You can use iOn IO (input/output) profiles to display custom labels for the digital inputs generated by your devices on the Tracking screen (such as a Plow Up and Plow Down label for the active and inactive status of a plow input). This article describes the various features of the Admin - IO Profiles screen, which you access by clicking  >> Admin >> IO Profiles. The Admin - IO Profiles screen is where your organization's iOn administrator will add new IO profiles and edit or delete existing ones. After you create an IO profile, you can associate it to an asset that has its designated inputs (on the Admin - Assets screen).

Note: Be aware that IO profiles don't do anything by themselves; they must be assigned to an asset in order to have your custom input labels appear on the iOn map.

If your default iOn group is your organization's top-level group, the Admin - IO Profiles screen might be blank when you open it. If that is the case, select Include Subgroups at the bottom of the screen to see your IO profiles.

Note: For information about the banner at the top and accordion menu on the left (which you open by clicking ), see Navigating the iOn Site.

Here is an explanation of the grid icons and column headers:

  • Group: The name of the fleet group the IO profile belongs to.
  • Name: The IO profile identifier, which is often the type of vehicle, device, and/or inputs the installation includes.
  • Inheritable: Whether the IO profile can also be applied to assets in subgroups of the group it is assigned to (so the subgroups, or child groups, can inherit the profile from the parent group).
  • Status: The IO profile's current state in the database, such as Enabled.
    Note: Future plans include being able to set an IO profile to Disabled or Suspended and then not allow it to be associated with an asset; however, this feature isn't currently working.
  • Actions: Functions you can perform for the IO profile on this screen.
  • : Opens the Edit window for the IO profile, in which you can modify its settings. (See Editing an IO Profile for details.)
  • : Opens the Audit window, in which you can see what edits have been made to the IO profile's data and by whom. (See Auditing Changes Made to an IO Profile for details.)
  • : Deletes the IO profile. (See Deleting an IO Profile for details.)

These are the options along the bottom of the screen:

  • Select Columns: Enables you to add or remove columns. (See Customizing the Grid Layout for details.)
  • Clear Filters: If you have applied filters to any columns (see Sorting and Filtering Column Data), removes them. Note that this is necessary before you can apply any subsequent filters for a column.
  • Clear Sort: If you have sorted the data in a column (see Sorting and Filtering Column Data), removes the sort.
  • Export to CSV: Exports and downloads the grid data to a CSV (comma-separated value) file.
  • Include Subgroups: Displays the IO profiles of the subgroups (if any) of the group you have selected in the Group Chooser. (See Choosing a Group to View Globally for details on how to change the group each screen will display the data for upon launch.)
  • Add IO Profile: Begins the process of adding an individual IO profile to your iOn account. (See Adding an IO Profile for details.)
  • Refresh: Refreshes the data on the screen (which can be especially useful if other users are making changes).

Below the grid are icons that enable you to navigate through the pages of data, if needed. See Paging Options for an explanation of these.
