How to Setup Display Groups the PageGate GUI (Windows) Client Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the video tutorial on Display Groups. In this tutorial, we’ll be going over what display groups are and how to configure them for use with the PageGate Client.
Display Groups have nothing to do with normal messaging groups. Instead, these groups allow administrators to control which recipients and groups the workstations are allowed to see. For example, let's say that you have 20 workstations that have the GUI client installed. Let's also say that 10 of them are for dispatching fire calls and that 10 of them are for dispatching police calls.
In this instance, you would want to create two display groups, one named 'fire' and the other named 'police' and populate them with the appropriate recipients. Once that's done, you can then tie each of the workstations to their appropriate display group and those workstations would only display the recipients and groups you’ve allowed them to.
To create a display group, open the PageGate Admin.
Right click Display Groups and select ‘Add’.
Give the Display Group a name and click Apply to add it to the list.
Now go to the Members sub-section of the display group and add the recipients and groups that are relevant.
When finished, click Apply.
Now that we’ve created the display group, we’ll need to tell the PageGate Client to use it. To do that, open the PageGate Client and go to File – Setup. In the ‘Display Groups’ section, select the display group from the dropdown list and click Apply.
When you do, you should notice that the client only displays the recipients and groups that are members of the display group you’ve tied it to.
It’s also important to note that you can tie a security user to a display group. That way, regardless of what workstation that user logs in to, their security profile in PageGate will only allow them access to the recipients and groups you’ve granted them permission to see. For more information on how to configure and use the security system, have a look at the PageGate’s Security System video tutorial.
This concludes the video tutorial on display groups and how they’re used with PageGate’s GUI Client.
