Tip

  • You can start a fuzzy search by typing a keyword in the search box under the filter name of Asset NamePlantLocationModel, and Controller Model. The assets of which names contain the keyword are automatically listed.

  • You can change the display order of the filters. Click the image30.png icon and drag the filters to adjust their locations, and then click Save.

  • You can search for assets of which PlantLocationModel, and Controller Model property is null by selecting (Blanks) from the drop-down list. The (Blanks) option is only available when at least one asset is assigned with a null value of the selected property.
