In this article you will find everything you can set in the settings!
This article contains some features that are not included in all packages. More info you can find here: pricing page.
The "profile settings" only affect your user. They have no effect on the other users in your system.
Here you can change your data, see in which workspaces and groups you are member and manage them.
Here you can change the language of the user interface(1). This will switch your entire interface to english or german.
You can also select the preferred language for content. If several languages have been created in the "languages" tab, you can choose which language you need most often. For example, if you set it to english, every slide and presentation you open from now on will be displayed in english first (if available). Of course you can still choose between the different translations.
Transition between slides(2)
Here you can choose transition effects(2) for your presentations. If you don't choose another one, "slide" is preselected. This means that the next slide will "slide in" from the right. You can also set the duration of the animation with the slider below. The transition effect cannot be selected for each slide individually, but only for you as user. All presentations you start from now on will have the selected transition effect until you change it again. The administrator determines which effects you can choose. You can find more information here: Change slide transition effect
If you are presenting on a touch device, you can open the enter menu(3) during the presentation by tapping on the right or left edge on your screen. Here in the settings you can choose whether it should be the left or right border. For example, if you have a button on the very left side of your screen in your presentation, you should place the Enter menu on the right side, otherwise you will open the Enter menu instead of selecting your button. You can find more about the Enter menu here: What is the Enter menu?
In the menu item "Kiosk Mode" you will find all settings for this. First you have to activate it in the upper right corner(1).
You can make the following settings in Kiosk Mode:
Auto reset presentation(1)
Disable all user interactions(3)
Activating PIN code(4)
1. Automatic resetting of the presentation
Remember the example of the Touch Terminal mentioned earlier. Somebody views different products and leaves. Someone else comes to the terminal and wants to view some products. But now the screen shows the view that the previous user opened, not the beginning of the presentation. How can you avoid that? Simply by activating the "Automatic reset of the presentation" option. This means that after the presentation has been unused for a certain time (between 50 and 3000 seconds), it will automatically be reset to the first slide.
2. Autoplay of the presentation
Autoplay allows the presentation to run by itself.
The next slide will be displayed after the set time. (5 to 120 seconds).
If a video is playing on a slide that is running longer than the set time for autoplay, the system will not switch to the next slide until the video has played back completely.
3. Disable all user interactions
This setting deactivates all interaction possibilities with presono. Specifically it means that keystrokes like for example, Enter, B, W, Next, or the space bar, have no effect. This makes sense if you automatically play a presentation in an endless loop (for example on a touch terminal) and don't want the visitors to be able to interact with it. In this mode the presentation can only be left by pressing the ESC key.
4. Activating the PIN code
If the Kiosk mode is active, a PIN code can also be activated. This prevents unauthorized persons from breaking out of the presentation. If the PIN code is activated, you can set whether it should appear before the enter menu can be called or before leaving the presentation. Of course you can choose the PIN code yourself. You can configure it via "enter PIN code". Should you forget it, you can have it displayed via the eye symbol below.
You can find out more about the kiosk mode here: What is Kiosk Mode?
Here you can find all users working in your instance. You can see the name, the mail address and a status (whether the user has activated his account or not). Furthermore you can see the workspaces of the users and in which groups they are members. In the toolbar you can also choose how the users should be sorted and ranked. You can find more information here: Manage rights & groups
Here you find all user groups existing on your platform. General rights in the software are assigned on a group basis. You can see the name of the group, the group members, the assigned workspaces and you have an indicator how many general rights this group has. Here you can also adjust the sorting in the upper right corner. More about the settings you find here: Manage rights & groups
In the workspaces you will find all workspaces and sub-workspaces that are in your platform. In the overview you can see the name of the workspace, which users can work in it and which groups. By clicking on workspaces, you can edit them. You can find more information here: Manage Workspaces
Here you can manage your categories. You can create new ones, move, rename or delete existing ones. If there are subcategories for a category, you can display them by clicking on the main category. You can read more about using categories here: Categories, Workspaces & Rights
Create new categories
To create a new category, click on "add new category" at the top of the level where you want to create a new category. Alternatively, you can also click on "new" at the top right.
A window appears in which you have to set the name(1) of the category and in which workspace(2) the category should be located. If you click on the plus(3) below the name, you can translate the name of the category. When you are finished, click "save(4)".
Rename, translate and delete categories
If you want to rename or delete a category, click it. You get two icons:
an X icon to delete the category and a pen icon to edit it.
If you want to delete a category that still contains content, a window appears. You can choose where the content should be moved to. You will also get a warning if there are any subcategories left in the category.
If you want to move one or more (sub)categories, click "move" in the upper right corner.
Now select(1) the categories you want to move. When you have selected all of them, you can click on "move selected categories here(2)" at the top of each level. Then everything you have marked will be moved here.
Here you can define new languages, which you can use to translate your slides. German is set as default language. This means that if there is no translation for a slide, the german version will be used.
If you select a language, you can view and change the details. You can also delete the language with the trashcan icon.
If you want to create a new language, choose "add new language" in the top right corner. If you click "language(1)", you can choose all possible languages. You can also enter the name of a language and click to select it.
At "property(2)" you have to choose a country or flag.

In the "configurations" you can make general settings for your platform and all users on it.
1. font size
For the font size you can activate one or more percentage values. This means that if you allow the font size to be changed in an area of a layout template, then the user can choose between the values you allow here. 100% is always the value that was set in the layout template. More about layout templates you can find here: Creating Layout Templates
2. system fonts

3. font family
With the font family you can upload your own font! Click on "Add a new font" in the upper right corner. Then a window will appear in which you can drag a .woff file, or you click in the area and select the file directly on your computer. Then click on "upload".
Next you have to name your font(1). Then you can select the font weight(2) and style(3).
You can also upload several styles at once by clicking on "Add a new font"(4). You can delete fonts by using the trash can icon (5). When you are done, click "save".
Now your fonts appear in all templates when you select a font at the top of the toolbar!
You can save each color for quick selecting. These will appear wherever you can set a color (in the template and slide editor). In the template editor, for example, you can use the colors for the background color of an area as well as for the font or border color. In the slide editor you will find the color selection where changing the text color in the template is allowed.
To add a new color, click "Add a new color(1)" in the upper right corner. A color will appear where you can assign a name(2) and enter the exact color values(3) (either using HEX code or RGB values). Or click or drag your color directly in the preview(4) until you have a color you like. Then click "save".
If you want to change or delete a color, select the color, change the values to the right or use the trash can icon. The color will then no longer appear in the quick selection in the Template or Slide Editor. If you change a color, this will have no effect on the elements where the color was previously applied.
Here you can configure which transition effects users can choose at your platform. Here you can select or deselect a total of five effects (1). Depending on how many are activated, the users of your platform can then choose between the respective effects in their "profile settings".
You can also set a standard slide transition effect (2) that is selected as long as the individual users have not yet made any settings for themselves.
With the slider (3) in the upper right corner you activate the setting for your users that they can choose how long the respective animation should last for the individual effects.
If you know CSS, you can create new global "styles". These can then be used in templates. Click on the arrow at the bottom in the template editor and enter the respective class name in an area. The CSS style will then be applied to this area.
You can also define CSS styles per template set!
