Modifying User Icons

Change how users are displayed on the Dispatch map.

Active handsets on the Dispatch map are by default be displayed as a 'pin'. Whilst functional, this isn't always useful for Dispatch, especially when dealing with a lot of users.

What follows here is a guide on how to change a user's 'pin' to one of our customised icons for the sake of clarity.

Step 1:

To modify a user's display icon, first find the user in the Terminals section of the BroadNet Dispatch Portal.

Click the edit button ( )  of the desired user to continue.

Step 2:

In the window that pops up, select the 'Icon' dropdown and scroll through the available options to find the icon you want the user to be represented by.

The icons we have available currently include:

  • Motorbike
  • Ambulance
  • Car
  • On foot

Select the icon you want and click Update Handset User.

Step 3:

Head back to Dispatch and (after a quick refresh) your user should now be represented by the icon you chose back in Step 2!
