Blog from December, 2015

We want to get you the best help possible as fast as possible. If you'd like that too, then you can help us a great deal by letting us know a little about who we are talking to. 

To add more information on your profile:

  1. Click your profile picture in the upper right corner and select Profile.
  2. Click EDIT PROFILE and enter your personal details.

The information in the PERSONAL box will be visible for all community members. A title, an name, and a profile picture can be really nice and useful to have, when you are trying to help somebody.

Filling out information about your company is safe and will help us help you quicker. Only internal Schneider Electric support staff will be able to see the information in the COMPANY box.

Expert of the year

Thank you for all of your great work, Steve. You rock our socks off!


On Friday December 4 we released v2.3 (codename: Gunray).

The primary new feature we want to highlight is 'Add My Device' which is available from the top menu.

About Add My Device

StruxureWare for Data Centers supports tens of thousands of pieces of data center equipment across the Expert and Operation software. We are constantly working to grow our library of devices that we can model and monitor.

If a piece of equipment is missing, you can use this feature to request it and follow the progress on your profile page.

This feature is in beta: You can request support for devices that are not currently supported in StruxureWare Data Center Expert and/or StruxureWare Data Center Operation and see the progress of all devices requested since launch (4 December 2015). We have not yet added the full device library of everything that is supported in the software.

To get access to this feature you must be logged in and have at least one product associated to your DCIM Support Community profile. 

Other items in this release

  • Attach files to feature requests
  • Log-files auto-hide when uploaded

 

Enjoy, friends!

And don't hesitate to let us know if something can be improved or if you have ideas for new features.

Best,

DCIM Support Community Team
