Article summary

The FlexUI user interface is an intuitive platform designed exclusively for running voice announcements by users. This application allows the user to view announcement content, configure predefined content options and variables for a specific use case, and play the announcements to selected zones in selected languages. 


We have prepared a demo configuration to give you a better idea of what options and features our paging tool offers. You can easily configure it with your categories and announcements by following the instructions: 

For your demo instance, access the FlexUI by typing into your browser the URL: https://your instance access URL/flex/demo, for example: https://air-tyx5.simpleway.cloud/flex/demo

Main FlexUI screen:

After pressing the Play button a playback sub-window will open: 
  • it will display the announcement content in all selected languages in the preset order. The currently playing language will be highlighted and its duration displayed.
  • during the playback of an announcement you can stop playback immediately or after the current language is played using the relative Stop buttons. 
  • you may also minimize the playback sub-window, allowing you to navigate the FlexUI, for example, to prepare the next announcement for playback.
  • active zones transmitting announcements are highlighted with a red button. Note: "Local demo" zones that are preconfigured to play to your client speakers for preview purposes are not highlighted with a red button when transmitting announcements. 
G) You may maximize the playback sub-window, allowing you to use the Stop buttons again. 
H) Triggering announcements with options and/or variables

  1. Tap the announcement with three dots icon.
