Browser Instructions/Universal Mode
To get started, go to lifedesk.app in your browser.
You’ll be asked if you want to connect to a Bluetooth-enabled workstation or if you would like to use the app in Universal Mode.
- The Universal mode allows users of any sit-stand workstation to create a transition plan and set transition reminders to improve desk usage from their desktop or mobile device and to maximize the proven health benefits of sit-stand workstations.
- The Bluetooth or Connected mode when used in conjunction with a blue-tooth enabled sit-stand desk from 40 different manufacturers, allows users to directly control and monitor their desk from their desktop or mobile device, create a transition plan, establish goals, and program memory settings for proper heights.
Click the “Universal” button.
After selecting Universal Mode, you will see the app’s home screen.
If your browser is set to display wider than 890 pixels, you will see the app displayed in three columns. If it is set between 692 and 890 pixels, the app will display in two columns. And if your screen is smaller than 692 pixels, the app will display in one column. The responsive programing of the app allows you to customize how you want to view your screen and also allows you to keep your app open while taking up less valuable screen space.
