- 2.Right click on the file name or download button

The tone board can be opened by users in dispatch or self-dispatch mode.
From the start menu, this panel is located under
The tone board is designed to be as efficient as possible.
The top of the tone board includes a search box, allowing you to quickly filter tone options as you type. If you filter down the options to a single tone, the search label will turn green - allowing you to press
ENTERto play the tone.
The tone board is also designed to auto-focus this search box whenever it is opened, or the header is clicked.

Global hotkeys allow you to open the tone board in a more advanced way. Opening the tone board with your keyboard or Streamdeck shortcut will first check for any existing tone board window opened or minimized. If one is found, that existing window will be opened and focused to the search bar. Otherwise, a new tone board window will be opened with the search box focused.
Instead of using the search box filtering, users can also manually click the tone board button to play the audio.
Tones can be repeated at a specific interval.
When sending a new tone, toggle
repeaton and customize the
countvalues. When the tone is sent, the repeat timer and counter will visualize any actively repeating tones.
