Tags is another way to logically group information in the Samsara cloud platform. Users, Sensors, Inputs, Machines, and Dashboards can all be associated with a specific Tag to either allow or restrict what information is revealed to a given end user.
There are many creative uses for Tags that can help to organize the flow of information for users. An example of using Tags would be if a Rental Company wanted to give dashboard access of certain Sensors to some end-user but hide all other content.
- To access and edit these Tags, navigate to the “Settings'' section of the Samsara Cloud Platform.
- To add tags, Select the “+ Create a Tag” button, and fill out the information required:
Tag Name: The name of the tag group
Machines in Tag: Choose Samsara Machines to associate with this Tag name
Data Inputs in Tag: Choose Samsara Data Inputs to associate with this Tag name
Sensors in Tag: Choose Samsara Sensors to associate with this Tag name
Dashboards in Tag: Choose Samsara Dashboards to associate with this Tag name
Adding Users to Tags:
Adding Users to the Tag will restrict their views to only the I/O, alerts, etc. for those assets/machines. You can also tag data inputs too, but the asset/machine level may be easier.
