In InControl 2, you can selectively apply updates and easily sort through your information with the use of the Tagging mechanic. In InControl 2, a TAG is a keyword or term assigned to a Peplink device; once assigned, the TAG can be used for a number of purposes -

  • Tracking
  • Configuration
  • Reporting
  • Administrative
  • and more!

To configure the Tag, simply go to the Device Level for the applicable unit and scroll to TAG. Once there, simply assign the particular Keyword(s). Keep in mind that a device can have any number of TAGS assigned to it and a TAG can be assigned to any number of Devices in the Group.

Bulk Tagging -

You can also assign a TAG to a group of devices concurrently from the Group Level Dashboard. Hit the “Manage” option and select the applicable units. Then select TAG and assign the Keyword(s) to the applicable unit(s).

Now that you have got Tags set up, you have a number of options available to you for their use.

Under Notifications (Group Level), you can selectively decide if a unit(s) will send status updates -

Jason, I was great meeting and talking with you this week. I am poking around under the hood and I am curious about tagging. Is there a way to generate a lit of tags that have been created? Can we also place descriptions of that tag in a field with it, so we can ensure the the tags being assigned are the correct tags?

Hi Brian:

Glad to chat also!

Regarding Tag lists: Currently not elegantly, you can sort group lists via Tag and copy and paste things into a word doc but there isn’t a way that I’m aware of currently.

Throw something up in the forum in Feature Requests however! That does get eyes from Engineering to take a closer look and having it come from Partners means a great deal more in importance.
