URL parameters used elsewhere in the system:
My-Web-App: <my value here_%KIOSKSERIAL%>
I have my main default profile where I have added some custom files
under the Manage Files section. However, I noticed when I cloned that
profile to make a copy for a new kiosk profile the FILES did not copy
over. This would be great if those also copied over as well, unless I
missed something it doesn't do it automatically thus I have to remember
to upload my custom files to each new cloned profile (kinda of defeats
the whole purpose of cloning)
I recently had a device offline for three days. When I finally got it back online it had forgotten the profile assigned to it. Or, more specifically, the URL override. Once I forced the profile from the management console it worked just fine again.
It would be nice to have the ability to set alerts for 'device not connected' within the KBRemote alerts types. Similar to how you can alert off of battery percentage, etc.
I use a kiosk with a large number of high resolution images which are cached.
Occasionally, we have to push new images immediately to each kiosk.
Is there a way to remotely wipe the cache of the kiosk.
I have tried forcing a restart of the application, but that does not wipe to cache.
Hello, I was trying to setup the custom alert messages and when you check to have a test email to send it doesn't send one.
