Master data


On the company page you manage the most important info about your company. You will find address details and you can manage users at the company level. In addition, you can also invite users at the company level here.


Users are the users who have access to the data in your project or company. Because not every user is authorized to see or edit the same amount of information, we use user rights.


You can create a project to collect and display data that interacts with each other. So a project is a collection of assets, dashboards, alerts, diagrams, images,… that are bundled together. You can think of a project as temporary, or as a permanent facility to which you want to add multiple dashboards. How exactly you do that can be read in this article. In addition, you can also invite users at the project level here.


Assets are the sensors that send measurements to the portal. These assets can be grouped by type or by self-created Asset group. A detailed explanation of assets and how to set them up for your company can be found in this article.



A dashboard is a collection of visualizations of data transmitted from one or more gateways and the devices connected to those gateways. A dashboard is basically a collection of widgets, such as a graph, or a pie chart, for example. This article tells you how to quickly set up a dashboard.

Alerts are alerts that the portal sends to you when one of your assets exceeds a certain value or performs an action. You can read how to set up Alerts in this article.

Manual input

The Manual input page serves to upload your own measurements or checks to the portal, this is data that cannot be picked up by a sensor. The information you add to the portal this way is processed in exactly the same way as data coming through sensors. This article tells you how to set up a form.

Work items are tasks that can be assigned to users, the user receives a notification about this and can then perform this task. On the Work items page you will also see a kanban board with these tasks, for more info about Work items you can consult this article. In this article you will find how to set up a work item.
