3. Main menu
After logging in, the application opens the user’s dashboard view (see Dashboard view).
The search tool allows the users to browse devices by typing a part of their name or MAC address. It filters the list of devices by showing only the devices that contain the typed letters or numbers.
With a click on a device from the list, the device’s AHU view opens. This window is described in the AHU view section.
3.2. Application menu
Through the application menu the users have access to most of the application tools such as users management, device management and configuration, generating reports and alarms. The look of the application menu and the offered tools depend on the permissions that the user has.
The following explanation is for administrator user as it covers all of the application tools.
The users window shows a list of registered users. The users with grey and italic letters are registered but inactive and cannot use the application. The administrator can update the existing users or add new.
Update user: With a click on a line with user information, an update user window pops up, and here the user information can be changed or removed. The administrator can activate/deactivate a user, or reset password of a user, so the user will receive an email to change the password (the same email as described in Forgotten password).
The changes can be saved with a click on the OK button, after which a message for confirmation shows up.
The user is removed with a click on the remove button. A pop-up window appears to confirm the action.
With a click on the icon in the top left corner of the window the administrator can open the logs of user actions.
The log lists all the actions made in the application that are connected with the selected user. They are listed in chronological order and have action code, timestamp and description of the action.
With a click on the filter icon next to the close icon in the top right corner, an offer to filter the list shows up. This way only the logs from the selected period are listed.
New user: With a click on the New user button, the administrator can add new user and assign one or several roles to the user.
The user receives an email with a link to reset the password before he can use the application.
Through the permissions window the administrator manages with the user’s permissions. On the left side of the window the user roles are listed and on the right side under each tab the permissions are listed in a checkbox list.
For a selected user role and specified tab the administrator can review and change the permitted actions for any user role. The changes can be saved with a click on the update button. After updating, the same confirmation message as shown above, appears.
A new user role can be added by choosing name for the new role.
Basically, the user’s application menu configuration depends on the permissions defined here.
3.2.3. Invite users
If the user has permission to invite users he can do so through the invite users window. This way the invited user has access to the data for the selected device(s). The user has to enter the e-mail address of the user he invites.
If the user does not own any device, a pop-up window with corresponding message appears.
Distributor (Help) can be invited for selected devices.
3.2.4. Deactivate user access
To remove the user’s access to a specific device, the user can do so through the deactivate user access window.
The user selects the specific device and with a click on show the users for selected device on the right side of the window, the list of device’s users opens. This way the user can select the user(s) if he wants to remove their access.
3.2.5. Register new device
For registering new device, the user has to enter the device’s activation code.
The rest of the application menu (Group configuration for heating station, Reports, System settings, System logs, Analytic alarms) is going to be explained in Application menu continuation section.
