Evidence Manager Tutorial:

Using Templates

Overview

Templates are preset formats that contain information related to the “look and feel” of Evidence Manager. Once you set the appearance of Evidence Manager to best suit your needs, you can save these preferences to a template. Whenever necessary, you can simply load one of the available templates to quickly customize the Evidence Manager UI.

Templates can contain:

  • Information related to resizing and hiding of the following panels: Device Manager, Map View, Metadata View, Bookmarks, and Metadata Player
  • Information related to the layout, such as the number of tiles, camera order, and overlay

Templates that are previously-created are arranged alphabetically, and available with each instance of logging in.
