The favorites screen allows you to place your most frequently used items on a single, customizable screen.
Even simply equipment can have a large number of controllable items. This situation is made more complex as additional equipment is added. It is not uncommon to have dozens or even hundreds of individual items in an automation system.
However, it is common that only a small number of these items are used frequently. The favorites screen addresses this scenario.
The favorites screen is available on most eKeypad applications and it can be added to custom Blueprint screens as a drop-in component. Once created on any device, the favorites screen will be transferred between devices as a part of configuration backups.
The favorites screen layout can also be customized. The editing mode allows a number of customizations to be performed:
- Re-order items within sections
- Move item between sections
- Re-order sections
- Add new sections
- Delete unnecessary sections
- Rename section names
- Flag sections to be collapsed by default
Please note that not all eKeypad applications contain a favorites screen or it may not display the screen at all times. The favorites screen is only displayed if the configured equipment contains a sufficient number and variety of items.
If the favorites screen is available but is not needed, it can be hidden using a setting in the Configuration screens in the eKeypad Application. The setting is located on the “Look an Feel” screen.
