Operator Customizations

The Operator Customization area is split up into 4 tabs (assuming you have access to certain modules).

OPERATOR THEME: Choose a theme that best matches your desired color schemes. This will be the default for all of your Clients as well.

Main

SPLASH HEADER IMAGE: Upload a default header image that will be displayed on most of the Classic Splash page templates. We recommend 640x58px.

MARKETING4WIFI API Token: This is the API key to use when you want to tie into the Marketing4WiFi platform for 3rd party integrations.

API Secret: Click the eye to reveal the Marketing4WiFi API secret.

CONSTANT CONTACT KEY: Enter your Constant Contact Key from the developer site. If empty, default will be to use ours/private label. (This is necessary if you’re using your own dashboard hostname.)

CONSTANT CONTACT SECRET: Enter your Constant Contact secret from the developer site. (if empty, default will be to use ours/private label). (This is necessary if you’re using your own splash page hostname.)

ENABLED MAILER APPS : By default, if you’ve allowed the permissions for your clients to use the Mail Provider synchronization option, then they will see ALL of the available providers such as Mailchimp, Contsant Contact etc. You can choose to ONLY allow certain mail providers if you like by selecting the available providers in this field. Leave it blank if you want all of the providers to be active and usable by your clients.

HTTPS ENABLED: Only enable this if our support department has FULLY processed your SSL order and you’ve made ALL required changes in your DNS entries.

DASHBOARD HOSTNAME: Default is: http://dashboard.smartwifiplatform.com. This value would equal the CNAME you created in your DNS record that points to http://dashboard.smartwifiplatform.com.

SPLASH PAGE HOSTNAME: Default is: http(s)://splash.smartwifiplatform.com IMPORTANT NOTE: If you change this URL then you WILL need to change ALL OF YOUR EQUIPMENT THAT IS CURRENTLY DEPLOYED to match this URL. This value would equal the CNAME you created in your DNS record that points to https://splash.smartwifiplatform.com
Contact support for additional questions.

BILLING AND SUPPORT URL: These fields are used to customize the Billing and Client Support menu items that your Clients will link to. If you want to use our white-label Client Support KB, point the “Support URL” to point to our white-label KB (https://support.smartwifiplatform.com).

By filling out the Billing URL and Support URL settings, whatever external web page that you point to can be displayed to YOUR CLIENTS from within the dashboard using an iFrame. This is a nice way to make the dashboard a main point for your clients to manage their accounts.

Example:
We enter https://support.smartwifiplatform.com in the Support URL field. When your client clicks the ‘Client Support’ menu button, they will see the page displayed in the dashboard using an iFrame.

The same can happen for the ‘Billing’ menu item where your billing portal will show up in the dashboard through an iFrame to your client. If these fields are blank in your Operator settings then when clicked, the panel will be blank.

DEFAULT SSID: Enter a default broadcast SSID that will be populated when you add a gateway.

DEFAULT CURRENCY: Choose your local currency. This is used to display your local currency to Clients when they create a Coupon and on the Campaign Insights areas.

Enable Ads4WiFi Integration: Toggle to enable the integration between the Marketing4WiFi and Ads4WiFi platforms. Allows use of Adspaces from Ads4WiFi on hotspot splash pages.
