Using the + operator
If (and only if) a search term only returns one single result object, adding the + operator in front of the search term will attempt to open..
- A device’s dashboard page
- A Map
- A data collectors dashboard page
..in the order listed. If I enter pl into my search box, I get:
Search only returns a single device as the result. Of course I can click on the Platinum hyperlink to open the device’s dashboard but I can also enter +pl in the search box by which the Platinum dashboard gets opened right away!
Using the ++ operator
Adding the ++ operator in front of a string will attempt to open the map that contains the device that is uniquely identified by the search term.
The device is highlighted by a colored border around its icon. The ++ operator makes it easy to find a device on a map when a project contains a large number of devices and/or maps. Entering ++pl into the search box of my small project opens the map with the highlighted device (screenshot below). The device will automatically de-select after an average of 10 seconds!
