The Multisite Dashboard

The multi-site dashboard is designed with simplicity in mind. It contains a map and a list of all the Agents associated to the account. On this page you can quickly sort, filter and visualise multiple sites and go to the Agent you wish to interact with.

The location of an Agent on the map is based on the address provided in the Customer Management tile. If that address is not provided, the system uses the Agent coordinates automatically detected via ip-geolocation, which might not be always accurate.

The My Agents, shows key informations about the each network monitored and  allow you to filter, sort and search for agents.
