This release reflects a major turning point in the PRISM platform. There are many new and big features to introduce…

  • Dashboard Configurations – PRISM now includes a very popular user request – Users can now Save & Load configurations for the location dashboard.
  • View Raw Data – This option will restrict/allow users to view or not view raw data.
  • Monitor Diagnostics – Users now have the ability to fire monitor diagnostics from the location details page or from the site location card.
