Using plan view to add existing or new groups to a floor plan is super simple. For existing groups all you need to do is enter edit mode by clicking "Edit" down the bottom left in the floors panel, select the control system that the group is on that you want to add, select the "Auto draw groups" function and select the group you want to automatically draw. This will then generate a boundary around all of the devices currently placed on the plan that is apart of that group.
You can also choose an existing group when drawing a group but it will not automatically draw around devices that are already assigned to it but rather the area that is specified by you. To select your own groups, there are a couple of ways of doing so. Under the "Group" tab there are several selection modes here. The default one is "Free select". This doesn't draw anything and just allows you to click and select one or more devices on the map and then can select "Add to group" under the functions section to automatically generate the group's region around the selected icons.
If you select devices that have no ECGs or select multiple icons that are not on the same control system then you will not be able to add them to a group and a message explaining that will be displayed under the functions.
The other selection modes are similar to the modes under the "Home" tab but these are used for specifying the group's region before adding them to a group. When selecting "Rectangle" or "Polygon" modes you can draw the relevant shape around the devices that you want to add to a group and the shape will not disappear when finished selecting icons. If the selected devices can be added to a group you can then select "Add to group" function and select the group to add them to and it will use the region that you drew as the group's region rather than generating it.
New groups can also be created from the "Add to group" menu if any groups are able to be created on the control system. Once groups have been created they can have their colours or labels update from the right side panel. They can also have their labels moved on the map if they are not in a desirable position. The boundary of a group's region can also be edited when selected. New vertices can be created by clicking anywhere on the boundary of the group and dragging.
