Friendly names make dashboards, reports and tables much easier to understand than a node's 16-digit ID (e.g., A800-0000-0000-1234). You may assign friendly names to power monitoring nodes, panels, environmental monitoring nodes, gateways, hubs and data diodes.
Creating Friendly Names
To create a friendly name:
1. Go to Standard Views > Node Inventory
2. Click in the Node Name cell you want to assign a friendly name.
3. Type in the name and press Enter or Return on your keyboard to save.
Once defined, the friendly name will be displayed throughout EMX.
Note that you can not use this process to assign friendly names to virtual circuits in a panel. See EMX Panel Editor for information about editing circuit level details.
