URL Presets

URL presets allow providing a short name for any Ontime URL.

It serves two primary purposes:

  • Providing dynamic URLs for automation or unattended screens
  • Simplifying complex URLs

The configuration for URL Presets can be found in Editor -> App settings -> URL Presets.

URL Automation

This is useful for cases where we would like a URL to change from Ontime without it being necessary to change the view consumers.

Consider the case of fixed devices, unattended screens or hardware integrations, where access to change the browser URL may be impractical.

Simplifying complex or lengthy URLs

With the view customisations through URL parameters, the URL can become complex.

Leveraging URL Presets, you can create a simple URL that can encode a view with given styles or configuration.
