Help: Using Dakboard as Fully screensaver?

rlburkes 10 months ago in Browsers Tablets Phones / Android • updated by Franctel 10 months ago 10

I’m having issues with Dakboard and the screensaver. It doesn’t seem to appropriately size the content, so it’s pretty poorly laid out (most content is offscreen) it looks fine in other browsers on the fire so it seems to be related to fully. I was wondering how you had Dak configured assuming it looked good for you?

I found out my issue, Fully has an option under  Settings > Web Zoom and Scaling  for “Use Wide Viewport” which was on . Turning that off fixed my issue with Dak as the screensaver.

How do you have this set up as a screensaver?  I can't find a app that will launch this.

If you're using Android, Fully Kiosk Browser can launch it and it's pretty incredible for using with AT:

I love the fact it can use the tablet's camera to wake the screen when you walk up to it.


In the app settings it's under the device management section, just use your Dakboard private URL found in https://dakboard.com/options/account .

What Screensaver are you using?

I’m using a Dakboard dashboard. 

I was hoping to use dakboard as a screensaver, so when I interact (touch) the tablet, dakboard would disappear and land on actiontiles.  I tried using fully but can’t seem to find a working solution.   I thought about just using chrome and living with the browser tabs and the address bar, but it’s not visually appealing.  What do others do to go from Dakboard to AT?

I just set this up after seeing this post.  Have you tried this:


-copy "private url" from dakboard account settings

-go to fully under settings, device management, screensaver url, paste it there

-then set your screensaver timer (above screensaver url)


This should work as long as you don't have motion detection enabled.  If you do, dakboard disappears as soon as you pass by.

I am using it exactly like you've described. I have Dakboard set as the screen saver, and do not use the motion detection, therefore it requires me to tap the screen (which is always on, never sleeps) to reveal my panel.

I am using a older tablet and fully kiosk is not compatible. So,I am trying Kiosk Browser which does work ok but for some reason does not like some icons in AT (scenes and Sonos) and can logout of AT after longer periods.  I have adjusted settings and has not solved the problem.  The screensaver I am using now is Photo Slides Lite.  It is ok and shows the time like Dak but not temperature which this time of year in WI it is helpful to know its -4.
