Enable Night Shift (a.k.a. Blue Light Filter) on DAKboard

The science is out, and it’s been proven that blue light, late at night can keep us awake longer. We here at DAKboard care about your rest and well-being, so we’re excited to show you how to add a blue light filter to your DAKboard screens at night, so you can wake up well rested and ready for the new day. Read on to learn how!

Save your changes and preview your screen to see the blue light filter in action!

Lastly, edit the shape block again and set a schedule under the “Schedule” tab above so the block is only visible at night from 7PM to 7AM (or whatever time you like) and save your changes.

Thanks!
