Overview

This tab allows a user to manage events within the account. Events are created by an administrator and can be used for personnel tracking and incident command.

Calendar View

The default view displays a monthly calendar.

Changing The Calendar View

The default calendar view displays a monthly calendar, but can be changed to a weekly or daily view using the corresponding buttons near the top right of the calendar. Near the top left of the calendar are arrow buttons that can be used to switch between months, weeks, and days, depending on what has been selected for that setting. The "today" button will return the user to the current date if the calendar is on another date.

Filtering Events

The "Filter Events By" option allow the user to display only the events that a specific device is attached to. The user should type the name of the device desired to use as a filter into the box titled "Devices", and then click the "Update" button.
