Configuring Labels


WIN-911 introduces the concept of Labels, which is a way of categorizing and developing logic for your configured alarms.  The Label settings are user-defined and not required to configure.  They are used to simplify Tactic configuration and add a level of convenience when adding new alarms.   

In the following document, we will discuss the following subjects:

  • Creating a Label

  • Implementation


With this information, you will a better understanding of how to efficiently utilize this new feature of WIN-911.

In the Label creation window you can define label Name, Description (optional), Foreground (Text) color and Background Color.


The Used By section will show any alarms that are using the created Label.

You now have a new label to assign to your alarms.


 




Configuration

In this window, you can hold shift and click to make multiple selections, or click the top left checkbox to select all Labels.

Labels are a way of simplifying adding and deleting an individual or groups of alarms to your current configuration.  For systems with larger data sets, the only requirement for importing or adding alarms to WIN-911 is to make sure they are configured with the correct Label.
