How to Share Gauge Page Layouts with others

Solution

Share Custom Page Layouts

UltraGauge provides the ability to Create and Share Gauge Page Layouts with others.  After you take the time to create a really cool screen, you now have the ability to allow others to load this same Page on their UltraGauge App (or you can share it on your own additional mobile devices).  

And of course, you can also download other freely available Gauge Page Layouts created by others.

These layouts can be downloaded to any one of your 7 Gauge Pages.

How to see which Page Layouts are Available

Pages which have been shared can be seen here.  In addition, when you select to Download a Shared Page, it gives an option to "Click to View Page Layouts".  Either way, it will take you to a WEB page which shows the currently available Page Layouts.  Each Page shown will list a Layout ID which can be used to load that page to any one of your Gauge Pages.

How do I download a shared page?

To download a shared page layout:

  1. Select to download a shared page
    From the Gauge Page, long-press on the Gauge background.  When prompted, select "WWW Download Page Layout"
    Then click on "Download Shared Page Layout.

  2. Select Page Layout to Load
    You can now select which Page Layout you would like to download. To view available Page Layouts, select "Click to View Page Layouts".  This will bring you to a WEB page with all available Share Page Layouts.  Scroll through the images until ya find one you like, and a "Layout ID" will be provided.

  3. Download a Shared Page
    To Download a Shared Page, just get the Layout ID from Step 2 above, and type it in the "Enter Shared Layout ID" field.  
    At this point, you can also click on the "Adopt Color Scheme for all Pages" if you want to use the colors provided on the shared layout (Note: if you Adopt the color scheme, these colors will be used for all of your 7 Pages).
    Once you have done the above, just click on the Cloud download icon near the top right of the screen.

The UltraGauge App will now download this Page Layout from the WEB. That's it!  When you go back to the Gauge Page, you will see the new Page Layout.

Notes:

-The “Share Page Layout with others” checkbox may not appear if there was not enough memory available for the App to load the image.

-Shared Page Layouts may be removed at any time from the Ultra-Gauge site based on an attempt to keep the current list relevant for all customers

Can I Share between different types of Phones?

Shared Page Layouts can be shared between any Mobile device.  The UltraGauge App will adjust the images to fit the different Aspect Ratios (different screen heights/widths) of different devices.  Due to the fact that some devices are taller or wider than others, the actual layout may look a bit different than the picture shown, but UltraGauge attempts to keep the images centered as it loads the layout to each device.

Of course, once loaded, you can always alter the layout as you like, and even change which gauges are displayed.
