Live Display 4 Tips

Live Display Equipment Needed

Live Display Go Full-Screen

Let's get started

First, it's a good idea to see how Live Display works before hooking anything up πŸ€”. To do this, take out your laptop πŸ’» (do not use your phone), log into your TacBoard account and click the "Live" button. You should then see a version of your gallery that scrolls automatically and displays your gallery's phone number in the top right corner of the screen πŸ‘€. If you don't already have photos in your gallery, text πŸ“±πŸ’¬ a few photos to the phone number on the screen so you can see them slide out onto your screen and then scroll. Don't worry, you can delete these test photos at any time πŸ˜‰.
