Other Main Screen Features
This feature displays the logged in Windows user’s details (name and image) on the home screen.
The design and position of this feature depends on the type of layout you are using.

Floating Home Button
The CO-LAB Launcher contains a floating Home button which always floats on top to your applications. Pushing this button will always return you to the Launcher/home screen.
This floating home button can be dragged to any location on the screen to avoid that it conflicts with other content on the display.
Floating button settings
The setttings menu allows you to configure this floating button. The main characteristic of this button is that you can also lock it on the central bottom of the screen. This lock can be applied through the settting menu.
The launcher displays the current time and date in AM/PM or 24h format as set in your windows computer system settings (not the settings).
Before starting your meeting, set your timing! Because time is money.
Displays the cost of the current meeting. The User can enter the cost per minute, as well as, setting the currency (USD, EUR and others) and choosing the number of participants in the meeting. The latter can only be set when there is an active meeting. We call it an active meeting when an user has scheduled a meeting in his Office 365 calender, then you can set the meeting cost during the time span that the meeting is scheduled.
The city, for which the weather will be displayed, should be entered by the user via the settings.
Country code (e.g. "fr", "de", "us") is optional but it helps to avoid the issue with cities which have the same name in different countries.
NOTE: Internet connection is required for the weather function to work.
The language of the application is determined based on the System language. Date for the clock is also taken from the System.
For now, only English and Dutch are supported.

Once preferences have been set and the appearance of the launcher finalised, export the settings by pressing the ‘Export Settings’ button in the settings.
Exporting these settings, allows you to import your customised settings.
The export file is in the "Documents" folder on your local device.
