solo uses GPS to ensure the safety of your workers, but things such as a worker's location within a building can cause GPS signal to be impaired. Beacon technology, however, allows you to maintain the safety of your workers even when GPS coverage is inadequate. Beacons can also provide a method to communicate important location specific information to any worker within their proximity. Adding a beacon in solo is the process of registering its specific location within your network and stipulating any messaging that may be required. And this can be done in two ways via the manual method or via the import or bulk method. First, we'll look at the manual method, which is ideal when adding a small number of beacons from solo platforms Landing page. You must access the beacons register in the setup area. The beacons register is split into two tabs, or beacons and beacon groups. Help with working with beacon groups is available in the support portal. For this video will focus on the all Beacons tab, which shows all current beacons and key information about each the Beacon name. It's universally unique. ID its major and minor location details. It's physical address and any beacon groups it belongs to. To begin click add beacon, proceed to fill out all the mandatory information in the Beacon Details section. These details are the minimum mandatory information required to successfully set up a new beacon in solo. The Beacon name is the primary descriptor for the beacon itself and should be used to fully detail its specific location in the universally unique ID or you you I. D. Field. Enter the 32 digit hex to decimal code that comes supplied with the device. This code distinguishes the beacon from any other beacon. The major minor numerical fields are also supplied with the device and should be completed accordingly. The optional information section allows you to stipulate the beacons exact GPS location, add the beacon to a group or groups, and also add messaging for solo app users. For the beacon location, enter the address where the beacon is located. This will place a pin at that location on the adjacent map. You can then fine tune this placement further by dragging and dropping the pin. Note. If the beacon will not be located in a fixed position, for example, placed in a vehicle or carried on a user's person. This step is not required. Next stipulate if this beacon is to be part of a beacon group all groups by selecting appropriately from the drop down list. Last but not least, for the optional information section or the messaging fields. These are to be used to convey information to any solo app user who enters its vicinity. It's recommended that the subject should be kept under 25 characters in order for it to be displayed fully on the applicable devices. Then enter the message to be sent to the users. Once all the required information has been entered, click Save and the beacons register will re display with the new beacon added. Proceed to repeat these steps for as many new beacons as required. Now let's look at the second method of adding beacons to solo the import method. The import method allows you to add the details of multiple beacons by filling in and uploading a single spreadsheet. To begin from the beacons register, click the import beacons button. The import beacon screen explains that once an import file or spreadsheet has been uploaded, the import wizard will then automatically try to match the data contained within the spreadsheet to the right system fields. It also breaks down the information types required and allowed within the import file and all the file types that can be used to import the beacons to make getting started easier. There is a handy preformatted Excel template that can be downloaded. Complete the import template, inputting the details for the beacons you'd like to add, then returned to solo and click upload file. Select the import file from your computer, then click. Continue. Uh huh. The import wizard will display the results of its attempted data match showing the matched solo platform field names in relation to the information contained in the uploaded spreadsheet. To make any corrections, simply modify the required dropdowns and click continue to review the imported data. Mhm. If everything looks OK, click import. To complete the process, you'll then be returned to the beacons register, but the newly added beacons will be visible. Help with other solo platform procedures can be found in the knowledge base
