DicksonOne v1.3.1

08/29/2018

The release focused heavily on the process of creating alarm templates and alarms. This is an interface change only and the underlying logic for those hasn’t changed as alarms still process in the way that they used to. The new processes should be clearer ultimately leading to a more successful setup and promoting the use of time-saving features like the contact book and notification policies.

Description Impact Recommendation

Alarm Templates

  • Template creation is now more streamlined, providing directions to every step along with a progress bar that marks the completion progress of the template.
  • Templates page to now display how many channels each template is applied to. Selecting an alarm template will now allow a user to edit or see an overview of the template.
  • Choosing to edit an Alarm Template’s Name, Conditions, Notification, or Channels will now redirect the user to an edit page that provides information and directions on how to complete the step.
  • A contact may now be created while in the process of creating a new notification policy.

While functionality is the same, we’ve cleaned up the terminology used throughout the site for increased clarity and consistency.

Alarms

  • The UI for the alarms on a device’s alarm page have been updated to more clearly indicate which alarms are applied, how they behave, and when they are triggered.
  • The UI for creating an alarm has been updated to match that of alarm templates, but is functionally the same.
  • A contact may now be created while in the process of creating a new notification policy.
  • Added the ability to call or text numbers in Poland.

As with the alarm templates, while functionality is the same, we’ve cleaned up the terminology used throughout the site for increased clarity and consistency.

Efficiency of Use

  • Users can now add create a Location from a Device’s Settings page. This can be done without leaving the Device’s page.
  • Actions “kabob” or menu on a device row. When looking at a list of device, you will see a kabob on the right which will display a menu with shortcuts to: device overview, device settings, device alarms, or run an export.
