Creating a Custom Marker in Mobile Access
Posted by Leanne Lloyd-Fairey on 30 September 2015 03:29 PM

Baseline's Mobile Access Advanced enables users to create custom markers to represent non-Baseline items, and then geo-locate the marker location from any web-enabled mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. Using this feature, you could create a custom marker to show the location of a pump station on the BaseManager map.

Note: Your custom markers display on the maps in BaseManager.

  1. Log into Mobile Access.
  2. Depending on your device and the version of the operating system, make sure all options such as Location, Location services, and Location reporting are enabled.
  3. Tap the controller that you want to associate the custom marker with.
  4. On the Controller Operations menu, tap Geo-Locate Device.
  5. On the Mark Device menu, tap Custom.
  6. Tap Add. The Custom Marker fields display.
  7. In the Label field, type up to 2 characters that will identify the marker on the map.

Note: If you leave the Label field blank, an error will occur when you save the custom marker. The custom marker will not display on the map.

  1. In the Name field, type the name of the custom marker.
  2. Tap one of the color boxes to apply a color to the custom marker.
  3. Walk to the place where the device that you want to mark is physically located.
  4. Tap Mark. A message indicates that your custom marker was saved.
