How do I change my home board in CoughDrop?

Your home board is the default board you'll see when you launch CoughDrop. The home board and all connected boards can be saved for offline use.

CoughDrop Home Board Video Tutorial

Set as Home Board


When you find a board you like, make sure you are not in Speak Mode and then hit the "More" button and select "Set as Home Board".

Once assigned as the home board you will see a link for this board noted on your CoughDrop dashboard page in the left-hand column.  

If you plan to customize the chosen board set you will probably want to make your own copy of the desired board.  You can do that using the instructions in this support article.

Once you have your own copy of the publicly shared board set you can open your version of the board in speak mode to customize and adjust the options within the board.  

Assign a New Home Board for Someone I Supervise

You can use the same process to assign a new home board for the account of a person you supervise.  Find the board you would like to set as the home board for that account and hit the "i" icon in the top right corner of the board preview image to open the "board actions" page.  

On the board actions page, open the drop-down menu under "more" and select "set as home board."  If you are a supervisor, the system will give you the option to select an account to which you would like to assign this board as the home board.  You will also have the option to make a copy of the board for this account or use the existing, publicly shared board.  In most cases, it is best to make a copy for the account so that board can be customized and adjusted to fit the needs of that communicator.



If you are an organization manager, you can also adjust the home board for a communicator in your organization.  Open the desired board to the board actions page and then use the user icons or the pop-up menu of other users to select the account to which you would like to assign this board as the home board. 


Adjust Default Symbol Set When Creating Home Board

When assigning a board as a user's new home board, you will also see the option to adjust the board's symbol set while creating the new home board set.  If you have purchased access to premium symbols, you can choose a premium symbol set to be assigned as the default images on the home board.  Otherwise, you can select any available image library for these symbols.
