Helium Dashboard Release - March 16, 2017

We just cut and deployed a new release of Helium Dashboard. (This happens quite frequently and we’re going to try keep the blog current with all new release details moving forward). Here’s a quick look at the bigger features and fixes.


New Label Creation

New in this release is a way to create labels on the fly without first selecting sensors. In the Labels UI there is now an input box in the lower left-hand corner. Here’s how it works.
