Here, you can add new tones and specify the following:
Tone Link/URL (Direct uploading available based on your version)
Tone Button Color (Hex)
Tone Button Icon
Tone buttons support icons from several different web libraries. Clicking the search icon will open the Font Awesome icon library search. Here, you can search for an icon - click on it - and paste the icon name into the CAD. You can also use material theme icons.
Don't forget to press save!
The tone board can be set to play tones for specific identifiers, groups, agencies, departments, subdivisions, and dispatch calls.
You can click on any one of these items and select "Tone Board" to add this group to the play target on the tone board.
The tone board can be opened by users in dispatch or self-dispatch mode.
From the start menu, this panel is located under
The window can also be minimized, and pinned to the taskbar on your screen for quick access.
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
ENTER to 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.
