The web service that resides at https://kaptivo.live or on your self-hosted Kaptivo can access a few interesting and useful parameters to help you craft a better user experience.
For example, you may want to have a bookmark on your desktop that automatically launches a Kaptivo session in your local meeting room…
For a cloud connected Kaptivo you can start with the BASE URL of
For a local hosted on-prem Kaptivo start with a BASE URL of
using the device IP address, so if the IP is 192.168.101.1 then your
BASE URL is
(notice those dashes between network numbers)
Next you can add individual parameters separated by ampersand;
- your specific six letter Kaptivo ID using id=, for example,
- your name using name= for example,
name=Joe%20Kaptivo - notice the standard URL encoding
- a virtual click on the 'view board' button using autoview= for example,
thats all there is for now, but its enough to build a bookmark like this;
If you'd like to take this to the next level, you are welcome to try one of our Kaptivolabs experiments.
We have a test site,
https://kaptivolabs.com/capture, where you can set the parameter
autoview=2 which along with the id= and name= parameters will automatically download a snapshot of the current board as a PNG file.
So you could create a one-button-to-capture bookmark,
that would directly download the whiteboard image when clicked.
What will you do with this?
Perhaps you'll integrate it into your meeting room's video codec touch panel,
or maybe you'll use IFTTT to integrate with Alexa to start a Kaptivo Session
or setup a Dash IoT button to download and parse the image and re-post it somewhere like BOX… or even send it to Zapier.
Use the chat function on kaptivo.com to let us know how you use this, we're anxious to see what fun and interesting things you do.
