Select Display View Settings

As an administrator using WebEOC, you have complete freedom when it comes to how users see the boards you create. This customization lies in the display view settings and input view settings you choose when configuring a board. Below, you'll find the steps to selecting display view settings for a board. 

To select display view settings
  1. In the Admin window, go to Process: Boards. The Boards page opens.

  2. Click the name of the appropriate board.

  3. On the Board: Edit Board page, go to the Edit section and click Board Editor.

  4. On the Board Editor: [Board Name] page, click the name of the view for which you want to adjust settings.

  5. In the Settings section, if it is not already selected, click the Options tab.

  6. When information posted to the view is to be displayed from all active incidents, select the Global check box.

    Tip: Assume the Significant Events board is configured as Global. Anytime an EOC is managing two separate incidents (for example, Hostage Situation and HazMat Spill) and data is posted to the Significant Events board, users logged into either incident see all data related to both incidents. This setting is specific to the selected view.

  7. If you want the user to only see entries they add to that status board, not entries added by other users, select the Lock User View option.

  8. If you want the user to only see entries added by the position they are currently filling, select the Lock Position View option. 

  9. To define whether a view can be assigned to a group, select the Assignable check box.

    Note: By default, this check box is selected, which means the view can be assigned in the Groups Manager. This is particularly useful when sharing boards (via import/export or WebEOC Fusion). To disable the view so it cannot be assigned, clear the check box.

  1. For Color, click in the field and, from the color picker window that pops up, select a color for the default icon that will represent entries for this board. Alternatively, enter a color code in this field.

    Tip: The default color for a particular board entry can be defined by a list or by the board display view. By default, the color used for a board entry on a map is the color defined by the applicable list. The color for a board entry as defined in the board display view will only be used if the color for a list value has not been set.

  2. To select an icon from a database, for Icon, click Select Icon. The Select Icon window opens. Click the icon that you want to represent the list item and the icon will appear on maps that the board is associated with.

    Tip: The default icon for a particular board entry can be defined by a list or by the board display view. By default, the icon used for a board entry on a map is the icon defined by the applicable list. The icon for a board entry as defined in the board display view will only be used if the icon for a list value has not been set.

    Note: This option is only available to organizations with Maps Add-on.

  4. Click Save.
