Network Overview, Timeline, and Preview
In the Network Overview, items are organized in the same manner as a folder tree. The red building icon represents the Location of the digital sign. The location will be, at a minimum, the building where a sign is located.
You can also have more specific locations within the building, such as first floor, basement, etc.
The blue rectangles represent digital signs in the locations. Each location may have multiple signs. The orientation of the rectangle shows the orientation of the sign: vertical or horizontal.
The green icons represent Templates. Each digital sign must have at least one template.
