Access the Congressify settings

To open Congressify, right click on the icon in the task bar and select Settings. You can also type http://localhost/#/settings or replace localhost by the IP address of the computer where Congressify is installed.

Configuration

Congressify requires minimal configuration. To use the application you need a license for a specific amount of users, which you have to activate on the computer where you install Congressify. Besides the license, you can also change the application port and the Default language of the application.

Figure 1-6 The Configuration page of the Congressify settings

Participants can change the language of the application as described in "Change the application language" on page 1.

Manage licenses

Before you can start to use Congressify you need to validate your license. For this you need the MAC address, which is available on the Configuration page. The validation process is described in detail in "Manage Congressify licenses" on page 1.

Note that you need to be connected to the internet to be able to activate your Congressify license.

Check number of licensed users

Go to Configuration, under Validation of license you can see Number of licensed users. This is the amount of users that can login to Congressify simultaneously.

To change the amount of licensed users follow the procedure described here: "License process to Change the amount of licensed users" on page 1

Change application port

In cases where the application port is blocked, there is an option to change the port used by Congressify. To change the application port go to Configuration and change the number under Application Port. Click Save to confirm the changes.

When the default pot is not available, Congressify will use the next available port.
