The Devices feature allows you to add many different pin types to your view-able maps. Once you have Devices added to your account, you can view them by Device types or view all Devices at the same time. Simply open any Multi Map, Coverage or Fiber Coverage and in the lower left of corner, you will see the Devices Orb. Clicking this will open the selection menu for the group you wish to open.
If you would like to view your devices individually, you can select the Devices List in the left hand toolbar located between the Radio-Systems button and Orders List button. The Devices List Allows you to see a list of Devices currently in your account, and also sort and filter by Name, Type, Group or IP Address.
These Devices have several different pin types available.

NotesThe Notes field is meant to contain data for your tracking and record keeping purposes. It can hold a very large amount of data as well as contain return characters and indents. A simple way to input a clean set of notes is to format it how you wish it to be viewed in the device window using a program such as Word. You would then copy and paste the data into this text area.
