Tips, Tricks, and Notes
- DAKboard is continually developing its services with new features and updated security. Occasionally this may result in a loss of functionality on an iPad displaying DAKboard if the browser is not updated regularly. If this occurs try to update the device if possible to the latest browser available.
- For users unable to link their browsers to DAKboard as described above you can always enter your Custom Screen's URL manually into your TV browser, or log into your account from your iPad browser and choose View on the screen you wish to run on the TV. Once this is entered, bookmark the URL for quicker access the next time you use it this way.
