Level Ratio (%)

Tags (User defined groups)

It is possible to insert tags (or user defined groups) for each tank, by directly filling the Tags column in the Tanks Configuration Template or by directly clicking in a row in the Tanks table, then clicking Edit    and then filling the Tags section below the table. 

Once tags are defined, those will be available in the Tank level page, so that is easier to search and find specific tanks of interest. Below some examples of groups that may be relevant:

  • grouping tanks by zones
  • grouping tanks by towns
  • grouping tanks by critical and non-critical
  • grouping tanks by transmission mains VS distribution system
  • etc, etc
