How to manage sensor groups

Under "Settings" --> "Sensor Groups" you can manage all your sensors and create groups & sub-groups for your organisation.

With update to ELPRO Cloud V 2.0.0 you will find a new navigation entry "Sensor Groups" in your settings. All existing sensors will automatically be available.

You can see all existing sensor groups and sub-groups in a tree view:

Click on "Settings" --> "Sensor Groups" opens the sensor group overview tree view page.

Always available is the highest hierarchy: "All Sensors". Click on "All Sensors" shows a list of all available sensors in your organization next to the groups list.

The sensors assigned to one selected sensor group are displayed in a field next to the sensor group tree view when selecting one group or sub-group.
