DAKboard OS devices utilize a unique display URL, giving them the ability to quickly and easily change the screen being shown on your DAKboard display.  This article discusses their use and how to deploy them if not in place on your device.

Add the Display URL to a DAKboard Display

On a computer/tablet etc., log in to your dakboard.com account and click on "Displays & Devices"

Click the More actions button next to the desired display, then select "Info":

Next, highlight and copy the Display URL field (or click the copy button next to the Display URL field):

Then, close the modal popup and click on the More actions button and select "Settings":

Note: your device needs to be powered on and connected to the same wifi network as your computer or tablet

Scroll down and paste your copied URL into the "DAKboard Private URL" text field:

Click "Save changes" and when complete, restart your device by unplugging the power and plugging the power back in.

Your device will now start up and begin showing the screen marked as "Default" in the Screens section.
