Give admin users limited access to Portal

Give admin users limited access to Portal

In some cases, you would want to limit access to the portal for some users. It could be that you need someone to update screen savers or QR code links, but don't want them to be able to change the club and course data. In this case, you can now have limited admin users that can only access what you allow. This feature is in an early stage, and you need to contact us to set this up for you. We are in the process of developing a "user admin" menu that will allow you as an admin to manage users and access rights.

Replace Mobile embed QR on Terminal

The QR code on the Terminal can be changed to link to the mobile version of the Conversion Table. This makes it easy for the user to have the table on their phone when meeting their playing partners at the first tee. In case the players are undecided on what tee to play and take this decision just before beginning the round. Simply check the option in the "Clubhouse Terminal" windows for "Replace QR in Terminal with the mobile QR code".

Design Guide for creating screen saver images for your Golf Club

The design guide for How Many Strokes Screen saver is made to ensure that your screen saver always looks good and is in the correct format. The Terminal will always scale the screen saver to fit the screen.  If your picture is square or in landscape mode, the result will be a distortion of the picture where the proportions are not right. A small number of pixel differences would work in most cases as they might not be visible, but why not get it right the first time and get the best possible result? You will find the design guide directly in the Portal where you upload new screen savers, but you can also download it HERE and print it out for future reference.

Is your Terminal connected to the internet

Is your Terminal connected to the internet?

Your How Many Strokes Terminal will work fine without an internet connection. Everything you need to run the Terminal is saved locally on the device. This includes Course and Tee data, but also screen saver images and videos. If the is no internet it will not be possible to update the Terminal with added information. We recommend that the Terminal is always connected to the internet with WIFI or a Network cable. If you are using Power Over Internet (POE) to power the Terminal, the internet connection is automatically delivered through the cabling (provided that the POE is connected to a router or switch on the other end)

Sort your Golf Courses on the Terminal

Sort your Golf Courses on the Terminal

Did you know that you can sort your Golf Courses on the Terminal to show the courses in a specific order? In some cases, you would want to have your 9-hole, Intermediate, and Par-3 courses shown as the last courses. Many of our customers have multiple 9-hole courses that are combined into several 18-hole courses with the 9-hole courses as separate options. In this case, it would be possible to move the 9-hole courses below the others. You simply sort the courses in the Portal by dragging the course to the right position in the course list.

Customize button layout on Terminal

Customize button layout on Terminal

Many Golf Clubs have three or more courses. Often it is a combination of several 9-hole courses that can be combined. This, together with long course names can be difficult to fit into the default Terminal setup. You can now customize the button layout and get the exact layout that looks good with your number of courses. Besides changing the layout, the text size in the buttons can be changed as well.

Here are three examples from one of our customers who has ten courses:

Operating the Terminal in a hot environment

Operating the Terminal in a hot environment

We all enjoy the sun and the heat to some extent and most golf is played in the summer. The Terminal can handle a lot of heat, but in some cases, it can be too much. There is no danger to the Terminal. It has a built-in thermal sensor that will detect if it is getting too hot. First, it will slow down to prevent too much heat generated from its internal power use, and eventually, it will stop all processes from running to protect it from damage. If this happens, simply turn it off, let it cool down and it should be ready for use again. To avoid too elevated temperatures, do not place the Terminal in direct sunlight in a non-cooled environment. It is not something we see very often, but it has happened. An operating temperature is the allowable temperature range of the local ambient environment at which an electrical or mechanical device operates. The device will operate effectively within a specified temperature range which varies based on the device function and application context and ranges from 0 degrees Celsius/32 degrees Fahrenheit to 70 degrees Celsius/158 degrees Fahrenheit. Outside this range of safe operating temperatures, the device may fail.

Why it is a clever idea to lock the Terminal before use

We recommend that you lock the Terminal after the installation is done. You will find the steps in the installation manual on how to Hide the navigation bar. It might not seem that important, but in some cases, we have seen some creative use go into settings and changed how the Terminal is operating. This is obviously something that you don't want, and to prevent that you simply hide the navigation bar from the users, and then the only way to access the settings on the Terminal is by restarting it with the power button on the back.
