Launcher Labels

When installing a launcher, there’s an optional step in the installation process where you can define a label. Labels act as description tags that allow you to filter the launchers displayed in the Login PI Dashboard.

Note: There is no limit to the amount of labels you can define.

Configuring Labels

After you have finished installing the launcher, you can only configure labels in the Launcher.json file. This file is located in the following place: %programdata%\Login VSI\Login PI\Configuration

Depending what Windows OS you are using, you can access this location by either pasting %programdata% into the Windows Search option or directly into the File Explorer.
