    Title:
    Monitoring Devices in the Inventory View
    Description:

    Overview

    The Inventory view portrays a live list of all discovered Shure wireless gear, as well as any offline devices. This view can be used to organize and configure settings for both online and offline devices, as well as a number of other actions.

    Sort and Organize

    The Inventory view allows you to sort and organize your devices in a variety of ways.

    Set your sort order by one of three options:

    • By Header (column headers show in Inventory view, like Model, Channel Name, Device ID, etc)
    • By Type (Device Type, like Microphone, In Ear Monitor, Intercom, etc)
    • By Zone (Zones that you've allocated and organized your devices into. For more information, consult the How do I create and utilize zones? topic)

    Filter

    You can also filter what devices are shown in the Inventory view. Use the sidebar on the right to display a subset of all the devices in your inventory. You can sort by a mixture of the following criteria:

    • Search term (freely typed)
    • By Tags (user-created tags assignable to all devices)
    • By Type (Device Type, like Microphone, In Ear Monitor, Intercom, etc)
    • By Manufacturer (useful when incorporating non-Shure gear)
    • By Zone (Zones that you've allocated and organized your devices into. For more information, consult the How do I create and utilize zones? topic)

    Device Discovery

    With a properly configured network, all networked Shure devices on your network should be discovered by Wireless Workbench and shown in this view.

    Online devices will appear with black text, and fully colored icons.

    To match a device in the Inventory view with its physical counterpart, right-click on the device and select "Flash". The front panel LEDs and display of the actual rack device will flash. (Tip: clicking on a device's icon on the far left will also flash the device).

    Offline Devices

    Offline devices act as placeholders for either online devices that are currently unavailable, or non-networked devices for which Wireless Workbench will analyze/coordinate frequencies.

    Offline devices will appear with gray text, and off-colored icons

    Any devices added through the Add New Device dialog will also show up in the Inventory view as an offline device.

    Likewise, devices imported from a show file or inventory file that are not merged with devices currently online will show up as offline devices.

    Modifying Device Parameters

    Editable device parameters for online and offline devices can be modified from the Inventory view. To change an editable parameter (for example, for example Frequency), double click on the frequency field of a given channel. Either type a new value of the frequency, or choose a value from the drop down.

    If you are editing an online device, the changes made will immediately be pushed to the hardware.
