I need to login to the webpage I'm displaying on all displays

I'm trying to display a dashboard webpage that requires a login to view. I can login on my computer locally, and the preview seems to work, but I need to be able to login for multiple displays across different locations. Is there a way to interact with each system remotely to login, or some html/java/etc. code to enter to auto login?

In case you need it, this is the page I need to display: https://dashboard.livechatinc.com/

Thanks!

Hi Caleb
You can add the website link in the Web Page Widget. Check that 'Allow Interaction' is enabled in the Web Page Widget and deselect 'Hide Mouse Pointer' in the Presentation Settings.

When you view the website on a live Display, connect a keyboard and mouse to log in to the website. The login should then be retained and you can test by rebooting the media device.

Let me know if you are able to log in!

Will I have to do this individually for all displays, or will 1 login activate it  for all media devices?

Thanks!

Hi Caleb,
Yes it will have to be for all Displays running this website.

Thanks, looks like that worked!

I was hoping for a more elegant solution to handle multiple locations/displays, but at least I know how to do it manually.

Agreed here! It is great that a solution exists - but it is a little cumbersome. If anyone out there has a solution like storing the login cookie and calling it thru javascript, please let us know! Thanks for the thread, Caleb.
