Domain Properties

You can access Broadsign Administrator from many different locations, and with many different users, at the same time.

Broadsign provides many properties and settings you can configure that will impact your whole domain. Note that domain properties differ from application options in this regard: application options affect your local install only.

To access the domain properties, go to: Domain Properties Menu > Edit Domain.

For more information about the domain properties menu, see Search, Help, Options and Domain Properties.

 

In the General section of the domain properties, you will find the following:
