Map View:

The interactive Map View will display all of the thermostats linked to your account by color-coded markers on the map, as specified by your search parameters.

An informational pop-up will also appear, displaying the customer name, address, phone number, and thermostat serial number of the selected thermostat.

  • Color Schemes: a color-coding scheme will identify thermostats with alerts or reminders by severity (red = severe, yellow = moderate, green = low). A default blue marker will represent thermostats that have no active alerts or reminders
  • Multiple Selection Tool: if your thermostat list is set to filter by reminders, you have the ability to select an unlimited number of thermostats in any given area. This will allow you to create bulk actions, such as setting service reminders for several thermostats in a given location at once. To enable      this feature, simply click the “Select On” button in the top left hand  corner of the map, and your cursor will transform into <> symbol. Then, create a selection box with your cursor to select numerous thermostats in the area you want. By doing this, all of the selected thermostats in the Thermostat List will be highlighted, enabling you to perform bulk reminder actions. By clicking the “Select Off” button, your cursor will transform back into the hand symbol and you can scroll through the map in various directions by clicking and dragging your mouse.
