Post Using Player Views to Organize Your Network
on: June 29, 2012, 15:01

Many users do not realize you can open multiple views in the Player
Manager module. This feature is very useful when maintaining a large
network of players across a WAN. When combined with player metadata
and filters it’s easy to keep tabs on a vast installation.

First, let’s assign some metadata to the players (you can learn more
about this in the help guide by hitting F1 and opening “Adding metadata
to your players for use by other modules”).

Fig 1 – Adding Metadata

Now we can introduce a column into this view by selecting the same
metadata title (See the help file, "Changing the columns of data in your
player view"). It will appear on the far right hand side of the window.
It can be dragged into place by click-dragging the column title. It’s also
worth noting that you can change the name of a player in its properties.

Once we have metadata on all players, we can introduce a filter. Click
on the Filter button to bring up the filter wizard. In this dialog we can
choose the factors we wish to filter against, in this example I’m going
to choose the metadata title of Country being equal to Canada.

Once applied, my player view changes as expected.

Now I can save this view by clicking the Moxie ball (top left) and using
Save As. This view can now be opened by any Studio user.
