How do I add a hardware location?
Once the Treez App is installed on your computer, a 'location' must be configured for it so Treez is able to recognize the device. This can be done using our Hardware Agent (HWA).
Step 1: From within the Treez portal, navigate to Configuration > Config Page > Hardware > Add Location. This option is located at the bottom of the list of existing locations.
Step 2: Tap Add, then enter a name for the location of the device and hit Save Changes. For example, if the device is located at Intake, you may opt to enter "RECEPTION_1". Short, descriptive names are best.
Note: Do not use '/' or other special characters (underscores are OK) when naming of your hardware locations.
- If you have multiple devices in a small area, you may want to physically label each of them with their corresponding name, so you're aware of which device is associated with which location.
NOTE: Locations should correspond to the physical location the device is located in your shop.
Step 3: Ensure the device is plugged into your computer and open the Treez App from your Applications folder, or by using the Search box on the taskbar.
Step 4: From this screen, enter your Treez portal URL [yourshopname.treez.io] and click GO. On the following screen, choose the location you just created and click GO.
Step 5: After you select your location, the Treez App will scan for devices quickly and it will display a 'Device List Updated' message. This indicates that the app has recognized your hardware, and has linked it to the correct location.
Step 6: Refresh your Treez portal and navigate back to Configuration > Config Page > Hardware Agent. Your newly created Location will be listed here.
Step 7: Click on the desired location to expand this dropdown to reveal each of the hardware options available. From the corresponding dropdown menu, select the model and click 'Test Scan/Print' to confirm it's working properly.
NOTE: If you're not seeing your device in your location dropdown, hit Scan For New Devices.
