This can help you time your ads better, avoiding ads running at important moments in your stream, while also avoiding pre-rolls from activating on your stream.

Moobot can also alert you about upcoming ads, when ads start and end, remind you to run ads, and warn you when pre-rolls are about to be activated on the stream. You can access the ad-notifications menu directly from the widget.

The song-player widget#

The song-player widget lets you play and control what is playing through the song request feature.

You can also use the player as a standalone music player without the request part of the feature. That way you can take advantage of all the other functionalities of the feature.

To use the song-player as a standalone player, only add songs to your secondary playlist, which will make the player only play your own personal songs.

The player also fully syncs between multiple devices and users, which means you can use it from multiple sources at the same time.

You can also set up Moobot Assistant to control your song-player with keyboard hot-keys. That way you don't have to switch out of your game to e.g. skip a song or change the volume.

Adjusting how your dashboard is set up#

You can move around your widgets on your dashboard as long as you have deactivated the «Lock UI» option in the «Interface» main menu.

Just drag-and-drop the widget to where you want to place it. (Some widgets require you to drag the widget from the «Drag» button in their menu.)

Your dashboard divides itself into 3 rows, with their own columns where you can place your widgets.

The middle row has several columns, with each their own width. You can adjust these columns by following these steps:

  1. Open up the «Interface» menu from the main menu, then open the «UI columns» menu from there.The interface menu in the main menu
  2. While in the «UI columns» menu you can adjust the width of a column by dragging its slider to your desired size.The UI columns menu
  3. You can add or remove columns by clicking the «Add» or «Remove» buttons at the bottom of the menu.
  4. Save your changes by clicking the «Save» button at the bottom of the menu.

You can also compact your dashboard by activating the «Reduce the padding surrounding the columns» checkbox in the «UI columns» menu.

Switching between dashboard set-ups#

A «UI profile» contains the set-up of your dashboard.

By switching between UI profiles you can easily switch between different dashboard set-ups, allowing you to have different setups for different tasks.

E.g. you can have a UI profile for heavy moderation tasks, and one for when you're streaming. Or a reduced dashboard for when you're on mobile, and a large dashboard while full-screened on your desktop.

Follow these steps to create a UI profile:

  1. Open up the «Interface» menu from the main menu, then open the «UI profiles» menu from there.The interface menu in the main menu
  2. Type the name of your profile in the «Profile name» input at the bottom of the menu.The UI profiles menu
  3. Click the «Add» button once you've chosen and typed in a name for your profile.
  4. Find your new profile in the «Current profiles» table and activate its «Active» toggle button to make it your active profile.
  5. Click the «Save» button at the bottom of the menu to save your changes.

Any adjustments made to the dashboard's interface will only affect your active profile.

Each dashboard you're an editor of has its own set active profile, with the initial active profile being your default (first) profile, named «Default».

Automatically switching between dashboard setups#

Moobot can automatically switch between profiles for you when you resize your dashboard's window.

This allows you to e.g. have a more compact view for when you resize your dashboard to a smaller window, taking up less screen-space, and then have your dashboard automatically restored back to full functionality again when you maximize the dashboard's window.

By automatically switching between profiles, you can optimize the view of your dashboard to only show what you need when you need it.

Follow these steps to set up automatic profile switching:

  1. Open up the «Interface» menu from the main menu, then open the «UI auto-switching» menu from there.The interface menu in the main menu
  2. Select the profiles to switch to for the various screen sizes in the «Auto-switches» table.The UI auto-switching menu
  3. Click the «Save» button at the bottom of the menu to save your changes.

Putting your dashboard directly into your OBS#

You can put your dashboard directly into your OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) by adding it as a custom browser dock.

This lets you dock your dashboard inside the OBS window and have it start up alongside OBS when you start your stream.

Docking your dashboard into OBS is very simple, just follow these steps:

  1. Open OBS, and from the «View» menu choose «Docks», and then «Custom Browser Docks...».Moobot dashboard docked inside OBS, step 1
  2. Add a new dock named e.g. 'Moobot' in the «Custom Browser Docks» window and set its URL to «https://moo.bot/username» with «username» being the dashboard's channel name (your Twitch username.)Moobot dashboard docked inside OBS, step 2
  3. Hit the «Apply» button to add the dock.
  4. Once the dashboard's window has popped up, hold down your mouse at the top bar of the window (your dashboard), and then move it inside your OBS window to dock it.
  5. Log in to your Moobot dashboard as normal.Moobot dashboard docked inside OBS, step 3

When you've successfully docked the dashboard, you can make your life easier by adjusting it to fit your OBS view and workflow:

  1. Create and use a separate UI profile for just your OBS. That way you can have a different dashboard set-up in OBS vs. in your browser.
  2. Hide the widgets you won't need inside OBS.
  3. Set up the columns of your dashboard to fit the smaller dashboard window.
  4. Reorganize the widgets by drag-and-dropping them to where they best fit your OBS window.
