Welcome to the new BEACON user interface (UI). As you can see, the new navigation bar on the left side of the screen performs the same function as the previous navigation tabs. Click a page name to access that page.
Click the arrows (^) next to System Sync, Engagement, Users and Utility Settings to expand or collapse those menus. When expanded, related pages are displayed. When collapsed, hover your cursor over an icon to display related pages.
Some pages have moved. Others have been added. And still others have been combined. For example:
• Data Diagnostics and Data Exchange Search can be directly accessed via the System Sync section.
• What’s New is available in the navigation bar as well as on the At a Glance page.
• Find data related to all your hardware assets on the new Assets page.
If portions of the navigation bar are hidden, use the scroll bar to access them.
The navigation bar is open by default. To collapse it, click the <–| icon on the bottom left portion of the navigation bar. Click the icon again to toggle the bar open. When closed, only the navigation icons are displayed, optimizing the display area of the interface.
The search icon in the upper right corner of the screen functions as before, letting you enter serial numbers, location IDs, meter IDs, customer names and other keywords to quickly locate items of interest. As before, search results are displayed on the Monitor page, regardless of the page the search was performed on.
Click ? in the upper right to get context-sensitive BEACON Help.
