With some of our new capabilities (Categories and Attributes) coming soon, we have been making some major changes to the interface to ensure our customers (AND WE!) don’t spend too much time editing things “one at a time.”
One major internal area we needed improvement for was a set of vehicle-specific device options which our fulfillment and support staff use all the time.
They complained that whenever we need to update a large number of devices all at once (thankfully a problem for us — we’ve been selling a lot of large deployments lately), they need to edit the vehicles one at a time.
No more! We have a new interface control which allows for quick and easy “all at once” editing — we launch it here (from our new “one click” list):
This allows us to rapidly edit ALL administrative options for vehicles:
(bear in mind the prior screen is for our internal account, which is why many “guinea pig” devices haven’t reported for a while — we don’t always clean these up right away…)
Note that the “tab vertically” option is set automatically and allows us to rapidly enter values or use the space bar to toggle options then tab to the next vehicle vertically.
And whenever you make a change, the green “checkbox” lights up to indicate that it’s been saved. Then it fades to a light green checkbox, so you can see which values were changed overall.
That allows you to go back and ensure you changed the correct vehicles (and lets me go back and reverse my “for the blog” changes easily).
We will add this capability where appropriate. Previously, if we wanted to edit all these vehicles, we would have to click on the pencil icon and then edit each one individually.
Thanks to everyone buying lots of devices to force us to streamline this for ourselves and our customers!
