Follow the instructions that appear to finish linking the iPad with your DAKboard account.
Add an Icon to your Home Screen:
After your iPad is linked and displaying your DAKboard screen, you can add this Safari page to your home screen to quickly access your DAKboard screen in the future. When launching DAKboard from the home screen icon, it will hide the address bar in the browser. To add your Safari page to your home screen, click the Share button at the end of the URL, then select Add to Home Screen (you may need to scroll to find this):
Optionally you can change the name, and then click Add. Reopen your DAKboard screen using the new home screen icon to enjoy a full-screen DAKboard!

Lastly, update the settings on the iPad to keep the screen on all the time. In the iPad settings, go to Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock then set the expiration time to Never.
