The Start Page
Widgets are shown on the start page of the Management Console. These are individually configurable and offer an initial view of the many activities of the system.
At the start page, one can display and remove widgets using the cogwheel button.
Using the button on the top right, one can quickly switch between the start page and the Tab List.
Diverse tabs can be opened in the tab list. This includes the Object Tree, the Messages , or the configuration of Instances or Automations. The Plus Icon at the right of the tab list can open new tabs. If multiple tabs of objects with the same name are open, the path to those objects is displayed as well, so the corresponding object can be properly identified.
The WebFront can be opened directly via the button on the top right.
A variety of information can be retrieved using the information button.
These include kernel and feature information, as well as a button to the Special Switches.
Discovery instances can be configured via the Device Search button.
These inform about newly connected devices and simplify the configuration of new devices.
New modules can be installed via the Module Store. These modules expand the functionality and enable the usage of new functions or additional devices.
