Remote Update Settings

Settings


Update Policy

Added in version 8.3

This setting allows you to choose when a remote update should occur.

Options:

  • Apply Immediately
  • Delay While Idle Timer is Active (default)

Delay While Idle Timer is Active will delay a remote update while a visitor is interacting the kiosk. 

When this option is selected and  Show Update Indicator is enabled, the app will delay downloading any files while an Idle Timer is active, indicating that a visitor is interacting with the kiosk.  When the visitor leaves and the Idle Timer executes, the app will then display the update indicator, download any pending files, and refresh if new content and/or settings are found.  

When this option is selected and  Show Update Indicator is disabled, the app will download the files in the background when an update is available, but the content will not refresh until the Idle Time Limit triggers.

If no value is configured for the Idle Time Limit or if it is set to zero, any update will be executed immediately.

Apply Immediately will allow a remote update to trigger even while a visitor is using the kiosk. 

Currently, this policy applies to: 

  • Remote Settings Control
  • Managed App Configuration
  • Remote Update of Local Files
  • Dropbox Synchronization
  • Remote updates through the Remote Management Server

Show Update Indicator

This toggle allows you to show a progress indicator while a remote update is being downloaded and applied.  This can make testing and troubleshooting easier as it is obvious when an update is occurring. 

Default: On

When enabled, the progress indicator and Update Indicator Text will be shown whenever an update occurs via the following features:

  • Remote Settings Control
  • Managed App Configuration
  • Remote Update of Local Files
  • Dropbox Synchronization
  • Remote updates through the Remote Management Server

Update Indicator Text

This setting allows you to customize the text for the Update Indicator. The default text is set to “Updating. . .".
