    Multiple Choice: What is the difference between the “stand-alone” Administrator desktop application and the version that is accessible through the Designer software?

    • A.

      The applications are identical, but the "stand-alone" application will not allow a user to edit the running design with the Designer software.

    • B.

      The "stand-alone" application does not allow the user to upload Audio files.

    • C.

      The "stand-alone" application requires a User ID code logon.

    Correct Answer
    A. The applications are identical, but the "stand-alone" application will not allow a user to edit the running design with the Designer software.
    Explanation
    The stand-alone Administrator desktop application and the version accessible through the Designer software are essentially the same in terms of functionality. However, the key difference is that the stand-alone application does not allow the user to make edits to the running design using the Designer software. This means that any changes or modifications to the design can only be made through the stand-alone application itself.

This means that tags can be used to categorize and organize commands, allowing users to easily locate specific commands based on their tags. It also implies that tags have a filtering function, which helps in managing and navigating through a large number of commands effectively.

  • 5. 

    True or False If you set an Event to occur on the 31st day of the month, it will instead be played on the last day of the month for months that have less than 31 days.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If you set an Event to occur on the 31st day of the month, it will not be played on the last day of the month for months that have less than 31 days. This is because the 31st day of the month does not exist in months that have fewer than 31 days.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Select the possible configurations for a repeating Event: Check all that apply.

    • A.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Every week on Friday at 8:00 PM never ending.
    B. Every two months on the 1st day of the month at 8:00 AM
    C. Every six weeks on Tuesday at midnight for three years
    Explanation
    The possible configurations for a repeating event include:
    - Every week on Friday at 8:00 PM never ending: This event will occur every week on Fridays at 8:00 PM indefinitely.
    - Every two months on the 1st day of the month at 8:00 AM: This event will occur every two months on the 1st day of the month at 8:00 AM.
    - Every six weeks on Tuesday at midnight for three years: This event will occur every six weeks on Tuesdays at midnight for a duration of three years.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    True or False: If you create an Event that plays an audio file and you would like that audio file to loop for one hour, simply go to the Audio Player component in your schematic and select the Loop button.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because selecting the Loop button in the Audio Player component will not make the audio file loop for one hour. The Loop button only allows the audio file to loop continuously until it is stopped manually or until the event ends. To make the audio file loop for one hour, additional programming or scripting would be required to set a specific duration for the loop.

    True or False: A Guest User profile is always present, which by default has access to all features.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. A Guest User profile is always present in a system, and by default, it has access to all features. This profile is typically used for users who do not have a registered account or are accessing the system without logging in. It allows them to explore and utilize all the features available without any restrictions.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following statements regarding Users are true? Check all that apply.

    • A.

      All Users will have access to any feature that the Guest User has access to.

    • B.

      You can select multiple Users and edit their settings simultaneously.

    • C.

      The File Management Protocol may be accessed by a User even if that User does not have permission to use Administrator.

    • D.

      Once a User’s PIN is established, it can never be changed.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. All Users will have access to any feature that the Guest User has access to.
    B. You can select multiple Users and edit their settings simultaneously.
    C. The File Management Protocol may be accessed by a User even if that User does not have permission to use Administrator.
    Explanation
    All Users will have access to any feature that the Guest User has access to: This statement is true because the Guest User is typically the lowest level of access in a system, so if all Users have access to the features that the Guest User has, it means they have at least the same level of access as the Guest User.

    You can select multiple Users and edit their settings simultaneously: This statement is true because the system allows for selecting multiple Users and making changes to their settings at the same time, which can save time and effort when managing a large number of Users.

    The File Management Protocol may be accessed by a User even if that User does not have permission to use Administrator: This statement is true because the File Management Protocol is a separate feature or functionality that may have its own set of permissions, independent of the Administrator permission. So, a User can access the File Management Protocol even if they do not have permission to use the Administrator role.

    Which of the following statements regarding uploading audio to the Core are true? Check all that apply.

    • A.

    • B.

      Audio files can be uploaded to any audio folder, including custom-made folders.

    • C.

      A progress bar at the bottom of the screen will show any currently uploading files.

    B. Audio files can be uploaded to any audio folder, including custom-made folders.
    C. A progress bar at the bottom of the screen will show any currently uploading files.
    Explanation
    Audio uploaded to a Core is automatically synced with a redundant Core, if one is available. This means that if there is a backup Core system in place, the audio files will be automatically transferred to that system for redundancy and backup purposes. Audio files can be uploaded to any audio folder, including custom-made folders. This allows users to organize their audio files in a way that makes sense for their workflow. A progress bar at the bottom of the screen will show any currently uploading files. This provides users with a visual indication of the progress of their file uploads.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
