Get screen dump from a Door Sign or Meeting Directory
For system admins, it could be a cumbersome task to be sure how a given Door Sign or Meeting Directory looked like. Earlier, this would require the system admin to walk to the actual signage. Hence, we have included this new feature in our interface. You are now able to request a screen dump from a Digital Sign Client device. It is located under CONFIGURATION, Devices to request a screen dump.
