This option is set per each display device, available under App Setting.

This change was reverted due to user demand.

Thank you for the Window Shade Capability.  It works great with my Springs Window Fashion Shades.

Can someone explain what the "Window Shade" functionality is?

Duh...  sorry...  I was thinking something to do with Microsoft Windows and some cool "shading" effect....  I looked right past what it actually was....lol

regarding the auto reload. Can this auto refresh/reload a panel?  I have actiontiles on an iPad and would be handy to have it auto reload main panel every so often but I’ve just tried it and nothing happens. 

Re auto reload: it's called Auto Reload in the builder under App Settings. As the name implies it is per device.

John, make sure to visit the App Settings page one the device and activate this option.

yeah I see the settings. I clicked on 30 mins. Then loaded up my panel for my iPad but it doesn’t auto reload. Am I misunderstanding on what this actually does?


Hi John,

What's the iOS version on your iPad?

12.5.5 here. As far as the iPad mini 1 will go. Auto reload does not seem to work on this device / iOS. Any ideas?
