  • Name: Name of your Screen Share app, this is the name of the app in your asset list. It will not be displayed on your screens.
  • Title: Enter a Title to be displayed on your screen. For example: "Welcome to Conf. Room N719"
  • Message: Enter a message to be displayed on your screen. Could be some instruction or rules on how to use the room.
  • Expires in: The 4 digit presenter codes by default is set to expire every 10 minutes. This is for security reason, so someone cannot save the code and use it days, weeks later.
  • Background Playlist: by default, the app play a few images in the background beside aesthetic purpose, it could also help prevent your screens from having stuck pixels. You can select your own playlist too if you'd like. Note that only images will be played.
  • Text Color: Default is white, you can pick other color if you'd like.
Click Save.
After Saving, you can Preview the wall. It may take several seconds for the app to load.
