Use Case

Wallpaper can be used to remind staff of what has recently been announced, what is about to change or assist with compliance campaigns and general reminders to staff.

The advantage of using SnapComms Desktop Wallpaper over Group Policy settings is that you can target different groups or users with different images without having to contact your IT department, and you can change the Wallpaper easily.

​Prerequisite

If you do not see this button when creating a new asset, you may not have a license supporting this feature. Please contact your SnapComms Sales Representative to arrange an upgrade to your license.


 

How it works

Desktop Wallpaper enables you to set the Desktop Wallpaper on any machine that has the SnapComms client installed. You can schedule different Wallpaper images to appear any time you wish, giving you more control over a great advertising potential.

The SnapComms client sets the Windows Desktop Background (wallpaper) to source it's image from %LOCALAPPDATA%\Snap Communications Client\wallpaper and sets the Picture position to Center, Tile, Stretch, or Scale (Fit) the image. Once the Target End Date is reached, the Windows Desktop Background (wallpaper) returns to the image that was set prior to SnapComms changing it.
