The Device Catalog screen displays a list of devices that are known to an organization site. The list will be empty if no devices have been added to the site. There are three methods for adding a device to a site: import an OmniVista CSV file, import an Excel XLSX file, or manually add a device.

To import devices from an existing Excel sheet (.xlxs), click on Import from… in the top-right corner of the Device Catalog screen and select XLSX template file. You will then be prompted to download an XLSX template file that contains instructions on how to configure the sheet file with the necessary device information.

Click on the Download XLSX template button and specify where you would like to save the template file. When you open the template file, instructions are provided about how to define the devices to be added.

  1. Fill out the template with information for each device that is to be imported. Once the file is complete and saved, return to Step 2 of the Import screen to select the template file to import.

  2. Click in the Site Assignment field to display a list of sites and select the site to which the devices defined in the XLSX file will be imported.

  3. Click on Import in the lower-right corner. The Device Catalog list for the site is populated with the imported devices.
