Managing the System 


Navigating to the System Maintenance page under the System tab will display an alphabetical list of the locations that have been configured for the system.  The default view will list up to 6 locations.  Once there are more than 6 location types, page numbers will appear, allowing the user to scroll through the machine list.  A search box is provided to allow users to easily search for a specific location and clicking Reset will clear any search data.  Clicking anywhere on a location will display the list of satellites and card readers for that location.  

When the filter box is checked, the 'Show Only Offline Devices Across ALL Locations' option will filter satellite and card reader status displays and show only devices that are offline.
