Switch Communications

There are two parts to every add, move or change that you make to a set.  The first part is to make the add, move or change and save it the cairs.net database.  The second part is to communication the add, move or change to the switch database. 

When a Unique representative setup your cairs.net database, the also setup a set of scripts.  A script sends the necessary information from the cairs.net database to the switch database.  After you save the information into your cairs.net database, click on the Go button within the Run Time ribbon group.  A small popup window opens; within the window is a list of scripts.  By clicking on the plus (+) sign next to the script name, you can view the additional values required before the script can be sent to the switch.  A value represents information that the switch needs before you can send the script to the switch. 

Although most of the values auto-populate from the information you entered within the Set Device window, you may be required to enter a value, simply click on the field and type in the necessary information.  Once all the required fields are completed, you have four choices for sending the scripts to the switch:

1.       Schedule – click the schedule field within the top line.   Click the drop-down arrow to access a calendar and from the calendar click the date to select, once clicked the date appears in the field (to change the month and year click the right or left arrow, and once at the appropriate month and year, click the number to select the date.)  The time (12:00 am) also populates in the box.  To change the time, click the hour, minute or am/pm to type-in the new time.  Then click the Continue button. 

2.       Continue – click the Continue button to send the script to the switch. 

3.       Skip – click the Skip button to make the changes within the cairs.net database but not in the switch.

4.       Cancel – click the Cancel button to abort the operation.
