If there is no recently viewed equipment listed (or if the user is logging in for the first time), then the ‘Recently viewed’ list displays nothing. If the recently viewed equipment list is empty, then users can click on the tags to search for equipment created by other users (other employee users or shared users) of the account under the same campus. A maximum of 20 pieces of equipment can be viewed at one time. The last accessed template (most recently viewed) will be displayed at the top of the list.


The equipment is searchable using equipment name, keyword and other attributes of the equipment. The right-panel of the screen displays the tags associated with all the equipment on the displayed campuses. Users can enter tags while uploading equipment. Hence, each tag is associated with one or more pieces of equipment. Users can select one or more tags and search for equipment associated with the selected tags. Users should be able to do the following on this screen.
